Standish Voice committee meetings are usually held monthly, typically on the third or sometimes the fourth Tuesday of the month at 7.45pm. Members have a right to attend and members of the public are also invited to attend.
The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 17 at 7.45pm at our new venue of Albert’s on School Lane.
Standish Neighbourhood Plan has now been officially adopted after 94.5% of people voted for it in the referndum.
The turnout was 30.4% – thanks to everyone who voted.

The Christmas Market will return in 2019 and will be held on Saturday, November 30.
Standish Voice’s third Market in December was a huge success with indoor and outdoor stalls, food and drink, entertainment and attractions.

THE LINE CYCLEWAY CAMPAIGN
We have been working with Wigan Council to improve the non-road transport network around Standish, including better footpaths and cyclepaths.
We worked with Wigan Council to upgrade The Line, which has been turned from a muddy track into a modern, shared use route for walkers, cyclists and horse riders.
The former mineral line is now very popular, litter bins have been added, and we are continuing to work with Wigan Council and others to landscape the route and provide opportunities for Incredible Edible planting of fruit trees and soft fruit bushes.

There are more policies to improve footpaths, bridleways, including the proposed Standish Loop in the draft Standish Neighbourhood Plan.
