Blackpool North & Cleveleys MP, Paul Maynard was joined today by highway bosses from both Blackpool & Lancashire councils to conduct a survey of pavements in and around Wood Green Drive and Fir Tree Place area of Blackpool.  The area has a zigzagging boundary between Blackpool and neighbouring highways Authority, Lancashire and Paul was keen to ensure co-operations between the councils.  As well as talking about co-operation, Paul wanted to highlight the cracked pavements, trip hazards and weeds growing through the gaps.

Paul says, “Several weeks ago, as part of my regular street surgery, a number of residents came out an spoke to me about the condition of the pavements.  I wanted the council offices to see at first hand the condition and to also check that Lancashire and Blackpool talk and co-operate with each other as the boundary around that part of the Constituency is very confusing. 

The survey was successful in as much at it confirmed good co-operation, several trip hazards were identified with appropriate action promised and the local residents were able to raise their concerns directly. I am grateful for the time everyone took out of their day to come and see local residents concerns directly”

Paul spends about an hour on a Saturday conducting a street surgery in local areas.  From this week, Paul will be doing surgeries in the Bourne Ward area of Thornton.  Residents will receive a leaflet about a week before informing them of where Paul will be standing and at what time.  Residents are then able to come out and talk to Paul about any issue that they want to.
