2 members of the public


Cllr Orson updated the PC on MBC. Mentioned that many CLLRs were unhappy about the unification with Leicestershire County Council.

Members of the public highlighted the recent flooding issue at Perkins Lane and lack of proper signage by the company making repairs and the dangers posed to drivers having to reverse and turnaround along the narrow lane in the dark.

Cllr Lomas agreed and explained how he spent almost an hour on the phone before he made contact with the water board who explained it was emergency works and as such there could have been no prior notification.

The emergency aside, the lack of proper signage or lighting was concerning to the PC.
