The Haslingden Task Force has released its second newsletter for local traders. The report outlines the work that the taskforce is undertaking and the continuing consultation with local traders and other key stakeholders. I'd ask people to keep Sunday 14th September free in their diaries for the Haslingden Street Fair which will be taking place in the town centre in aid of local community and voluntary organisation.
There is also an important section on local parking arrangements and possible proposals for changing the current parking waiting times. In addition, it's crucial that residents and those interested express their views on the public realm changes discussed and the possibility of Haslingden applying for conservation area status.
I'd like to thank Rossendale BC, local traders and volunteers for their work on the task force and for producing the newsletter – I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the future of Haslingden.
