There have also been objections from residents about the removal of grass islands, and bulbs, from the entrances to Grange Close and Walston Close.

Another six months closure of footpaths 21 and 22 through the Redrow construction site has been applied for.

The welcome invitation is also extended to any new residents who have moved into the area in the last few years. It is a chance to see what activities the area can offer. This event is on Friday 3rd November at the Community Centre anytime between 6.00 and 9.00pm.
