Council web sites

The Freckleton Parish Council have been very active in creating their own web sites. They provide information about the actions and plans of the Parish Council. The minutes of previous meetings are available on the sites in PDF format. The Parish Plan site has now gone, as the Plan has been completed.

Public Member Council Meeting Notes

Public attendence at the Parish Council meetings is poor, usually only 3 or 4 people. Whilst I have attended all the meetings in the last year or so and made notes at each, it would appear that nobody is interested in reading them! My Internet Host records show that no one has downloaded these notes, so I have decided to stop publishing them. If there is any interest then please email me by clicking the link at the bottom of the page and expressing your opinion!
