HEAPEY PARISH COUNCIL

Heapey Parish extends from the Leeds - Liverpool Canal in the north to Anglezarke reservoir in the south and from the eastern edge of Knowley in the west to Heapey Moor in the east.

It is a rural parish between the settlements of White Coppice, Wheelton and Heapey Chase but still just 10 minutes from Chorley town centre. The main economic activity is farming and associated support services. Leisure activities, particularly equestrian-based, are becoming more prevalent as an economic alternative.

Heapey Parish Council is made up of 6 members of the local community and meets in the White Coppice Rooms at St Barnabas’ Church. The Council meeting are normally held on the first Tuesday of every other month starting in January. Noticeboards by the War Memorial in Wheelton, in White Coppice, entrance to Heapey Chase and a new one at junction of Blackburn Road with A674, carry information about the work of the Council and meeting agendas.
