Welcome to Mawdesley Parish Council

The Parish Council is the first tier of civil administration followed by Chorley Borough Council and Lancashire County Council. A proportion of the Council tax – the Parish Precept goes to fund its activities.

The Parish Council is elected every 4 years, the next election being in Spring 2022.

If you would like to know more about the work of the Parish Council, please have a look at the minutes which are regularly updated on the website. The Parish Council meet on the second Tuesday of the month at the Village Hall (except for June and August). There is an open forum at the start of the meeting where everyone is welcome and can express their opinions.

Mawdesley Village

Mawdesley is a tranquil village, enjoying a picturesque setting amidst fields and trees. It has charming homes, three churches, pubs, a fabulous village hall, a first-class cricket ground and a busy social life. Mawdesley offers fresh air, friendly folk, and a slower pace of life.

Mawdesley thrives on its foundations of strong family and community values and does so to make the village appealing to all who live, work and visit. We have some of the best village facilities around, with numerous community events, and many thriving clubs and organisations all propped up by local volunteers. These things all combine to enrich and improve our quality of life. Mawdesley remains a place with a heart and villagers know how to come together.

Mawdesley benefits from a very active community with numerous thriving clubs and organisations. It is also home to two primary schools and three churches.

If you would like to know more, or have any questions, please feel free to contact one of our Parish Councillors, or the Clerk to the Council, who should at least be able to point you in the right direction.
