    ROSIE COOPER MP SECURES GULLY CLEARANCE ON CRABTREE LANE

    Immediate release: Tuesday 15September

    West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper has secured action from Lancashire County Council who have confirmed its inspection and clearance of highway drainage on Crabtree Lane, Burscough.

    Following the August storms, many residents suffered flooding at their properties on Crabtree Lane, and contacted the MP for her support in getting action from the responsible agencies.

    MP Rosie has written to all agencies involved with flooding including Lancashire County Council (who are both the local Lead Flood Authority and the local Highways Authority), West Lancashire Borough Council, United Utilities, Network Rail and the Environment Agency. She has also written to the Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to highlight the issues at Crabtree Lane and call for action to resolve the problems.

    In pursuing the cases, LCC have responded to confirm they have now inspected the highway drainage on Crabtree Lane, identifying and clearing a blockage in the culvert near the properties, and everything is now running clear.

    West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper commented: “I am pleased that Lancashire County Council have come and inspected their drainage and in doing so found a blockage which they subsequently cleared to allow water to now flow freely through drains on Crabtree Lane.

    “However, I and local residents remain frustrated that this inspection and clearance is only done as a reaction to properties having been flooded.

    “I have further written to Lancashire County Council asking when the last time they came to inspect, and to increase the frequency of their inspection schedule especially in areas of previous flooding.

    “Homes cannot be allowed to flood while the drains outside their properties which could alleviate some of that pressure are blocked.

    “I accept that this one drain won’t resolve all the flooding issues across Burscough or even across all the properties on Crabtree Lane, but at the very least it will afford some homes protection some of the time, or at least buy residents time to enact their flood defence measures.

    “I continue to correspond with the agencies and specifically LCC and Network Rail about the management and maintenance of culverts running under the rail line, to ensure that these are operating effectively to add further flood alleviation to the area.”
