2127    Development of Nixon's Garage, New Road

Possible problems with brick construction by driveway of Nixon's Garage had been reported to the Chairman.  One problem being that an immediate plan by a resident was to restore the entrance to the old Appleby Hall with the original stones.  It was agreed that the clerk put the problems and objections to Jackie Cross (Highways Authority & letter to N.W.L.D.C.)     

2128    Illegally Tipped Rubble on Allotments

The Chairman reported that the possible culprit had been identified and suggested that he contact the person concerned to ask for the rubble to be moved and disposed of legally.  The councillors agreed to this first course of action.  Meanwhile local developers offered to move some rubble to one side to give wider access to the allotments.
