Written evidence submitted by the Fern
Gore Residents Association |
We live in the bb5 area of Accrington, Lancashire
and there has been NO regeneration in this area for many years
either by government or local government.
As a local residents association we have made many
suggestions, all of which seem to have fallen on stony ground.
The only regeneration that we can find in Hyndbyrn
is a small area where older homes have been knocked down to be
replaced by new brick and glass structures that area out of keeping
with the local environment and people.
As stated above we are a local residents association
(Fern-Gore M.B.E.) and are on many local (linked) bodies:
Neighbourhood management, soccer task force, community
centre board, school governors, area council reps, pact group,
green open spaces, N.R.C.V. members of Entrust and run
seven youth football teams and one adult team, and run a small
community wild life area.
and in answer to question 4 NO -nowhere near is being
