RESIDENTS in a Rishton street are being asked to help pay for the resurfacing of their unadopted road.

The surface of Cut Lane has deteriorated and efforts to repair severe potholes are not considered a viable solution by the council, which owns half of it but does not maintain it.

Rishton councillor Ken Moss said: “The other half is technically owned by the residents themselves but the cost of bringing the road up to adoptive standards is in the region of £80,000.

“Hyndburn Council has agreed to fund half the cost of bringing the road up to adoption standards if residents club together,”
