Decision details

Request for suspension of car parking charges

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member (Planning, Business Support and Regeneration)

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Decision made


To suspend parking charges and close Ecroyd Street Car Park, Leyland on Saturday 25th September 2021 to enable the car park to be used for stalls taking part in the Taste of Leyland Food Festival event.



Reasons for decision


The car park was closed in 2019 for the event and the event considered a success. As we wish to follow the same structure of the 2019 event. It will also allow for bigger spread of people across the event site.


Other options considered and rejected


Previous to 2019 the event was held on Balfour Court and the land next to Leyland market, in 2019 Balfour court use was refused by the landowner.


Hough Lane was considered but road closure permission would be difficult at a late stage and the event may not be large enough to warrant closing the road.
