Westway playing fields sports development

Zoe Whiteside, Planning Policy,Housing and Open Space Strategy Manager, will attend to give an update on the Westway playing fields sports development. 


Further information can be found here:


Update from County Councillor Keith Iddon (Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport)

CC Iddon will attend to answer any queries on highways and transport issues.


Issues previously raised have included:

1.    Use of roads in Bretherton by HGVs - Rural roads are being adversely affected by HGVs, however the opening of the Penwortham By Pass would give the County Council the opportunity to reroute HGVs away from Bretherton. 

2.    Speed Limits on North Roadd, Bretherton - Residents are constantly complaining about the speed of traffic along this road and have given examples of cars and motor cycles travelling at well above the 50-mph speed limit. The Parish Council has asked that the speed limit be reduced to 30 mph.

3.    Lack of parking enforcement in villages in evenings.

4.    The procurement process for public transport.


Item requested by Adlington Town Council

1.    Until this year the Police have always been in attendance at the Adlington Remembrance Day parade and have provided traffic management during the short periods in which Railway Road needs to be closed. This year the Town Council is planning to engage a traffic management company to ensure that the event can go ahead. The event in Adlington is held in association with Heath Charnock, Anderton and Rivington Parishes. Can Chorley Council provide any assistance for future events by streamlining the road closure application process for Remembrance Sunday, providing marshals and/or training for these, or any other support?


2.    Would it be possible for Adlington (specifically Railway Road) to erect lamp-post banners similar to those on Market Street in Chorley on Railway Road in Adlington? Who needs to give permission for these, and who changes the banners in Chorley?


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.
