Stalmine-with-Staynall Parish Council news
Road safety fears
Concerns are growing over road safety on Brickhouse Lane in Stalmine as the number of vehicles using the single-track lane appears to increase.
Parish councillors were planning talks with Cllr John Shedwick, who represents the village on the county council, in response to worries aired by villagers. Councillors have also expressed fears and are calling for an urgent review.
Cllr Shedwick was invited to the council's November meeting, but was unable to attend because of a prior engagement. Talks are now planned for the end of November.
Over Wyre talks
Plans for a get-together of councillors to discuss matters of common interest in Over Wyre are continuing to take shape, with representatives from Hambleton, Out Rawcliffe, Preesall and Pilling joining Stalmine in confirming interest in meeting once or twice a year.
Stalmine councillors have suggested a first meeting in February, with each council asked to bring one item of concern and one idea of proposed improvement. Details of how things would operate in practice would then be agreed at the meeting.
This suggestion will now go to all interested parties.
Grange Lane in Stalmine is to close for three days from January 22 for works to replace a BT pole. This is a county council scheme.
Wardleys Lane in Stalmine is to close on 24.02.20 until 03.03.20 to allow cable installation works to be carried out in the carriageway by Gallagher Ltd on behalf of ENW.
Stalmine's lights will be switched on at the church at 6pm on Monday December 2. Once again, the council is sponsoring the Christmas tree and the band at the church for this year’s event.
Everyone involved with the parish council would like to pass on best wishes for a very merry Christmas and a happy 2020.
