THE BIG BURSCOUGH SURVEY - RESULTS.
Burscough Business Network Meeting
Burscough is a thriving community of more than 9,000 residents located by the Leeds to Liverpool Canal on the A59 about half way between Liverpool and Preston. Burscough is home to Martin Mere Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre, Merseyside Passenger Transport Trust, the Wharf and much more.
We have a rich history from the 12th Century Priory, the Leeds and Liverpool canal and HMS Ringtail, two railway stations, lots of pleasant walks, the best places to eat and drink, and a great welcome. Burscough is a small town that feels like a village, with a range of excellent shops and the best industrial space you can find. The town is set for major growth in the coming years and there is always lots for a Parish Council to do.
Use the Menu above to find details of how the Parish Council works. You can look up Councillors details and how to get in touch; agendas and minutes of meetings, news and items of interest.
If you would like to get involved with the work of the Parish Council, or comment on any issue of Parish Council business, your contribution will be most welcome. Come to any of our meetings or contact us whichever way suits you best.
