A resident of Burscough writes about independent action against flooding
“We must have more representatives in Burscough from the OWL group. We as residents are being given the run around by WLBC, LCC and United Utilities over the new housing, flooding, and promised a new improved drainage system.
“All these authorities are playing games with our flooding group who for some unknown reason are not recognised, especially by United Utilities.
“To anyone out of our area let me say who in their right mind builds a massive big pond to take flooding in the middle of a brand new housing estate, with houses costing £350,000 and more.
“This all built on precious Green belt land, land we may need for food production in future years. We need the Our West Lancashire group, as both the Labour and Tories lack transparency and do anything but fight our cause. All we’re looking for is to be treated with respect, fairly and listened to”.
