Councillors back sports club plans

AMBITIOUS plans to fence off and build turnstiles and floodlights at Garstang’s Riverside sports area have won the backing of the town council.

Councillors had no objections to the project when the plans were put forward at Monday night’s town council meeting.

Couns Lady Dulcie Atkins, David Williams and Graham Salisbury declared interests and didn’t vote but the remaining town councillors voted unanimously in favour of the scheme.

Wyre Borough Council’s planning committee will make a final decision on the plans shortly.
