Lancashire County Council's household waste recycling centres consultation

New Search

Purpose Lancashire County Council, like many councils across the country, is going through financially challenging times. This is as a result of funding not keeping pace with the increasing demand and cost of services being delivered. We need to continue to look at ways of reducing costs to help balance the books for future years. This means that we have to consider changes to some of the services we currently provide, as we do not have the resources to continue to deliver what we have done in the past. These changes were considered by our county councillors and we are now looking to consult on what impact the proposals may have. We really welcome your views.

We are asking the public, staff and partner organisations to give their views. Printed questionnaires are available on request (please ring 01254 220691), or you can complete an online version by clicking on the link above. Your views and comments will be included in the report Lancashire County Council's Cabinet will consider when making the final decision on these proposals.
