Morecambe & Morgan Wind Farm Transmission Assets – Parliamentary Petition

We had a fabulous turnout at the Parliamentary Petition signing event today outside Newton shop with over 500 people coming out to sign.

We know that some of you couldn’t make it and we will arrange other events and publicise them on our website, our noticeboards and on the village Facebook pages.

We had residents from other parishes attend today and we are actively encouraging other councils to join in the campaign. When we have details of any signing events in neighbouring areas we will share them with you.

   Parliamentary Petition Opposing the Morecambe & Morgan Transmission Assets Scheme    12 December, 2023

PARLIAMENTARY PETITION OPPOSING MORECAMBE & MORGAN’S SCHEME

Mark Menzies MP is planning to present a petition, on behalf of Fylde residents, objecting to the scheme for the Wind Farm Transmission Assets as proposed by Morecambe & Morgan. This petition will be presented in the House of Commons thus registering local opinion in Parliament and on the Hansard Record. This is then visible to the press and to Morecambe & Morgan. To meet parliamentary rules, the petition can ONLY be signed by residents on FYLDE’S ELECTORAL ROLL and they must be wet signatures with no corrections allowed on the sheets.

Consequently, Newton with Clifton Parish Council are launching some public signing events starting on Saturday 16th December 2023 between 10am and 2pm outside the Newton Village Shop. We are encouraging other impacted Parish and Town Councils to organise similar events in their area to maximise the total number of signatures.

Even if you have signed other petitions or sent in objections, it is important for this official record to contain as many signatures as possible so your contribution would be valued.

HAVE YOUR SAY, HAVE YOUR SIGNATURE DELIVERED TO THE HOUSE OF COMMONS BY YOUR MP.

Please feel free to use any or all of this document but please note, it will be more powerful if it is tailored to your specific views and/or circumstances. However we understand everyone is busy and it’s better to input the document as it stands rather than not send in anything.

   Bryning Lane Bus Stop    4 November, 2022

Some of you will, no doubt, be aware that the current bus stop location on Bryning Lane presents a road safety risk. When a bus is stopped, any traffic turning left out of Beech Drive onto Bryning Lane may well meet oncoming traffic trying to overtake the stationary bus. Whilst this is entirely understandable the Parish Council felt it appropriate to raise this risk with Lancashire County Council. In addition, the Parish Council recognise the lack of shelter at this location for bus users during inclement weather.

For these reasons, Lancashire County Council have agreed to move the bus stop on Bryning Lane a little further away from the Beech Drive junction. At the same time they will erect a clear glass bus shelter which will help those residents who regularly catch the bus at this location.

   Reporting Flooding in our Parish    8 November, 2021

Unfortunately many local residents have suffered problems resulting from the recent flooding and, as autumn progresses, we are certain to get more rain and that is possibly going  to mean more incidents of localised flooding.

To increase the chance of these problems being addressed by the utilities company and Lancashire County Council it is important that everyone affected reports each incident. 

Click here to report non-urgent Surface Water Flooding to Lancashire County Council, or call 0300 123 6780 if flood water is entering your house or is over halfway across the road.

Click here to report Sewage flooding in your home or garden to United Utilities, or phone 0345 672 3723.

Given that the older areas of Newton have combined sewers carrying both raw sewage and surface water, it may be that reporting incidents to both authorities is the best way to ensure the appropriate authority is fully aware of the problem.

   Newton park improvements and impact on car parking    15 August, 2021

The Parish Council are pleased to share this latest update from the Friends of Newton Community Park and would like to thank the group for their commitment to the park improvements for the benefit of the whole community.

The work to renovate the play area and the Multi Use Games Area is due to start in the forthcoming weeks and will, inevitably, reduce parking spaces on the car park for the duration of the construction works. On school days this car park usually serves as a safe and convenient place for parents to drop off and collect children, so parents may need to find alternative parking places whilst the improvements are taking place.

You will have noticed a ‘No Overnight Parking’ sign has been erected at the entrance to the car park. The Parish Council request that residents abide by this rule and are considerate to other users or we will need to consider enforcement action.

   Update on a Potential Pond to support habitat for Great Crested Newts?    10 May, 2021

Update on a Potential Pond to support habitat for Great Crested Newts 

In February 2021, following an approach from the Lancashire Wildlife Trust and Fylde Borough Council,  a consultation was launched regarding the creation of  a pond at Newton Hall Park to support habitat for Great Crested Newts and other wildlife.

The Parish Council have reviewed the consultation feedback in detail and consulted with other relevant bodies. In consultation with the Lancashire Wildlife Trust, we have now concluded that the site at the Park is a suitable location. Although the process took longer than initially anticipated, Lancashire Wildlife Trust have confirmed the availability of funding for this financial year.  Consequently the Parish Council have agreed to the creation of a pond at the park as described in the consultation.

Work will commence once the bird nesting season is over – likely August 2021.

   Parking at Newton Bluecoat School at Drop Off and Pick Up Times    6 May, 2021

Message From Lauren Vallely (Police, PCSO, WEST - Freckleton, Warton and Rural Fylde)

We are receiving numerous complaints regarding the manner of vehicles parking outside of schools at school drop off and pick up times.
If you are attending a school to drop off/ collect a child, please ensure you are not double parked, not parking over zig zag lines and are adhering to the parking conditions.

We have the power to remove vehicles that are causing obstructions so please be considerate of the residents in that area and don't park over dropped curbs or block driveways.

All of these factors are in place to protect the safety of the children, other road users and pedestrians.
Vehicles that park in restricted areas can obstruct the vision of children, making it dangerous when they are crossing the road.

Anyone not adhering to the parking restrictions in place can be liable for a fine.

As always, many thanks for your continued support.

   In the Know    30 November, 2020

The local Police email out to local residents regularly via "In The Know".

Their aim is to use this facility as their main contact with the community to keep them informed. For example, if there is a burglary on a particular road, they will send an alert email through In The Know to all residents that are registered in that area to make them aware and to ensure that they secure their properties. The Council and Environmental Services use this facility too, to keep residents aware of what’s going on.

This is proving to be very useful in keeping in touch with the community, especially those that don't have social media, such as the elderly.
