Fylde is a local government district with borough status in Lancashire, England. It covers part of the Fylde peninsula. The council's headquarters are in St Annes. [ [http://www.fylde.gov.uk/ FBC Website] ] Some council departments, including Planning and an office of the Registrar, were previously located in Wesham, but in 2007 these offices were transferred to the ownership of the NHS North Lancashire Primary Care Trust.

Fylde borough was formed under the Local Government Act 1972, on April 1, 1974 by the merger of the borough of Lytham, Kirkham urban district, and Fylde Rural District.

The armorial arms of the borough bear the motto of the former Fylde RDC "Gaudeat Ager" from Psalm 96: ‘Let the field (Fylde) be joyful' - "Let Fylde Prosper". [ [http://www.fylde.gov.uk/Category.aspx?cat=1827 Fylde Borough Council Armorial Bearings] ]
