Bob Foster - Candidate for Tarleton Parish Council

Dear Residents of Tarleton,

I live locally with my wife Pauline and we have three sons Stephen, Matthew and Martin. We have lived locally for 37 years and I am currently employed by WLDC as many people know, when they see me on the highways and byways. I am a member of the West Lancs Ramblers and am familiar with all the Public Footpaths in the ward. I am also a member of Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, RSPB and Friends of Mere Sands Nature Reserve.

Tarleton is fortunate in having recently adopted a Village Plan, which gives a structured approach towards tackling some of the problems we face as a community. The lack of any such plan over the past 20 years or so is what led to these problems arising in the first place. The Village Plan won’t cure everything overnight - there is no such thing as an ‘instant solution’ but I certainly feel that it is the best approach and I look forward to working as a team on the Parish Council to address issues such as Traffic Congestion, Affordable Homes and HGV movements in the Village. The Village Plan has already helped deliver vastly improved Sports Facilities at Carr Lane & Tarleton High School and was used by West Lancs Primary Care Trust with the recent extension to Tarleton Health Clinic.

As well as the general business of Parish Council I have a particular interest in the new Coastal Zone incorporating the proposed Linear Park and Ribble Estuary Park, which will be very important for Tarleton in terms of recreation, tourism and business in general. The improvements to our natural assets will benefit us all.

Bob Foster.
