Questions from Councillor Gant

Question on Notice from Councillor Gant to Councillor Sinclair
Why has the dog waste bin on the canal towpath by the Frenchay Road bridge been consistently left unemptied? If Council is proposing to give officers greater powers to make boaters and others look after the waterways, would it not be a good start for council to make sure its officers keep their part of the deal by keeping the living and recreational environment of boaters and other users in an acceptable condition?

Written response:
The canal towpath is a popular location for dog walkers. Officers will monitor the situation and take any necessary action.

Supplementary question:
I note that the the bin being emptied now and thank you for this. Is the answer to the second question ‘yes’?

Yes it is – and yes I agree with the second part.
