Council

Foulridge planter

(Many thanks to Tony and Yvonne Heys of Hill Top for planter maintenance)

Parish Councillors give their services for free. The Chairmanship rotates annually. We are a non-political body, and liaise with Pendle Borough Council, Lancashire County Council, Lancashire Constabulary, the Fire Service and NHS Trust North West Ambulances to ensure that Foulridge receives a proper level of services.

As the primary level of local government, our duties include:

  • Receiving planning applications and making recommendations to Pendle Council
  • Annually letting out our Allotments, Grazing Land and Sports Fields
  • Maintaining roadside verges and wayside seats
  • We own our Village Hall, and we administer it through our Village Hall Committee, which provides an annual Christmas Party for our Senior Citizens
  • We have a Five Year Plan of Projects which we think will benefit and enhance our village
  • We have recently formed Noyna Publishing to publish our Honorary Village Historian Fay Oldland’s new book, The Story of Foulridge, 2nd Edition
