People living in the Fylde area will again soon be able to access Lancashire County Council's registration service much closer to home.
From Friday 1 December, a registration officer will be based in the Adult Social Services office building on Hastings Place, Lytham. This is in addition to the registration services that are already provided across Lancashire and the main base which is located at Preston Registration Office on Bow Lane, Preston.
This arrangement has been put in place following the temporary closure of St. Anne's Library, on Clifton Drive South. Specialist survey work is currently ongoing inside the library to identify all the work needed and ensure that this historic Carnegie building can be fully repaired.
County Councillor Peter Buckley, Lancashire County Council's cabinet member for community and cultural services, said: "When St Annes library was unexpectedly closed, the nearest place for residents living in Fylde to access the registration service was Preston. We fully appreciated that this could be difficult and inconvenient for some people.
"As a solution to this, we have been looking for an alternative location in Fylde, and the available space in the Adult Social Services office on Hastings Place is ideal."
The Lancashire registration service records all the births and deaths in the county and performs over 3,800 marriages each year.
