Any Other Business


Councillor Danny Purton asked who is responsible for approving dropped kerbs as he believes that there isn’t consistency in the process.

Rissa Long to find out and who is responsible and to let Councillor Purton know.


Councillor Tony Edwards raised the roundabout by the bus station. He says that it is an appalling state and is neglected; the lamp post has been knocked down and is an eyesore.


Councillor Tony Edwards raised the issue again with Momples Road and First Avenue. There was a site visit in September 2018. Councillor Edwards claims this is a dangerous spot and there have been several vehicle collisions. Councillor Edwards asked for CCTV to be installed and to view the footage to decide if any improvements can be made. He feels that we cannot wait for the outcome of J7a. Councillor Edwards has a petition for over 200 signatures. He feels that this spot is unacceptable and dangerous and that there will soon be a fatality.


Rissa Long advised that she would speak to Major Schemes to obtain a response.
