Rosie Cooper MP has successfully fought to ensure that the long-standing issue of road and sewer maintenance on Maplewood, Skelmersdale has been resolved with United Utilities now agreeing to adopt the sewers following a recent site review.

Rosie said: “Now that United Utilities have agreed to adopt the maintenance of these sewers I would hope that Lancashire County Council swiftly take steps to adopt the roads and footpaths in Maplewood so that residents can see some improvements to what are currently unacceptable standards in the maintenance and cleanliness of much used public pathways and local roadways”.

The developer of the estate on Maplewood, J J Stock had gone into liquidation leaving 36 properties and their residents unsure as to who had maintenance responsibilities for the roads and public pathways surrounding their estate. Lancashire County Council, who have responsibility for the adoption of new roads and pathways were reluctant to proceed in this case until the drainage system for the estate was adopted by the local water company.
