Councillors Lennie and Casey gave full updates on several of issues
raised at previous meeting.
Matters of housing refuse anti social behaviour fencing
paving slabs and general state of hedging were discussed.

The members of the public and the C Council suggested
That a lorry pick up of general rubbish such as suites fridges
should be introduced to pick up this type of waste, or
and skips.

Kevin Mcrossan Housing operations took details of
several issues and agreed to visit those concerned to
resolve the issues. The antisocial issue was dealt with by
John Wallace and all agreed it is a difficult issue, with
funding for staff and equipment to deal with the issues
had been seriously reduced as complaints had risen,
councillor Lennie expects complaints could increase
substantially.

The general concensus of those present questioned
the allocation policy, and that further discussion is
required.
