A member reported that Newport City Council workers had closed the dual carriage access road to Church Lane without notice. Members were disappointed that the verges are not being cut following “no mow May”
The council recycle centre will continue to have a booking system. Cars are building up at Berryhill Cottage again. Members noted that the gates of the Halfway Garage are impeding the footpath, and with a burger van now on site it could be very dangerous.
Members were concerned about the condition of the play area in Celtic Horizon following complaints from residents, although the community council is not responsible for the maintenance members agreed to support residents in their campaign to get park repaired.
