Chaos Over Bin Collections

Last week our Lib Dem Group Leader Cllr James Newport, sought assurances from the Assistant Director that our refuse contractor had appropriate contingencies in place to deal with any fuel supply shortage. The Council was confident that the contractor had plans in place.
