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 January meeting was attended by several residents.The Chairman was away in warmer climes so the Vice-Chairman took the chair.
The Council congratuated Councillor Sharatt on his recent appointment as an Honorary Alderman of the County Council in recognition of his 32 years of public service.
The Council wished District Councillor David Dickinson a speedy recovery.
The Police did not attend. Only one crime was reported for Brindle, that of the theft of a car part. The Police, at the last PACT meeting, had urged people to secure their sheds and outbuildings due to a recent surge in thefts from unsecured premises.
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. The Vice-Chairman reported that he had installed a foootpath finger post on Windmill Lane. The finger post had been supplied by LCC and was of a new type made from recycled plastic.
The Clerk reported that he appeared not to be receiving updates on planning matters from Chorley Council.This would be investigated. The Parish Council heard of no new planning decisions.
It was reported that sections of railings were missing on Holt Lane, it was resolved to inform LCC.
Chinese Lanterns had previously been considered at last September's meeting. Councillor Sharatt reported that a new industry code of conduct had now been issued. The Council hoped that this code would be adherred to by all parties.
Please view the draft minutes for a full report on the meeting.
