Councillor Jack Scott, Cabinet Member for Development and Transport at SCC, said:

“The displays look absolutely great. This issue has come about because a local resident complained they were restricting access. I’m sure the officer’s decision to take action was made with the best of intentions.

“I’ve told the department that we need to think again and find a common-sense way forward. I hope to meet with Mr and Mrs Williams in the near future and I can assure them that no action will be taken until those discussions have taken place.”
