In October 2007 The Parish Council held an open meeting with a view to having a Parish Plan for Adlington. A follow up meeting took place in December of people who were interested. A result of that meeting was the formation of a Parish Plan Steering Group. (PPSG). A questionnaire was sent to all Adlington households to find out the interests of the Parish. The Parish Plan was published in 2009 and an implementation group moved forward with the recommendations.
