Cllr Brown asked whether dogs should be kept on leads – not necessarily but they must be under control, unless subject to a ‘dogs on lead’ order
Cllr Brown expressed concern at the dark areas created by the new led lighting on Gaitskell Crescent. Ensure the garden area is ‘cut back’ and monitor the area when the nights draw in.
