Any Other Business

A letter has been received from Mr. J.

Several residents have asked that the recycling bins be permanently sited in Chapel Lane as this is a more convenient site.



Cllrs. M. Hall and S. Rollinson reported that the last quarterly meeting of ERNLLCA it was agreed that Alan Barker not be contacted by Councils during August.  The reason for this is that he has a backlog of work and without interruptions can clear this.  It was also agreed that he be given an assistant as his workload is growing.  This will result in an increase in subscriptions next year. This must be budgeted for in the next precept.
