Get involved

Hyndburn Borough Council firmly believes that involving local people is vitally important in exploring the options for new development In Huncoat. A collaborative approach based on understanding local aspirations and concerns will help to shape proposals and ensure the new development is integrated with the existing village, to create lasting benefits for both existing and new residents.

We want to know more about:

  •  The needs of local residents
  • The positives and negatives about living in Huncoat
  • Your aspirations for the village.

Please do get involved, have your say and help shape the future of Huncoat.
