    Tempers flared recently over roadworks on Lordsgate Lane, Burscough - so much so that QLocal believes police were called to calm down the situation.

    To be fair Crompton Developments have done a great job in reinstating the carriageway and pavements; this reader's letter and exclusive pics. from local parish councillor Brian Bailey 'fill in' the story's background (awful pun...)

    Dear Sir,

    Since late February/early March, residents of Lordsgate Lane, Burscough have suffered disruption, noise and dust from the installation of a new electricity supply line for a business park being developed by Crompton Developments, with contractors working on their behalf being UK Power Solutions.

    During this period, apart from the aforementioned problems, residents have also been subjected to rats being disturbed due to the work, inaccessible driveways and abuse from the contractors operatives.

    It has all been compounded by the lockdown and the fact that the majority were at home during working hours.

    Concern has been raised on two counts with West Lancs. Borough Council:-

    1. The rat problem. The Environmental Health Department denied any responsibility and referred the resident to Burscough Town Council
    2. l approached the four Burscough borough councillors to investigate why this supply line had been routed through a residential area and only one responded. The answer was, and this was an officer's reply, that again it is not WLBC's responsibility but that of LCC highways. If that is the case then our County Councillor, who is also a Borough Councillor and a planning committee member, should have been aware of the problem but appears to have done nothing about it!

    So we have the old problem of "passing the buck" on a situation through which residents have suffered four months of torment, with absolutely no benefit to themselves, due to what is possibly an agreed route within the planning consent for the Business Park Development.

    Stay Safe.

    Regards,
    Cllr.Brian Bailey
