https://www.ribblevalley.gov.uk/planx_downloads/21_0119_Scoping_Report.pdf

The parish council will look at these proposals at their meeting next week. If there are any comments you would like to make please let Sandra know. Whilst we are able to make comments on the appraisal the parish council are not formally being consulted by the council at this stage.

The main reason for this addendum to the previous scoping request in 2019 is due to the introduction of a new haul route around Waddington.

To save any confusion our PC meeting due tonight has been postponed until next Wednesday 17th Feb, so if you have any comments on this or any other item please let Sandra know so that they can be placed on the agenda

PARISH COUNCIL MEETING

The next meeting for Newton Parish Council will be held on Wednesday 10th February at 7.30pm via Microsoft Teams.

If there is anything you would like adding to the agenda please let the clerk know by Saturday 6th Feb, this can include anything to do with the parish whether it is the upcoming HARP project proposed by UU, the state of the roads, gritting, public footpaths etc.

As always these meetings are open to the public so If you would like to sit in on the meeting please let Sandra know and a link will be sent.
