Tim Ashton the Lancashire County Councillor representing Lytham and Ansdell has announced the latest investment for the area today.  He said:

The Budget Council meeting for the County Council has taken place and I’m pleased to report that we have announced the following investments:

£5 million EXTRA for Highways to resurface even more roads this year.
£1 million to refresh white lines and clean street signs across the County.
£1.5 million EXTRA to reinstate more bus routes and work to ensuring the services run in evenings and across the weekend (rising to £3 million next year).
£1 million to secure the future of Helmshore Textile Museum and Queen Street Mill.
A full review of accomodation for care leavers and the beginning of plans to ensure every district in Lancashire has an extra care facility for the most vulnerable.
£500,000 to increase the book fund for our existing libraries (and the ones we have re-opened).
Additional funding for the inclusion service to increase the number of SENDO officers giving more time to spend with families.
Additional funding for our Veteran services.
More money for Parish Councils towards the upkeep of Public Rights of Way.

He also added “This is on top of reducing the significant deficit left by Labour, proposing a balanced budget through to 2023/24 and stopping the need to take money from reserves to fund the budgets. Now that’s progress for Lancashire and every single resident who lives here”.
