Parish Council Meetings resume in June via Zoom

We will be having remote meetings via Zoom from June 9th 2020.

For more details and how to take part please click here.

The Government have now issued the regulations that give local authorities greater flexibility in the conduct of meetings, including allowing members to attend remotely, and for public and press access to those meetings. These ‘Regulations’ (The Local Authorities and Police and Crime Panels (Coronavirus) (Flexibility of Local Authority and Police and Crime Panel Meetings) (England and Wales) Regulations 2020) came into force on 4 April 2020.

The next meeting of Downholland Parish Council will therefore take place on Tuesday 9th June 2020 at 7.30 pm using ZOOM and the agenda will be published on the website downhollandpc.org.uk at least 3 clear working days before the meeting is due to be held.

Community Skip in Haskayne

 Wednesday 13th May 2020, from 9.30am until 2pm

Parish Council Chair Mike Wainwright and Lancashire County Councillor David O’Toole have arranged with West Lancs to get a community skip on the car park next to the park on Wednesday 13th May 2020, from 9.30am until 2pm…

” From : https://www.westlancs.gov.uk/more/emergencies/coronavirus/waste-and-recycling/community-skips.aspx

Don’t tip it, Skip it! With many of us spending more time at home this can often mean we have more waste. We are providing community skips in different areas on different days between 9.30am and 2pm to help residents dispose of some excess rubbish to prevent fly-tipping as Lancashire County Council has closed the household waste recycling centres.

These skips are for all residents, not businesses, and are for getting rid of excess domestic waste and small amounts of garden waste rather than furniture or other large items. Please remember the whole community needs to use these skips when thinking about how much rubbish to dispose of in them. The following specific items cannot be put in the skips: oil, paint, tyres, fridges, freezers, gas bottles, asbestos.

Anyone who has large items to dispose of can use our bulky household waste collection service. We are sorry but this service can only currently be booked online.

Please stay safe when bringing waste to the skips and remember government social distancing guidelines. Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times.  Residents will be expected to put rubbish in the skips themselves.

Items that CANNOT be disposed of in the skips are:

  • Oil
  • Paint
  • Tyres
  • Fridges
  • Freezers
  • Gas Bottles
  • Asbestos
  • Trade waste
  • Commercial waste
