The authority has produced a draft plan that will guide future growth and development in Wyre through to 2028 and wants people to have their say on the proposals.

Wyre Core Strategy – Shaping the Future from Fells to Shore, sets out a vision for the entire borough, including where new homes, employment and shops will be located as well as which areas will be regenerated and conserved.

Coun Gordon McCann, cabinet member with responsibility for economic development and regeneration, said: “This is the council’s most important planning document and sets out how and where Wyre will be developed.

It includes where new homes and businesses will be concentrated, how the transport network will be improved and how we’ll tackle issues such as flood risk and renewable energy.

“The views of the people of Wyre are essential in shaping this plan. I urge anyone who lives, works or shops in Wyre, to find out how the core strategy will affect them and tell us what they think. This is a real opportunity to play a part in shaping your area.”

Key proposals within the plan include focusing regeneration on Fleetwood and Thornton, creating employment hubs in Thornton, Poulton and Catterall and providing 3,410 new homes.
