Hyndburn Centre to close - Response from LCC

The Hyndburn Centre in Accrington is to close. I know its sister building in the Nelson town centre, The Marsden Centre has seen sit in protests.

Clearly County are trying to rationalise resources at Enfield Day Centre. Usually a euphemism for cuts . The County will leave - like with the neighbouring old peoples establishment - an unwanted eyesore in a problematic part of town.

When resources are being withdrawn but also put back in, which is clearly happening it is difficult to quantify whether there is a net benefit or net loss.
