A Council spokesman said, "Lancashire County Council are leading on the ‘Superfast Lancashire’ project and BT is their contractor for the rollout programme. For the installation of the majority of on-street broadband infrastructure (the green boxes, etc) then BT don’t have to seek our permission they just advise us they are going to do the work and then get on with it."
A website has been set up for residents to check on the status of their superfast broadband availability in their area: www.superfastlancashire.com
The Rishton postcode has been checked and the website is saying the following:
Your area is enabled for Superfast Fibre but your cabinet is not ready yet so you can’t place an order today. It is in our plans to be upgraded and we update this info weekly, so please check back later.
Residents are able to register their interest on the website and get notified when they are accepting orders.

Residents have complained that since the demolition of the majority of the mill the pipe has merely been left open at one end which means that the noise of running water during wet weather keeps people awake at night, particularly during summer when bedroom windows are sometimes left open.
The Rishton Councillors have requested that the owners of the building effect repairs as soon as possible.

Cllr Clare Cleary said, "Attendance at Area Council meetings has fallen over the years as people have found it easier to get in touch with us in various different ways, such as the internet. However, you can't replace a face-to-face discussion and we would like to make that easier by holding more walk-in surgeries."
Dates will be announced in the near future.
