The Council and Documents


Earby is a small town and civil parish within the Borough of Pendle in Lancashire, England. It is 5 miles (8.0 km) north of Colne, 7 miles (11.3 km) south-west of Skipton, and 11 miles (17.7 km) north-east of Burnley. The parish had a population of 6,183 recorded in the 2011 census.


Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, from 1909 to 1974, Earby formed an urban district and the Council was then Earby Urban District Council. In the large reorganization of local government in the 1972 Act, in 1974 Earby became Earby Parish Council, in the West Craven area of Pendle. Local efforts in 2011 led to the council becoming Earby Town Council, and it is part of the West Craven Area Committee on Pendle Borough Council.
