Responding to the High court ruling on the judicial review brought against the planning permission granted for the redevelopment of Skelmersdale town centre, West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said:

“The owners of the Concourse have fought tooth and nail to protect their own interests at the expense of Skelmersdale’s interests for far too long. The High Court ruling is a victory for the future of the town of Skelmersdale and its residents.

“There can be no more excuses, no more delays. I, like the people of Skelmersdale, now expect the promise of a new town centre to finally be delivered.

“I am looking forward to the town centre partnership of West Lancashire Borough Council, Homes and Communities Agency and St Modwen working together to drive the delivery of this long-awaited project.

“I have already written to St Modwen to seek clarification on their timescales for getting on site and making their plans a reality at last. I expect to see diggers at work soon after the New Year.

“I look forward to a twenty-first century town that Skelmersdale residents deserve.”

West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper has dropped by to support Tesco Burscough’s Neighbourhood Food Collection to help support those most in need this Christmas.

The annual winter food drive takes place between 1st and 3rd December. Working in partnership with the FareShare and Trussell Trust charities, Tesco customers can kindly donate long-life food to help people in need.

Tesco tops up customers donations by 20%. Since collections began in 2012, this is the ninth collection with Tesco donating over 38 million meals.

MP Rosie said:
“The kind and generous donations made by West Lancashire shoppers, Tesco staff and Tesco themselves are a lifeline for so many others. Every can and meal donated will make a real difference, especially at this time of year.

“Thank you to everyone who donated and to Tesco for their support in collecting the food and topping up all these donations.”

Lindsey Crompton, Head of Community at Tesco, said:
“The generosity of our customers every time we run the Neighbourhood Food Collection is outstanding. This is now our ninth collection and we want to once again support as many people in need across the UK this Christmas.”

Tesco also has over 600 permanent collection points across the country where customers can donate food each week.

West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper is encouraging council tenants to apply for the tenancy insurance policy to protect their homes from threats such as flooding now the IT system is up and running.

In July, MP Rosie raised concerns with West Lancashire Borough Council after constituents complained the council were not accepting new applications for the insurance policy due to technical problems.

Now those IT issues have been resolved, MP Rosie wants council tenants to apply to ensure their homes are properly insured, especially with the cold and wet weather closing in.

MP Rosie said:
“As we have seen with the 2015 Boxing Day floods and in June this year, we don’t know when incidents will hit people’s homes causing serious damage.

“It is it important council tenants have adequate and appropriate insurance so they are properly protected. Now the IT issues have been fixed residents should contact the Borough Council and take out this insurance policy if they need it.”
