Hough Lane
Leyland traders feel 'short changed'

They were part of a promised new look costing £4.25m, but ended up with a £200,000 facelift.

Now traders in Leyland's Hough Lane say it's time for the talking to stop and the action to begin.

It was back in 2008 that South Ribble Council unveiled plans for a multi-million regeneration of Leyland.

However, since then traders say that the only thing that's happened has been minor 'cosmetic work' like replacing furniture and general maintenance.

Helen Pilkington, from Brian Pilkington Estate Agents said: "It just comes down to funding at the end of the day.

"As a business owner on Hough Lane, we're paying a lot of rates and sometimes you just want something back. I'm an office rather than a retailer so it is different for me, but I work and live in the town so can see what's happening."
