Cllr Joanne Gardner's Diary Spring2022


As the weather finally starts to get a little bit warmer, I’d like to wish you all a happy summer.

I have attended the following St Anne’s Town Council meetings and events since my last update: 

  • Blundell Road Allotments - March 9th
  • CAN (Community and Neighbourhood Group) - March 23rd
  • TEN (Town Environment Network) - April 6th
  • Policy and Resources - April 14th
  • Blundell Road Allotments - April 13th
  • CAN (Community and Neighbourhood Group) - April 27th
  • 100th Centenary Presentation of the Lytham St. Annes Charter Day - May 1st
  • Sounds in the Square - May 3rd
  • TEN (Town Environment Network) - May 4th
  • Litter picking in and around Wood Street - May 4th
  • Blackpool Road North Project Team update meeting - May 10th
  • Full Council Meeting May 10th

Residents have made me aware of the following issues, which I have brought to the attention of the relevant Council Officers:

  • The decaying road surface on Kilnhouse Lane.
  • The need for a Pelican/Zebra Crossing on St Anne’s Road East.
  • The need for a 20 mile per hour speed sign on Blackpool Road North (Airport end)
  • Speeding issues across the Ward
  • Fly tipping
  • The removal of a crate from a property on St. Annes Road East
  • A number of uneven pavements

As a member of the CAN (Community and Neighbourhood Group), I was actively involved in the planning for the JUBILEE CARNIVAL celebrations, which took place in Ashton Gardens in early June. It was wonderful to see so many Kilnhouse residents there. I have also joined in with Council Officers delivering brochures regarding all our events and community groups to residents.  It was also fantastic to see how many have been able to attend Sounds in the Square, which see's a number of vocalists perform in the Square every Tuesday from 12pm to 2pm.

As a member of the TEN group I am pleased to see the Wildflowers coming through on the Bridleways at the back of Heyhouses Lane. This group also has a number of other environmental improvement projects coming to fruition. In particular watch out for a number of picnic benches popping up across St Annes!

As to the Blackpool Road North Playing Fields, myself and Cllr Karen Henshaw are overjoyed that the design of the Play Park has finally been agreed and the contractors are now building the elements that will constitute this major renovation which is long overdue.

I continue to represent all your interests on the Town Council and I look forward to giving you another update soon.
