Labour Statement On Parrs Lane

The Leader of the West Lancashire Borough Council Cllr Ian Moran, and Cllr John Hodson johnhod Planning Portfolio Holder, have spoken about Parrs Lane in Aughton.

“The Labour Group shares the absolute and utter disappointment of the residents of Aughton and West Lancashire following the decision by the Government’s Planning Inspector to allow the Parrs Lane appeal, as the loophole in the Tory Government’s National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) allows them to do within the provisions of paragraph 49.

“Given that the adopted Local Plan was put in place by the previous Tory administration under a Tory-led Coalition Government the blame for this lies squarely with the Conservatives at West Lancashire and at Government levels.

“Crocodile tears from Cllrs Westley and O’Toole offer scant comfort to the residents of Aughton and West Lancashire, it is now left to the Labour Administration to clear up the mess and try to redress the issues in the next forthcoming Local Plan which is due to start in September and looking to be completed in 2020”.
