Lack of respect shown to Eastwood

2016-10-12 06:00

I AM becoming infuriated with the lack of respect shown to Eastwood by so-called business people.

It started with the poorly built and maintained mini- factories, then the eyesore that is the scrapyard at the turn-off to Eastwood.

The icing on the cake, just over the bridge on top of the river bank, is a business that appears to throw its rubbish and rubble over the fence.

This filth then cascades down the bank to the already polluted stream that flows alongside the railway line.

My question to Mike Amod, our counsellor, is are there no by-laws that can prevent the degradation visited­ on Eastwood?
