From traditional cottages and Victorian terraces to modern apartments and family homes, South Ribble offers you an extensive range of places to live. Whether you prefer a busy town centre or quiet rural base - the choice is yours!

Penwortham, Leyland, Bamber Bridge and Walton-le-Dale are thriving communities within minutes of major transport routes while Longton, Much Hoole and Samlesbury for example offer quieter rural surroundings. Even more attractive living spaces are being developed over the coming years.

High quality education is easily accessible for you and your family, from nursery through to award winning higher education at Runshaw College and the University of Central Lancashire.

There are extensive leisure and sporting facilities, including our award winning Tennis Centre.  For shopping, you have bespoke, independent retailers in the local and town centres and national retail brands in nearby out-of-town shopping centres.  A great choice of restaurants, cafés and country pubs means you’ll find plenty of places to treat yourself, meet friends and relax.

We have ambitious regeneration projects designed to further boost the appeal and vitality of the local area.

Regeneration of town and district centres including Higher Walton, Lostock Hall and Leyland aims to encourage economic growth and create a safe, more attractive environment for shoppers, visitors and everyone who lives and works here. Projects include new heritage gateway features and environmental improvements designed to makes centres accessible and attractive to visit and spend some time.

We are committed to working with businesses and the wider local community through “My Neighbourhoods”, Town Teams and local business networks to ensure that work meets local aspirations and needs and continues to attract businesses and visitors.

Love where you live.
