Locals were also advised that there has a been a share increase in the number of sheds being broken into in the area.
People expressed their concerns about the number of vehicles parking on the pavement on Telford Road. This has been an issue for some time and the Police and Council have already been made aware and are looking at solutions.

The Councils ‘Task Force’ are going to be cleaning up the area behind the shop in Telford and doing some work to make it look better and try to deter fly tipping.
