Silverdale Parish Council

Welcome to Silverdale Parish Council’s Web Site

Silverdale is a small but thriving village in Lancashire, situated on the border with Cumbria and facing westwards into Morecambe Bay. It is a popular retirement area and also an area which attracts many tourists and holidaymakers. It is located within one of Britain’s smallest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – the Arnside/Silverdale AONB.

The community of around 1,500 residents is well served with small, friendly shops and enjoys excellent services provided by the two doctors’ surgeries, village school, library, two village halls, two churches, a fire station, community policing supported by the Neighbourhood Watch group and, of course, the Parish Council.

This Web Site is the official site of Silverdale Parish Council and is essentially a ‘noticeboard’ site, for Parish Council business matters. However it also incorporates the final version of the “Parish Plan” which has been created by members of the Parish Council and representatives of most organisations within the village.
