Council plan

Our vision

Wyre is a place where everyone can prosper. We want everyone in Wyre to have access to jobs and share the benefits of economic growth; live in thriving, safe, more environmentally sustainable and welcoming communities; and be healthier and independent for longer.

Making our vision a reality

Our commitments in four key areas will support our vision. These commitments form our actions and our plans. Over the next four to eight years we will:
