Further to our last update, Cllr Simon Carter who was elected as a Labour Councillor for Tottington Ward in 2012, has still not resigned and, as far as we know, is continuing to claim his Councillor’s allowances. As he has pleaded guilty to a serious sexual offence involving children, we believe that this renders him as unfit to hold the office of a Councillor.
We have been busy helping the people of Tottington, Walshaw and Affetside and various matters including:-
- Planning Application 58848 at the former Berry’s Garden Centre, off Turton Rd. Details can be viewed at :-
You can e-mail your views on it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Getting overgrown bushes pruned on Sunnywood Lane
- Ensuring new housing developments being built in Tottington are keeping within their planning conditions
- Getting pot-holes fixed on Tottington Road
- Getting culverts and drains unblocked on Harwood Road
- Alerting the police and police support officers to incidents of anti-social behaviour at Old Towns Meadow
The newly selected Conservative Candidate for the next local elections in Tottington, Mr Greg Keeley, has also been busy with local farmer Rob McKenzie, getting Old Kays Park cut.
Greg also recently hosted a fundraising BBQ at his house at Claybank Cottages which was a big success!
And on that light-hearted note – that’s it for now. Please feel free to comment on the topics covered on this Blog.
