Parish Councillors delight at Labours Grass Cutting & Dog Fouling agenda.
Parish Councillor Scott Dickinson has expressed his delight at the announcement of the Northumberland Labour Groups priorities if they win a majority in May.

Looking at some of the commitments on the Street Care agenda I am delighted that improvements to Grass Cutting along with tackling Dog Fouling is on the agenda of the Labour Party in Northumberland. Commitment to improve grass cutting that was a major issue in many areas including Chevington and Widdrington Areas in 2012.

I chair the Druridge Bay Cluster which is made up of the local parish councils and during last year grass cutting was a major issue. This will be a joint effort not only with the county council but also ISOS who took over managing their own grassed areas. The Councils needs to work closely with ISOS to ensure that the grass cutting is up to speed and it will be the job of the new County Councillor to ensure that happens.

Residents who are in ISOS properties should still be represented well by a County Councillor even tho they are a tenant of the ISOS company, if I am elected in May I will do just that.

Dog fouling is a major issue across the Druridge Bay Council ward I have highlighted it in my area so have other parish councils, looking at the table below Northumberland has failed to attempt to deal with the issues only tackling 14people with fines. Much more needs to be done of this and the Northumberland Labour Group has it high on their agenda, it may seem like a small issue but it means a lot to people.
