Broughton Parish Council has received updated information from Lancashire County Council regarding the ongoing A6 Corridor Works in Broughton Village, as follows:

1. Further to the informal consultation carried out last year, proposals for a Restricted Parking Zone are due to be formally advertised from Friday 22 February 2019. A letter and plan will be sent to residents and businesses within the proposed zone. The proposals have been amended as a result of comments received during the informal consultation to include an additional on-street parking bay. If the parish council has any comments regarding the proposals, they should be submitted by 22 March 2019.

2. Due to the cold weather during early February, the paving works currently taking place at Broughton cross-roads are running approximately two weeks behind schedule. Unfortunately the granite paving flags and setts cannot be laid once the temperature falls below a certain level. As a consequence of this delay, the current closure of Garstang Road north of the cross-roads will remain in place until 22 March 2019. This is two weeks later than the original planned date of 8 March 2019. The contractor will be arranging a letter drop to inform adjacent residents and businesses.
