Keeping Residents In Touch

The role of District Councillor has changed dramatically since the year 2000. Government policy and public awareness has meant that Councillors need to be more accountable than ever before to their electorate. Technology has also moved on and in Heyhouses your Conservative Councillors are at the forefront of adopting e-mail alerts, Blogs and Newsletters such as the Heyhouses Harrier to keep you up to date. Our monthly mobile Ward surgeries are also a vital face to face opportunity for residents to keep in touch with us. Finally the Heyhouses Branch committee, made up of volunteers, plays a vital supporting role in campaigning and fund raising. If you would like to play a more active role in your area and would like to become part of the team, then please get in touch. We hope you enjoy the Blog.

Police & Community Together - PACT Meeting 7th Nov 7PM

The next PACT meeting for Heyhouses will take place on November 7 at 7pm at the Pavilion on Hope Street Park.

Local Police Community Safety Officer and Ward Councillors will be in attendance and would welcome members of the public to air their views about community policing matters.

In recent weeks residents from the Ward have contacted Councillors regarding the perceived increase of youth nuisance, drink related disorder and other youth related issues. The PACT meetings are an opportunity for the local community to come together to discuss locals concerns in a relaxed atmosphere.

Your Ward Councillors are keen to gather as much evidence as possible regarding Policing issues in the Ward so that we can ensure that the Police are targetting the right areas with the limited resources they have.

Waddington Park - The Plans Arrive!!

Councillor Hyde's long running quest to see the upgrade of Waddington Park is now nearing a reality!! Keith has been working hard behind the scenes with park designers and the 'Friends of Waddington Park' in developing a plan of what the Park could look like and how and where, external funding can be sought. Working with Lytham Parks Friends Group ParkView4U Keith has now got a masterplan ready to present to Heyhouses Residents.

Keith said ' it has taken a long time to get these plans in place - now the hard work begins! we need over 100,000 pounds in the first instance for drainage of the field then we can start puttign together a facility that all residents, regardless of age, can use and be proud of'

The Friends Group still needs more volunteers!! interested residents should contact Keith.
