Planning applications
Route 1 – No. 3/2021/0660
Route 2 – No. 3/2021/0661

Route 1 – is the original route proposed by United Utilities, which sends heavy goods traffic through Chatburn to Newton in Bowland via Pimlico Road, Clitheroe Road, Crowtrees Brow, Ribble Lane, East View, West Bradford and Waddington.

It is important that you are aware of the implications that this will have on all residents.
• heavy goods traffic movements between 5 &10 per hour five days a week (may increase to 13) with a reduced number over weekends. This will continue for at least 6 years until completion of the project.
• a lack of parking facilities for shops and business will lead to their viability being seriously compromised.
• restricted parking for residents
• serious disruption to local and school buses and car users.
• constant HGV emissions and noise detrimental to the environment

Route 2 – Your Parish Council met with representatives from United Utilities and proposed an alternative route avoiding Chatburn, West Bradford and part of Waddington. This route would be via Pimlico Road with a new bridge and a temporary road across the fields joining the West Bradford to Waddington Road west of the Primary School.

Both applications have been submitted to Ribble Valley Borough Council and this is your opportunity to respond expressing your views.
