Cleveleys is a well maintained town which is popular with tourists and home to the many residents who live and work here.
Cleveleys covers a reasonably large area, taking in the coastline, town centre, residential areas and open land, including Thornton, with whom the postal address is linked as 'Thornton Cleveleys'.
'Thornton Cleveleys' doesn't actually exist on a map, the two separate districts were once joined by the railways, as the now closed station was once known as 'Thornton for Cleveleys'. As other things do with the passage of time, the 'for' has been dropped with the passage of time.
In 1974, following the Local Government Act of 1972, Thornton Cleveleys merged with Poulton Urban District, Preesall, the municipal borough of Fleetwood and the rural district of Garstang to form the Borough of Wyre.
Along the Fylde Coast, there are a number of public sector headquarters, which contribute to improving the economy of the area. Wyre is a borough which, apart from small areas, doesn’t suffer from significant levels of deprivation or unemployment, with all the accompanying benefits to the community.
A wide range of housing stock is on offer in Cleveleys, including everything that the housebuyer could wish for, from apartments, small houses and bungalows for first time buyers, downsizers and retirees, attractive semi-detatched and town houses for young families, and an impressive range of high quality detached accommodation, with the average Council Tax band being band D.
The residents and visitors to Cleveleys also enjoy an impressive range of public facilities. There are a number of local schools for all ages and a number of private schools within easy reach.
The YMCA is the partner organisation who deliver sporting facilities throughout the Borough of Wyre, and manage the sports centre at Thornton from where they deliver programmes for all the community, from the smallest of toddlers right through to the oldest people in the area.
There's an active community spirit in Cleveleys with a large group of local people who are each involved in their own groups but work together to create bigger and better events and projects for the town, like the Light up a Life event at Christmas and the successful Cleveleys In Bloom.
As part of the Borough of Wyre, Cleveleys is well maintained and looked after by the local Council, with the bigger infrastructure things like roads, street lighting and such like being under the control of Lancashire County Council.
All in all, at Cleveleys the spirit of community you'd expect to find in the British Village still exists, side by side with the best of modern facilities that you would expect in the twenty first century
