West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said:
“Publication of this book marking the 50th anniversary of the first brick laid for Skelmersdale new town should be a motivation for West Lancashire Borough Council and St Modwen to get moving with delivering the redevelopment of the town centre the people of Skelmersdale were promised in 2006.
“Time is quickly ticking by on this 15 year deal. The town and the people of Skelmersdale have given a considerable amount, certainly in terms of public land, and it is time they got their town centre they were promised.
“In the coming weeks I will be holding the next Skelmersdale Summit meeting with West Lancashire Borough Council, St Modwen and the Homes and Communities Agency to discuss the detail of the project”
