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.
Fly tipping continues to be a problem within the Parish as this latest example from Duxon Hill shows. Thanks to Chorley Council for their prompt action in resolving the issue
The March meeting of the Parish Council was held at Brindle Community Centre on the 25th of March.
The Chairman, on behalf of the Parish Council, thanked farmers in the parish who had cleared the snow drifts from local roads during the recent bad weather. This had kept traffic moving and had been of great benefit to many local residents.
The Police were unable to attend the meeting due to operational priorities. No crimes had been recorded during February. The "In The Know" newsletter was now being produced again, please see the Police website or click here
The Council heard reports on various Highway issues including that various gullies on Marsh Lane, Hillhouse Lane and Gowans Lane were still blocked, Duxon Hill had now been swept and was scheduled to be resurfaced. County Councillor Devaney had investigated the problems in the ginnel between Sandy Lane and Smithy Close, he felt that the best option would be to re-tarmac the surface.
The Parish Council considered a complaint from a resident about ongoing damage to soft verges at Top o'th'Lane, Holt Lane and Pippin Street. The Parish Council felt that this was common throughout rural areas and that there was little that could be done by the Parish Council except to refer the issue to the LCC.
Dog fouling on the path alongside Brindle Mill had been refered to the Neighbourhood Officer and he had erected "No Dog Fouliing" signs. The Parish Council resolved to request a permanent dog litter bin from Chorley Council.
A surplus grit bin has been relocated from Gowans Lane to Marsh Lane/Breworth Fold. Councillor Baldwin was thanked for his assistance in this matter. The poor state of the footpath at Brindle Lodge was discussed and the Clerk reported that a scheme was currently being drawn up by LCC to improve the situation.
On planning matters the Council had received 4 applications which were duly considered.
The Chairman reported that as a consequence of the recent Litter Bin Project that a larger bin with a lid had been provided a Denham Quarry.
