Aughton Surgery To Move?

Depending on the outcome of the upcoming Parrs Lane Planning Inquiry, the Aughton Surgery management has instructed Assura HC Limited to act as a third party developer to secure new practice premises. Assura confirmed its interest to WainHomes on 14th November 2017, as the attached letter  shows. It comes as no surprise that a proposed D1 Use for Long Lane might re-emerge after the Aughton Surgery withdrew from the original proposal. But the emergence of a Developers’ map shows the new D1 to be near the corner of Parrs Lane/Prescot Road behind Crossways. Assura seems intent on stating its case for the creation of “New GP premises to enable the practice to meet the demands of modern primary healthcare” and “…serve a patient list size of nearly 6,000 people”. It also cites a “lack of available clinical rooms”, something not immediately obvious to those of us on the practice list. The map indicates that a public footpath link from Prescot Road into the proposed surgery would create a pedestrian road crossing hazard from those living in and around Town Green side, which, combined with current school traffic, will be exceptionally dangerous.

I am a pensioner. I was a strong supporter of the rights of elderly and disabled residents of West Lancashire to receive equal treatment from the old Tory WLBC that unfortunately did not agree, leading to the social exclusion of some immobile disabled residents. My personal suggestion of honouring the County Regiment led to us having probably the proudest day ever in West Lancashire, with the help of Cllr Adrian Owens who wrote "You will be pleased to learn that this evening the motion passed unanimously. Colonel Amlot from the Regiment was accorded a standing ovation and we look forward to a parade and march through Ormskirk next year. Thank you". After the Parade I wrote to Cllr Owens "I was reading through the emails we exchanged after I made the suggestion to honour our County Regiment. As you said today, we got there in the end, and what an end? This celebration of our Regiment was quite simply, as my original mail said, the greatest honour of all. To see all these young people who risk their lives for us was so moving. Little did I know what Council could do and how our residents would react to it all. Well, we should all be so proud of this great day. I know I am".
