Knowsley Scrutiny Committee Open to Suggestions

By on Wednesday, April 8, 2015

How do you think Knowsley Council is performing? What issues should it be tackling in Prescot and Whiston?

Knowsley’s Overview and Scrutiny Board wants your ideas on what issues to review over the next year.

According to a council press release, last year’s survey resulted in “examining how the council can attract and deliver investment into the borough’s key business parks and how welfare reform has impacted on residents, particularly those in crisis.”

By law, every local council must have an Overview and Scrutiny Committee, made up of non-executive/cabinet councillors, whose role is to keep cabinet members and council officers accountable.

If you’d like to see Knowsley examining a particular issue, or you have concerns you think the committee should scrutinise, you can contact the Overview and Scrutiny Board in one of three ways:

  • Email
  • Write to Democratic Services, Municipal Buildings, Archway Road, Huyton, L36 9YS
  • Phone 0151 443 3367/3760

    kmbc are not doing anything to stop Whiston Hospital workers parking in residential areas. There are two signs right at the top on posts about 8ft at the top of Hulton Avenue. Definitely not eye level. They are parking half on the path at the bottom of Hulton Avenue and The Crescent. It’s a joke there are no traffic police or wardens to issue tickets. The hospital workers have visiting tickets in there car some of them, well they should go and park outside the house they got given them. This will be my third complaint, when I have rang kmbc they tell me someone will get back to me. Well guess what I’m still waiting.

    Is there any point?

    Whatever we ask for, the residents of Prescot are ignored.

    Now there’s even more houses being built on the site of Scotchbarn baths…where are all these people coming from and more importantly, where are the ‘local’ facilities for them?
    make the most of the next couple of years KMBC, I hear that the Tories are looking to remove boundaries and merge councils…hopefully Knowsley will be top of their hit list.
