Birkdale’s Councillor Simon Shaw, together with fellow
Southport councillors, are meeting senior Council officers this Wednesday. They plan to get answers from the Council as to why there has been such poor performance locally in clearing main roads and town centre pavements of snow and ice.
“The absolute priority throughout has been trying to get effective Council action on the ground,” explains Simon. “The last thing we wanted to do was to divert key officers from doing their job in the run-up to Christmas by having a Town Hall meeting too soon.”
“That’s why we have delayed having this crucial meeting until the first day back after the bank holiday break. We’ll be demanding explanations as to why things have clearly gone so badly wrong. As the problems affect all parts of our town I have asked local Conservative councillors if they would like to attend as well as Lib Dems. I am keen for all wards to be represented. On a cross-party basis, we all want some urgent answers.”
Simon and his colleagues have a comprehensive list of questions they want answering on behalf of residents. Please forward any issues you would like raised to Simon at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday. Please include your name and address.
