#GBSpring Clean 24th March 2019 – Dawley Bank











A clean up around Dawley Bank today – three bags of rubbish picked up  and a bag of plastic to be used to create an art piece by Arty Farty with all the plastic picked during the #GBSpringClean.

Many thanks to to Cllr Darren Blackburn and Gary, who is a street champion already, for their efforts which are much appreciated by all in the local area. Well done and thank you!

Morrisons car parking – NEW application

The Morrison’s application for car parking is back!

Not an appeal, a new application – it is confusing as the application is for signage only but the documents sent include the ANPR camera/pole. I have asked for clarification asto whether a separate application is expected to be submitted as it was before.

Nothing has changed except the number of signs has been reduced from 23 to 19 – still with conflicting 2 hours/3 hours information on them and stating that ANPR cameras are in operation.

We will immediately be  OBJECTING and calling it in on the same grounds as before.
