There has been a Parish Council in Wheelton for more than 100 years with the first Council meeting in 1894. The last parish council was formed in May 2006. Wheelton Parish covers the settlements of Higher Wheelton, Wheelton village (sometimes known locally as Lower Wheelton), Briars and Buckholes Brow and Logwood. The parish also extends south-east to Wheelton Plantation and Wheelton Moor.
Wheelton Parish Council is made up of 7 voluntary Councillors who are elected for a four-year term of office. The Council meets at the Village Hall, West View (at the top of Meadow Street). Meetings are normally held on the first Monday of each month, starting at 8.00pm to approximately 9.30pm.
Issues of continuing concern to the Parish Council include policing of the village, parking, road safety, leisure facilities and the environment of the village. Please note that agenda's are published on the Parish Noticeboards a week prior to the meeting date. Parish noticeboards for Wheelton can be found at the War Memorial Wheelton and outside Stocks Garage/Petrol Station in Higher Wheelton.
Wheelton Parish Council works closely with Chorley Borough Council and neighbouring Parish Councils on issues of common interest.
