Claughton Parish Council to be closed

First published in News

NOTICE of planned closure of Claughton Parish Council has been served by outgoing clerk Caroline Goleczka.

The parish council had recovered from planned closure a few years ago, which would have resulted in a merger with Hornby with Farleton Parish Council, but has now voted unanimously to close by March 2014.

This decision was based on a lack of local interest and support and the absence of any candidates to fill the vacancies for a clerk and two councillors despite extensive advertising.

Lancaster City Council is advising on the process of closure.

Erm, it isn't possible for a Parish Council to vote to close itself. They have no power to do so.
