It gives me great pleasure to introduce the Brindle Parish Council website.
The aim of the site is to keep parishioners informed of the Council's activities and proceedings. Also, the site provides an archive of minutes and other Parish Council documents. We will undertake to keep the site up to date and relevant.
The Parish Council Meetings are held about every 6 weeks at 7-
Members of the public can attend so please come along to see what we do for the parish.
We also want to hear your views on the site, the good, the bad, the missing, the irrelevant. Please pass your views to the Webmaster or any Parish Councillor.
The July meeting was attended by one local resident.
The Council congratuated District Councillor David Dickinson on his recent appointment as Deputy Mayor of Chorley.
The Police did not attend. There were no reported crimes for the Parish.
There was little to report on progress with the many outstanding highway and footpath repairs, though LCC had reported that items were repaired in order of priority. However, it was reported that the urgent reairs to Duxon Hill had still not been carried out. The recent installation of new telephones at the Oram road crossing was a safety issue and there was no hidden agenda on the part of Network Rail.
The Clerk reported that there were no planning applications to hand and that two recent applications had been granted.
It was reported that there were an increased number of cylists using the Parish and some safety issues were raised.
The Clerk reported on the recent internal audit of the Council's finances. Persuant to new regulations these reports will now be published on the Parish Councils's website.
The Best Kept Village inspections are now being carried out. The Chairman asked all to be aware of this and to keep the village tidy.
Please view the draft minutes for a full report on the meeting. The next meeting will be atTrinity Methodist Church on August 10th at 7:30pm
