Moss Side, Lancashire

Moss Side, Lancashire

Moss Side is a suburban, semi-rural community on the western side of Leyland, Lancashire, England. The suburb is constantly growing. It is adjacent to Bretherton, Ulnes Walton and Midge Hall.

There is a Scouts Group in the area and a Concert Party who perform for the elderly. There are bowling and running groups in the community as well.

There were plans to build a new Redrow apartment development, but local residents fought a determined campaign to oppose this and planning permission was ultimately refused in December 2005.

A new ball court and a children's playground were completed in 2005 and a better community is coming together overall, however some minor crimes still take place in the area.

Moss Side has seen an increase in community involvement in recent years. This has delivered benefits such as the Moss Side Community Newsletter, a Moss Side Football Team and the new [ 'Your Moss Side'] website.
