Dog Waste

Posted: Mon, 17 Dec 2018 11:51 by Lucy Flavin

Once again the PC has been alerted to the ongoing problem of dog waste left on pavements and the green areas of the parish. Dog fouling is the most offensive type of litter on our streets. It is anti-social, unhygienic and is proven to be a health hazard. The faeces of a dog can transmit diseases to other animals and to humans, especially young children. More »

One problem area is the playing field in Old Dalby. This recreational space is available to all residents and there is nothing worse than having to constantly look for dog poo to prevent you or your children stepping or even falling into it.

Please pick up after your dog and either take the waste home or put it in one of the bins provided. » Less

Boundaries Review

Posted: Mon, 17 Dec 2018 11:45 by Lucy Flavin

The PC is aware that our parish has changed and grown over the years. Planning applications agreed or currently in submission indicate further growth in the future.

The parish is currently divided into two wards, Old Dalby and Nether Broughton. Queensway is currently part of the Nether Broughton ward despite having a population of a similar size. To ensure that residents of all areas of the parish are adequately represented at a local level the PC approached Melton Borough Council regarding the possibility of a boundaries review. More »

The PC has been informed that a borough wide review is due in 2019 and will keep residents updated on this via these articles and PC website. » Less
