West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said:
“I have always supported the idea and think it would be great to have a town council for Skelmersdale to look after the interests of the town’s residents, especially now that the town is on the verge of new developments with Skelmersdale Vision.”
“We know that other areas of West Lancashire benefit from having Parish Councils that work in the best interest of their own area. So in principle why should our towns, like Skelmersdale and Ormskirk, not have the same benefits.
“Ultimately, it is up to the people of Skelmersdale to make the decision of whether they want a Parish or town council for their community by choosing to sign this petition or not.”
