Many of us aspire to have the best in life and we believe that the borough can offer some of the best places to live in the North of England.

The borough is a much sought after area to live, not least due to the stunning environment, our unique towns and villages and the people that make Ribble Valley what it is.

Ranging from sleepy villages to bustling towns, much of the area can offer access to large cities across the North West through road and rail links. All of our towns and villages are grouped in to Wards and there are detailed profiles available on each of these, covering such items as population size, age profile, ethnicity, employment levels and educational attainment.

Whilst we maintain a reputation of being a very desirable place to live, we are also mindful of taking action to ensure that there is a good availability of affordable housing, and are working to help people to continue to live in the borough that they grew up in.

Through careful management of our service costs the borough council is delighted with its longstanding record of charging its residents the lowest level of Council Tax in Lancashire, but still maintaining strong levels of service satisfaction.

In addition to existing housing becoming available for sale or rent, there are currently a number of new developments within the borough. This all helps to ensure a good mix of housing to meet everyone’s individual needs and requirements.
