Visitors to Rossendale's STAN van drop
3:19pm Tuesday 17th September 2013 in News
VISITORS to Rossendale Council’s community information van STAN dropped by 40 per cent last year.
STAN – services to a neighbourhood – is intended to make it easier for residents to get information, advice and access to services in the borough.
The number of people using the service dropped from 860 in 2011/12 to 510 in 2012/13.
A report to the council’s cabinet said the difference was partly down to two special weekend events held in June and September 2011 that bolstered user numbers.
The 2012/13 figure of 510 users was higher than those using the same service in Pendle (429) and Ribble Valley (153).
