Welcome to the new Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport

With the change in administration at Lancashire County Council following May’s local elections, there is a new person in the post of Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport: Councillor Keith Iddon.  Dynamo has written to Councillor Iddon to welcome him to the post and to enquire about the consultation forums that are mentioned in the draft Cycling and Walking Strategy.

(Cabinet Members can wield considerable power: Councillor Tim Ashton, Mr Iddon’s predecessor-but-one, was responsible for pushing through the introduction of county-wide 20mph speed limits in residential areas. And Councillor John Fillis, the last incumbent, was willing to engage with Dynamo on A6 matters, even if we were disappointed with the outcome.)
