12 Scrutiny Panel
12.1. Town Centres
A Scrutiny Panel has been set up to look at how we use our town centres. It
wants to know whether creative plans can be developed to bring people back
into these central areas to recreate lost vitality. It is aware that there is already
a significant amount of activity via the Town Centres Team, especially in
Barnoldswick, Colne and Nelson in view of recent successful funding bids.
Panel members would however appreciate input from the parish and town
councils on any issues they believe remain to be addressed either in respect
of specific town centres or more generally.
12.2. Countryside Access:
Another panel has been set up to look at the Countryside Access service
which we provide on behalf of the County Council. This is the service which
maintains the public rights of way, i.e. footpaths, bridleways etc. The County
Council provides a grant to fund this service but Pendle Council has always
provided additional funding in order to deliver an enhanced level of service.
The Panel is considering whether, in the current economic climate, this
arrangement represents value for money and is inviting feedback from
interested organisations. Your Council is therefore invited to submit its views
so that the panel can take these into account.
13. Small Project Grant Applications (Attached) / Financial Requests
To consider applications received since the last meeting of the Council.
a) Valley Gardens Working Group £400 (Deferred from the last meeting)
14. Remembrance Sunday
To note the arrangements and to approve expenditure on a wreath and
15. Correspondence / Items of information (For Information only)

and or correspondence received.
