A COUNCIL has revealed the time and place for five consultations for its blueprint for homes and jobs until 2037.

Hyndburn Council's Local Plan will be sent to a government inspector after the public is given the chance to comment on it.

It includes a new country park in Oswaldtwistle and a garden village of more than 1,800 homes in Huncoat as well as major redevelopments of Accrington Town Centre controversial and new housing on The Clayton Triangle.

The public 'drop in' consultation events, all running from 3.30pm to 7.30pm, will be at Clayton Community Centre on Wednesday November 2; Oswaldtwistle Arts Centre on Thursday November 3; Bank Mill House on Friday November 4; Rishton Conservative Club on Tuesday November 8; and Accrington Town Hall on Wednesday November 9.

A further event will take place on November in Huncoat either at the primary school or St Augustine's Church.

Planning officers will attend the sessions to explain the blueprint and answer questions.
