Community governance review of parish and town councils

Message from Knowsley Council

There’s still time for you to have your say on the consultation around the community governance review of parish and town councils.

Following a review of Knowsley’s wards by the Boundary Commission, a number of changes were introduced in May 2016 – these were a reduction in the number of wards from 21 wards to 15 wards and a reduction in the number of Councillors from 63 to 45.

Whilst the Commission did not carry out a review of the parish or town councils in the borough, they did agree some changes which amended the warding arrangements of each of the town councils of Halewood, Knowsley, Prescot and Whiston. The changes to the town councils’ warding arrangements will come into effect in May 2019.

In view of the forthcoming changes to the town councils’ warding arrangements, Knowsley Council agreed at a full Council meeting on Wednesday, 20 September 2017 to carry out a community governance review of the existing parish and town councils within the borough.

You can read more about the governance review and how to have your say by visiting the council’s website.  The closing date for the first round of consultation is 10 November 2017.

Cronton Pathways

Autumn Clean-Up 10th November 2017
Thanks to the volunteers (Terry, Emma, Steve, Linda, Dave, Pauline, Peter & Bess) who came to the Clean-up today. We managed to collect 22 bags of rubbish from Penny Lane, Cronton Road, The Pasture, Hall Lane, Mill Lane, Chapel Lane, Sandy Lane and most of the roads within the village. Knowsley MBC removed them all promptly, for which we are grateful. At the same time KMBC were tidying up Coronation Gardens and road-sweeping the accumulation of leaves. Cronton Garden Centre staff were also working on the block paving near the Cenotaph as part of the Environment Project. The village is looking very smart now. Let’s hope it will last.

We want to hear your views about the Liverpool City Region Rights of Way Improvement Plan (2018-2028).

Public Rights of Way are routes over which the public have a “right of passage”. They exist as public highways providing the public with a right to use a defined route to travel from one place to another. These rights of way are both a significant part of our heritage and a major recreational resource. They enable people to get away from roads used mainly by motor vehicles and enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the countryside within a large area of the Liverpool City Region, to which they would not otherwise have access.

The consultation for the Liverpool City Region Rights of Way Improvement Plan is now underway. This joint plan has been prepared by the six LCR local authorities and Merseytravel on behalf of the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority to improve the local network of public rights of way for everyone to use.

All comments received will be considered before the final plan is prepared and published. The consultation period will end on 29 September 2017.
