Responding to the news of Skelmersdale Town Centre securing planning permission, West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said:
“I’m absolutely delighted that the planning permission for the redevelopment of the town centre has been secured at long last.
“I understand that St Modwen are saying there is a ‘long way to go’. My message to them is that it is time to get on with delivering this scheme. If they are committed to developing Skelmersdale then we need to see some definite timescales. The people of Skelmersdale have waited long enough.
“I grow increasingly frustrated by the lack of urgency and the speed of progress on this scheme. I’ve spoken of developing a future for Skelmersdale for the next 50 years. I won’t let it take 50 years to deliver.”
