Each month the parish council will post information on key issues and decisions following the monthly meeting
Lancashire County Council's cabinet has agreed proposals to help balance its budget by changing the opening times and days of recycling centres. All 15 Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) will still be open at the busiest times including weekends and bank holidays, but six of the quieter sites will only open 5 days a week. The opening hours of all recycling centres will be changed to 9am - 5pm all year round. Currently they are open from 8am to 7pm in summer, and 8am to 5pm during the winter, however surveys show that visitor numbers are relatively low at either end of the day. The sites at Barnoldswick, Burscough, Carnforth, Clitheroe, Haslingden and Longridge will close two days during the week excluding Friday, as this is often the busiest weekday leading into the weekend. In a change to the original proposals Skelmersdale HWRC will remain open seven days a week. All sites will open on Bank Holidays, even if a facility's normal closure day is a Monday. The changes are due to be implemented from 1 October 2019.
