Minutes

 

The Parish Council holds four meetings a year – in May, August, November and February – usually on the second or third Wednesday of these months.

The meetings are held in Rimington Memorial Institute and usually begin at 7.30 pm. A section of the meeting, towards the beginning of the meeting, is open to public participation. Members of the public who wish to speak at any length on a particular issue are requested to contact the Clerk in advance of the meeting.

Reporting of Highways Issues

Parishioners may report faults to the highways such as potholes, flooding, overhanging vegetation or other hazards directly via Lancashire Highways Report It website (link below). There is no need to ask a Parish Councillor to do this; any resident can access the website.

In order to report a matter you will need to know the name of the road where the issue has arisen or the postcode. The reported issue will be allocated a number, which you should retain and the number can then be used to look up on the same website, after a suitable time has elapsed, to see what progress has been made with the issue.
