A DECISION on whether to demolish a youth shelter plagued by litter and anti-social behaviour is set to be taken tomorrow.

Councillors on Ribble Valley borough’s Community Services Committee are expected to take a final ruling on the future of the structure in Henthorn Road, Clitheroe.

In May the shelter, installed some years ago as part of Lancashire County Council’s youth work programme, was given a stay of execution.

Now council officers have again raised the question of whether to remove it as complaints from nearby residents about litter and anti-social behaviour continue to be received.

Cllr Simon Hore, committee chair, said: “I expect a final decision to be taken at the meeting,

“There are still problems with disruption and litter. It is messy.

“We hope to hear from local councillors about what they think should be done.

“We will then debate it and make up our mind.”

Mark Beveridge, head of the council’s cultural and leisure services, tells councillors: “The issues with the shelter have not gone away and, despite a regular cleaning regime to remove litter, complaints have still been received.”
