3:44pm Thursday 12th December 2013 in News
THE deputy leader of Ribble Valley Borough Council has called for talk of Clitheroe becoming a ‘zombie high street’ to stop.
Coun Simon Hore, was speaking after The Clitheroe Town Action Group warned that the town was at risk after seeing 12 businesses close since May.
Coun Hore said: “There is naturally going to be turnover of shops and I don’t think it’s fair to say that Clitheroe could become a ‘zombie high street’.
“I think Clitheroe Town Council should take the lead on this issue and work with the community and business leaders to help the town improve.
“Every town has problems but I don’t think that Clitheroe is as bad as some are saying.”
Since May, Athertons, Blockbuster, Clitheroe Music, Coco Couture, the Craven Heifer and Greggs have all closed.
They have been joined by Ladies Boutique, MC Kitchens, The Queen Victoria, Sparkles, Therapy for Hair, the White Horse and Pendle Pets.
