Bransty & Harbour Neighbourhood Forum

Despite the filthy weather there was a reasonable turnout for the Neighbourhood Forum meeting at Bransty School at 7pm

Agenda items included

1) The new system for allocating social housing, which is due to be adopted in Cumbria before the end of the year, whereby people on the housing waiting lists can apply for social homes of their choice rather than wait to be allocated something by the powers that be

2) The scheme which provides supported lodging for young adults leaving care

3) Feedback from the Bransty school youngsters who presented a petition to the council on dog fouling.

(This provoked a fierce but polite and constructive argument about whether the council is doing enough to keep the streets clean and whether this should be higher on our priority list. Most of the residents who spoke appeared to think it should.)

4) Grants applications.
