RIBBLE Valley MP Nigel Evans welcomed residents from across the Ribble Valley to Parliament to discuss their concerns with the planning minister, Nick Boles MP.

The deputy speaker of the House of Commons was joined by Coun. Stuart Hirst, deputy leader of Ribble Valley Borough Council and Coun. Terry Hill, chairman of the council’s planning committee.

Speaking from Westminster, Mr Evans said: “I was so pleased that the minister agreed to meet the delegation from across the Ribble Valley, including representatives from Clitheroe, Whalley and Barrow.

“It came as no surprise to me just how well equipped and knowledgeable the residents’ groups were. During a meeting lasting over an hour all present were given the opportunity to put their views across to the minister.

“I was particularly pleased that the minister agreed to come up to the Ribble Valley to see for himself the areas we discussed during the meeting.”
