Colne sheltered housing campaign victory
3:43pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
A CAMPAIGN to improve access to a sheltered housing complex in Colne town centre has scored two victories.
Pendle MP Andrew Stephenson was asked by residents of Turney Crook Mews, on Ivegate, to attempt to reach the main road using a walking frame.
Senior citizens were concerned because of the steep access to the mews properties and their worries were raised by Mr Stephenson with the borough and county councils.
Borough engineers are about to fit a hand-rail at the car park next to the complex on Windy Bank.
And county council officials have said the uneven pavement leading to the close should be relaid.
Mr Stephenson said: “I’m happy that at last we’ve been able to get something agreed here.
“It’s been a long-running issue for these residents, and it is important that they are able to get out and about rather than being stuck at home.
“I will be keeping up the pressure on both council to ensure the improvements are made as soon as possible.”
