Being Labour, Breaking News, Planning applications

Brilliant work, Bob and Nicki

Let’s make one thing crystal clear about the £800,000 secured for council housing on Elmstead in Tanhouse Ward, which will result in 17 new housing units and use council rents productively to match to the grant.

This is a victory for Cllr Bob Pendleton and Cllr Nicki Hennessy.  They have driven this application to the Labour government council housing fund, supported by decent officers.

Whatever credit The tories will now seek to take, it is nothing to do with them, not their initiative. 

They are the ones who tried to SELL OFF council housing, and Labour and West Lancashire residents stopped them.  The local Tories, like their national masters, are interested in cuts, not investment.

That clear enough for you?
