Issue - meetings

Questions from Members of the Forum and the public

Meeting: 22/03/2023 - Chorley Liaison (Item 6)

Questions from Members of the Liaison and the public

In order to allow members of the Liaison and members of the public to raise issues of local concern, a period of 20 minutes has been set aside.


A member of the public may speak for no more than 3 minutes.  Members of the public are not required to give notice of the issue they intend to raise, although it is expected in the case of service issues that the appropriate mechanisms for resolving the issue have been explored. 


Where a question is raised which cannot be answered at the meeting, a record will be kept by officers supporting the meeting and it will be responded to via the appropriate mechanism.


A question had been received from Councillor Alan Cornwell in relation to the Chorley Little Theatre, and the additional seating which was now blocking the emergency exit. The Director of Communities advised that Environmental Health Officers would visit the premises to take a look.

Another question was received in relation to cyclists speeding through pedestrianised areas, particularly within the town centre. The Leader of the Council explained that the Council was aware of the issue and was taking steps to prevent it from happening.


It was acknowledged that it was not commuters causing an issue but youths, mainly in the evenings and at weekends.
