Q2) Anna Burnett – What’s happening on the Town Appraisal Questionnaire?
Q3) Mr Price – An independent body sets the allowances, but how is that independent body funded?
Q4) Mrs House – With regard to the speed limits of traffic, is it time we followed suit on ’20 is plenty’? Western Road is a cul-de-sac, but cars still speed down there. Also, nearly two weeks ago our shop window as broken. We are still waiting for the police to contact us regarding our CCTV film.
