September 2014 “West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper has expressed her delight with Lancashire County Council’s commitment to help ease flooding issues within West Lancashire”. £15,000 a year! Probably doesn’t even cover the real 2020 bill for Bernie Webster to clean up his flooded Crabtree Lane home, twice!
November 2014 “Rosie Cooper tells how in 2012 residents were calling one agency and were turned away being told that agency was not responsible. Residents should know who to turn to in their time of need. Flooding poses an ever greater threat to homeowners and landowners and we need to get better at protecting them from flooding and responding better when flooding occurs”.
Dyers Lane residents have had problems in the past, having experienced heavy flooding in 2012 and 2015.
November 2020 “West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper hosted a meeting with residents and the Shadow Environment Secretary Mr Luke Pollard MP to discuss flooding in the constituency and how flood defence can be improved”.
“In light of the continuing flooding issues and flood risk faced by residents, businesses and farmers across West Lancashire, MP Rosie took the opportunity to invite the Shadow Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, to come and speak with residents about the Shadow Team’s campaigns and priorities right now, how they can support places like West Lancashire in securing improvements, and how future Governments could better deal with the current issues we face”.
Funny expression “Shadow Team”? LCC, WLBC, UU, EA, NR, all have these shadow teams. No real people, just dummies, no action, more floods, more to talk about in 2021, 2022, 2023 ad infinitum, you be sure of it!
