The Council are in the process of installing a sewage treatment plant at the Memorial Hall in order to comply with new Environment Agency regulations.
This is being funded with The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), which was introduced by West Lancashire Borough Council in 2015; the Levy imposes a charge on certain new developments, based on the size of the properties being built. This is designated to underwrite the cost of improving the infrastructure within the Borough necessitated by such development.
The Parish Council receives 15% of this Levy for developments carried out within its own Parish.
