Welcome to Garstang Town Council

Garstang is an ancient market town in mid Lancashire in the north west of England. It has a current electorate of 3,500. The town’s history stretches as far back as the Domesday book and beyond when it was spelled “Cherestanc”. For centuries Garstang, situated between the much larger communities of Preston and Lancaster, has been the hub of the wider agricultural community. A market with a heritage dating back to the Stuart period and earlier continues to be held every Thursday. Garstang has its own town council, which runs this website. The council has 12 members and employs a clerk and a lengthsman. The council’s powers are limited but it keeps a close watching brief on many issues, including planning, highways, policing, etc..A parish precept is levied to fund the council’s spending.
