This item has been requested by a number of Parish Councils. 


Item requested by Heath Charnock Parish Council

Could LCC confirm that the Ironman event will follow that used in 2019? If it is going to be changed, could LCC explain the proposed route and why the change has been made?


An update will be presented from LCC at the meeting. 


Item requested by Eccleston Parish Council

The Parish Council is looking into the possibility of a CCTV camera to assist with anti-social behaviour around the Community Hub. The building has broadband and wi-fi.


The Council would like to ask whether the images could be monitored by the control room staff monitoring the Chorley system.


A response will be provided at the meeting. 


Item requested by Heapey Parish Council

The Parish Council would like the request the provision of Electric Vehicle Charging Points in rural villages is investigated.


A response will be provided at the meeting.


Item requested by Heapey Parish Council

Following information on the Rural Community Energy Fund received via Chorley Council a suggestion to install a solar farm on a reservoir in the Heapey parish was put forward.


As a project of this nature is way beyond the resources of a small parish council, the Parish Council wonders whether there is a possibility of Chorley Council leading on a project of this nature which might also involve other rural parishes?


An update on the work of the Overview and Scrutiny Task Group into Developing the Council’s Green Agenda will be given at the meeting. 


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.
