In plans proposed by the Boundary Committee for reorganisation of local government into unitary authorities in Lancashire if North West England votes to have an elected regional assembly; the district would possibly be split into two, with the western part going with Sefton and the eastern part going to Wigan.
In the original plan this controversially included splitting the town of Ormskirk itself. These have since been changed by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, and Ormskirk is entirely included in the proposed Sefton and West Lancashire authority.
