Busy Ward Surgery in ASDA this morning, together with fellow Haughton West councillors Dave Lyonette and Andy Scott. Tom Nutt from Haughton North and Chris McEwan from Haughton East were there too.
Issues included dropping-off points for taxi drivers in town; the ASDA planning application; cycling in Haughton; housing grants and CCTV in Springfield Park.
Holding our surgery in a supermarket foyer (we were amongst the first Labour Councillors in the country to so so) has proved a great success - plenty of people just pop over for a chat, even if they don't have a complaint. I'm now in the process of getting emails fired off to the relevant Town Hall officers to address the problems.
