Rainhill Village Life - Supported by your Labour Councillors

Friday, November 25, 2005


Your local councillors have been approached several times lately over the inconsiderate parking outside Whiston Hospital. Since the start of work on the new build, things have become intolerable. Many residents bordering on the old Maternity Block are suffering from hospital visitors parking across their drives and even stopping the refuse disposal workers from emptying their wheelie bins.

One resident claimed it was only a matter of time before there was a serious accident. We have put together an action plan with the residents and a petition of over 100 signatures and individual letters was handed to Cllr. Alma Atherton, who is the Executive Member responsible for these matters.

The residents were then asked to come into St Helens Town Hall, and they were able to air all their concerns to the appropriate council officers. Various ideas were discussed and a plan of action was agreed. The council are to carry out an in-depth study of the whole area before proposing any possible solutions. The three local councillors are liaising with Whiston Hospital and the Primary Care Trust, the local residents and the officers of the council to ensure that all parties are kept informed of any developments.

A deputation of local residents were photographed handing over the letters and petition to Cllr Atherton. Cllrs. Glover, DeAsha and Doyle were also present. Posted by Picasa
