PLACE Penninne Lancashire
Building Control




The Pennine Lancashire Housing Partnership was established in January 2010, formalising years of existing partnership work in the sub-region. 


The Partnership comprises local authorities, housing organisations and a range of other stakeholders that have an interest in influencing policy and maximising resources to meet the housing related needs of the area.  Its role is to provide the direction and delivery of the Pennine Lancashire Housing Strategy and Local Investment Plan. 


In March 2010, the area’s first Local Investment Agreement 2010/11 was signed with the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).  A Local Investment Plan for 2011/14 has been developed which sets out the key strategic priorities for Pennine Lancashire.
