West Lancashire Borough Council is responsible for processing planning permission, planning applications and appeals in the borough. It is composed of 54 councillors with the Labour party currently forming the majority of the council seats. The district was founded as part of the Local Government Act of 1974. It was a result of a merger between Ormskirk and Skelmersdale and Holland urban districts, in addition to the Wigan Rural District and West Lancashire Rural District.  The authority covers 347 square miles.

The district is also known as West Lancs. Consequently, the council is also referred to as West Lancs Borough Council or West Lancs Council.
