Press statement from Our West Lancashire

Our West Lancashire, who have been saying since last August that the local plan proposals were ill-conceived and should be halted, have welcomed the news that the Labour-run Council will go back to the drawing board on the Local Plan.

Cllr Adrian Owens said, “Labour will paint themselves as ‘responsive to local concerns’ in light of this U-turn, but we would remind residents that these ‘preferred options’ were put together in secrecy by the Labour leadership. This failed scheme has now been abandoned, at great expense (up to £300k and counting), when faced with a rout at the ballot box. Residents should use their vote in the local elections in May to really force a change of direction from WLBC and despatch their out of touch representatives post haste.”
