Summary of Minutes - Monday 6th February 2006
Northall Road Fly Tipping
A group of Residents from the area attended the meeting to voice their concerns.
They felt that problems had escalated of late and that the District Council were not fulfilling their commitments. Several areas of the Road were no go areas for pedestrians due to what they felt was hazardous waste. It was suggested that more street lighting would be beneficial and possibly cameras installed to catch those who left the waste.
A representative from the District Council asked for more residents to contact them directly Tel 01582 474133
The Travellers Site area is dealt with by Beds C.C. County Councillor Piggottt was asked for his comments. He did not have any information with regard to monitoring and did not know when asked if there was additional funding allowed. He agreed to hold a meeting when Managers will be invited to address these issues. A more coordinated policy is needed with stiffer penalties for offenders.
Notice of this meeting will be displayed for any Parishioners wishing to attend.
