Emma Dickinson Gater a Ribble Valley resident placed on Change. Org website a petition to Prime Minister Boris Johnson to reject any attempt to merge Ribble Valley Borough with other local authorities in East Lancashire particularly Blackburn with Darwen. The petition reads
Blackburn with Darwen Council have proposed a Super Council, which will absorb the current Ribble Valley. We Valley residents stood firm last time this was proposed... Its time to do so again. We will NOT be accepting this. We want to remain Separate and Independent.
