Welcome to the Freckleton Parish Council Web site
The web site has now been operational since April 2004. In that time the amount of data added has increased significantly, such that we have had to make some changes to the navigation, and add new pages. We undertook a major redesign of the website in July 2016 to arrive at the version you see now. The original mission statement, to confine the site to Freckleton Parish Council matters, has been maintained.
Throughout the site you will find thumbprints of various parts of the Parish. Click on these to enlarge them.
On this site you will find the full unabridged meeting minutes from Jan 2004 onwards, the Parish Council Newsletter, the names and contact numbers of your councillors and the various Committee memberships,as well as. forthcoming meeting dates and other council activities.
You are welcome to contact the Parish Council via the Parish Clerk on any matters of concern to you. However, before doing so please consult the FAQ page, your query may already have been answered.
Other details about the Parish of Freckleton can be found at www.freckleton.org.This site is totally independent of the Parish Council. It contains details of local businesses, shops, and organisations, as well as forthcoming activities within the Parish of Freckleton.
We hope you enjoy and support this site.
