A new parish council covering parts of the Marsh and Scotforth West could be established in Lancaster.
A petition from residents has gone in to Lancaster City Council asking for the new parish, to be called Aldcliffe-with-Stodday Parish Council.
A public consultation is now under way.
Anyone who works or has property interests in the creation of Aldcliffe-with-Stodday Parish Council is invited to submit representations in writing to Lancaster City Council before 5pm on Friday August 5.
Responses should be sent to: The Election Office, Lancaster City Council, Town Hall, Dalton Square, Lancaster, LA1 1PJ or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information and a map of the proposed area is available on the city council’s website at www.lancaster.gov.uk/governance-review.
