Communities in Wyre are being asked to suggest potential development sites across the borough.

Wyre Council wants people to identify any land or premises that might be suitable for housing, traveller accommodation, employment, retail, leisure or other commercial uses.

The results will be used to inform Wyre’s Local Plan, the council’s chief planning document for growth and development of the borough over the next 15 to 20 years.

Coun Peter Gibson, leader of Wyre Council, said: “This is an important opportunity for local communities to help shape future development in Wyre.

“We want to hear from residents, landowners, parish and town councils, elected members and community groups about sites or premises in their area that might be suitable for new homes, businesses or shops. You don’t have to be the owner of a site to put it forward and you can propose a number of uses for each site. The council will look at all the suggestions and the most suitable will go into Wyre’s Local Plan for potential development.”

People have until noon on March 24 to submit their suggestions and can do so online at
