The Chair referred to the public questions and the answers provided that had been published as an addendum to the agenda and had been sent to the resident concerned who was not present.


Asking on behalf of local residents, Councillor Nick Mattey posed a question, relating to complaints he had received, on ‘the smell’ of the local landfill and associated seagull population.


Councillor Nick Mattey raised a second question on behalf of residents with regards to Richmond Road. It was commented that signs preventing parking on the pavement had been removed, yet enforcement had followed once residents parked there. An explanation was requested to follow the meeting.

Local resident Pat Bridgeman had previously complained about pavements in Gordon Road but had not received a final response. Kevin Williams, Senior Professional Engineer, committed to follow up as to the outcome.


It was confirmed that written responses would be provided with regards to any unanswered questions, following the meeting.
