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.
