Good news in Simonswood for once

04.24.08 | Comment?

Today brought news that a firm on Simonswood Industrial Estate has been fined £4, 000 plus costs for not taking reasonable precautions to contain materials on their trucks bringing stuff to their site, resulting in spillages all over the road and potential accidents.The District Council, who carried out the prosecution after complaints from residents and from the Parish Council (well done to them), would never admit that they’ve taken action because residents (and councillors) have stood up for their rights , but I’m certainly  inclined to think that this pressure has finally got through to the Council, and that the issues surrounding the management of this ‘dirty’ estate are finally getting some recognition.
