IGHTENHILL: Concern raised about path

PARISH COUNCIL – Ightenhill Parish Council met on Monday and present were: Couns Maria Chattle (chairman), Ferguson, Kayley, Doyle and Mitchell and clerk Roger Frost. Apologies were sent from Couns Bushby and Wilson, County Coun. Briggs and tree warden David Kilpatrick.

PARISH SIGNS – At last month’s meeting, Coun. Mitchell highlighted the condition of the sign in Ightenhill Park Lane. Coun. Ferguson arranged for the sign to be cleaned. The parish council will consider a site in Lakeland Drive for another boundary sign and the borough and county councils will have to be consulted.

YELLOW VESTS – The parish council has decided to supply yellow vests, marked with Ightenhill Parish Council, to those who carry out work on or near busy and narrow roads.

HAGG WOOD – Members remained concerned by the condition of a path in Hagg Wood which is owned by the Woodland Trust. The trust has attempted to gain permission from local landowners for a new path which would bypass the dangerous areas. As yet, no agreement has been reached but the clerk is to arrange a meeting with the trust.

PLANNING APPLICATION – Coun. Ferguson spoke of an application to fell two beech trees at 90 Ightenhill Park Lane. The tree warden has been consulted and the parish council has noted the application, which will be dealt with by Burnley Borough Council.

IGHTENHILL PARK – The Friends of Ightenhill Park is arranging a spring open day at the park for Sunday, May 22nd. There will be a number of attractions for visitors.
