Cllr Joanne Gardner had a tremendous response from the residents of Lytham St Annes for her call to reject Lancashire County Council's proposal for the introduction of parking charges on the Prom, and also collected over 350 signatures in just 8 days, which was absolutely fantastic!
The petition was sent to LCC on the 20th November 2020 and is now with the officer responsible for the proposal to be taken into consideration during the review.
At a meeting of LCC highways officials, it was reported that there had been “an unbelievable number of comments and feedback” to the parking proposals along St Annes Promenade, and that “nothing will be done in the immediate future” as they will need to spend a significant amount of time reading and assessing all the responses submitted.
Indeed, it has recently been reported that the total number of responses to the proposal had approached 600!
The proposal is currently due to be decided upon at the LCC Cabinet meeting on Thursday 10th June at 2PM.
We will of course be keeping a close eye on proceedings, and will keep you informed of any developments!
