Bretherton Parish Council
The local MP has agreed to re institute the surgeries that used to take place regularly in the village when Lyndsey Hoyle was our MP. Seema Kennedy is planning to hold these two or three times a year.
The venue and time are now confirmed for the first surgery of 2016. It will take place on Friday 8th January 2016 2pm - 3:30pm in the Village Institute.
Traffic Transportation and Environment Questionnaire
In 2012, the Parish Council decided that a Village Plan should be prepared for Bretherton. Its purpose being to provide a means through which residents ideas and proposals for the future of Bretherton, could be made known, articulated and argued for with Chorley Borough Council, Lancashire County Council and any other body which might have some formal interest in the village.
To achieve the Village Plan it was considered that ideas and proposals would best be obtained through two questionnaires. The first questionnaire which looked at Development and Housing was circulated in 2013 with a report on the responses being provided in the Christmas 2013 edition of the Parish Council News Letter.
The second questionnaire, on the matters of traffic and transport, amended to include the environment, takes the form of a number of ideas and proposals of the Parish Council, on which you are requested to indicate your agreement or disagreement. This questionnaire will accompany your Autumn newsletter.
Please do complete and return the questionnaire to one of your Parish Councillors, for only by doing so can the Parish Council fully understand and appreciate the views of villagers and through this ensure that it is representing you.
LAST DATE FOR RETURN OF THE QUESTIONNAIRE 31st JANUARY 2016. If you have lost your copy email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a copy.

PACT Meetings (POLICE AND COMMUNITIES TOGETHER)
There have not been any PACT meetings in the Rural West Parishes (Bretherton, Mawdesley, Ulnes Walton, Eccleston, Croston, Charnock Richard and Heskin) for a while as the team felt that they were not getting enough input from members of the public. It was decided to discontinue PACT meetings for these parishes partly to free up time the PCSOs could be on patrol. If any members of the public wish to see the team with any questions or issues, Coppull Police Station (where they are based) is open every Wednesday from 17:00-19:00hrs. The PCSO for our area is Maria Featherstone.
The team have facebook and twitter sessions instead where they are online to answer questions, (however obscure they may be).
The links to these forums are: www.facebook.com/chorleypolice
