Ribchester war memorial plans to be discussed by Ribble Valley Council
4:47pm Tuesday 3rd September 2013 in News
RIBBLE Valley Council has received a proposal from Ribchester Parish Council for a war memorial.
The plans are set to be discussed at a meeting of the community services committee at the town hall in Clitheroe tonight. It is hoped the memorial will be built at the rear of the Greenside Car Park in time for the 100th anniversary of the First World War.
Chris Hughes, head of cultural and leisure services at the borough council, said in a report: “The construction of the war memorial will require planning permission and because of its proximity to the area as a scheduled ancient monument.
“The car park at Greenside is also next to an open space owned by ourselves.
“Although there is no formal play equipment on the site, it is used by young people and families for recreational purposes.”
