Lifeline services will still run on revised routes and timetables
Lancashire County Council and Chorley Council are working together to ensure that bus services are still available for residents of Astley Village after Stagecoach announced it was withdrawing the 109A after Sunday 21st July. Following this news, Sir. Lindsay Hoyle MP alongside Labour councillors, have lobbied the County Council to highlight the need for this service to continue.
Chorley Council have stepped in to work with the County Council and revisions to bus routes and timetables have been made. Councillor Alistair Bradley, Leader of Chorley Council, said: “We were really disappointed to see the existing bus service was being cut by Stagecoach. Like we have in other parts of the borough we’ve stepped in, alongside the County Council, to make sure the residents in Astley Village can still access Chorley and other parts of the borough by bus. Not everyone has access to a car so it’s really important we do all we can to keep all our villages linked by public transport so people can get to work, get to school and attend appointments.”

New threat to Chorley A&E
The Accident & Emergency unit at Chorley & South Ribble hospital is still under threat
Chorley and South Ribble District Hospital’s Accident and Emergency unit along with acute beds face closure as part of a series of options to be presented by the Our Health Our Care team.
Sir. Lindsay Hoyle MP has called upon the people of Chorley to "have their say" after describing how the closure of Chorley A&E previously, caused huge queues at Royal Preston and other hospitals in the area.
"There are more people in Chorley and South Ribble than in Preston and the population continues to rise. The closure will potentially threaten lives and mark the end of our local hospital."
Chorley Labour will continue to fight for a 24 hour A&E unit at Chorley & South Ribble Hospital.

It is often easier to name a road in Chorley that does not have a pothole. Lancashire County Council are the authority responsible for the state of the roads in Chorley and we believe that they are not doing enough to combat this problem.
When speaking to residents, our councillors and local campaigners frequently hear complaints about the sorry state of Chorley's roads. Not only are potholes uncomfortable to drive over, they can be a potential safety hazard and cause damage to cars (1). Many residents are also concerned about the quality of the "repairs" that LCC are commissioning. We have been alerted of numerous examples where a pothole "repair" has not lasted and the road surface is as poor, if not worse than it was previously.
