Anyone interested in taking part should attend the meeting place in the Chapel Street car park, where there is free parking.

“This is a great opportunity for residents to come along to discuss any issues affecting them in this area.

“Issues may include street scene problems, rubbish, fly-tipping, abandoned vehicles, inappropriate parking, drug and petty crime issues, dog-fouling etc.

“The police will be in attendance. Ward councillors and Melton Borough Council officers are being invited to attend.

“We will ensure that any issues we are made aware of on the day will be reported to the relevant authorities.”
