East Chevington Parish Council

More dumping at site

Coun Thelma Morse has said the former Petticas Garage site, in Red Row, is once again in a mess and rubble is being dumped. Earlier this year, Northumberland County Council requested that DP Builders keeps the area tidy and ensures regular checks are made to prevent fly-tipping. Clerk John Douglas said he will notify the county council about the latest problems and ask the authority what can be done about it. Members have raised concerns about the site’s tidiness and appearance numerous times.
