  • Thank you for your report regarding the hit/missing column. We have the lighting column on a list of replacements to be programmed as soon as we can. Due to only having an interim contractor at present works can take a little longer to be completed but we can assure you this is on the replacement list.

  • On scheme to be carried means nothing, we need to have action at this time of year. By the way, council tax payments are on list to action, if I missed 6 month payment you would attack me with court summons. Now that's an idea!
