Why it's our job to hold the Labour council to account

Holding Labour to account on Chorley Council is an important role for us.  It's even more important for Chorley's taxpayers too; a council needs challenge at every stage.

Over the first 2 years of the flower show, Chorley's Labour Council has hired a popular dance troupe as entertainment at Chorley Flower show. In 2015 they paid the troupe £3,000 and in 2016, £3,300.

Campaigner Peter Malpas carefully follows council spending and  shed light on this and other high-ticket spending, and last year Chorley Council paid the same troupe £2,000, a win for Chorley's hardworking taxpayers.

Councillor Alan Cullens, opposition leader, commented  'As the Council is spending your money we must ensure that they always get best value. Only by continuing to monitor spending and highlighting it can we protect what you have worked hard for.'
