The Lilford Estate and Tarleton Parish Council are collectively working together to prepare a vision for Tarleton and the neighbouring villages over the next 30 years

Context of the Masterplan
Why Create a Masterplan
The Masterplan Vision

The Masterplan relates to Tarleton, which is the largest of the villages in the Northern Parishes : the population of Tarleton Parish is approximately 5,600. Mark Square at the centre of Tarleton Village provides a range of services and facilities to meet local needs, including a Health Centre, Library, Spar shop, Pharmacy, Bakery, Restaurant, Takeaway and Public Houses as well as other shops. 

The Lilford Estate and Tarleton Parish Council are collectively working together on a development Masterplan, which presents a unique opportunity to create a sustainable vision for Tarleton and its neighboring villages, that seeks to meet the needs of both existing and future communities, providing new homes of high quality design and opportunities for employment over the next 30 years.


There are 400 agricultural holdings in West Lancashire, employing 2,300 people with a further 2,500 jobs in food production, accounting for 10% of jobs in West Lancashire. 

The Masterplan seeks to show how it can support employment, agriculture and local economic growth and importantly how infrastructure and wider community benefits could be provided for the residents of Tarleton

The Sites Under Review
History of the Lilford Estate

The Sites under review are identified on the Masterplan. The principles now set out against the individual areas, are based on a preliminary survey and desktop information: any further exploration of site planning and development objectives would be based on more detailed surveys and analysis. 

The Lilford Estate has a long standing legacy in Tarleton and the surrounding locality, being owners of agricultural- and other land which accommodates many of the facilities in the village centre, including Mark Square and the playing fields off Carr Lane, for the benefit of the cricket, rugby and football clubs and for walking at Carr Heys Woodland.

The Lilford Estate remains committed to ensuring the sustainable development of Tarleton, and through this Masterplan has the opportunity to provide further lasting benefits, as previous Lord Lilford's have sought to achieve. 

The Lilford Estate and Tarleton Parish Council are collectively working together to prepare a Masterplan, which sets out a sustainable vision for Tarleton and its neighbouring villages over the next 30 years.
