Residents' Petition

Residents groups have been formed in Galgate, Burrow and Scotforth, with Galgate Community Action Group now (August 2017) having 336 members.  We drew up a petition which was signed by nearly 400 residents from Galgate, Bailrigg and Burrow and presented to a meeting of Lancaster City Council in April.  


Councils are obliged to debate petitions with this high number of signatures, but for legal reasons the Council decided to defer this debate until December 2017, when the draft local plan is due to be debated.



 In the meantime our thanks to those who organised the petition, to everyone who went around knocking on doors to collect signatures for it and to everyone who signed - you’ve already made a real difference by bringing our objections to the attention of the whole city council.
