Broomhill elects a new councillor
At last week's local council elections Paul Scriven, Lib Dem, lost his seat to Jayne Dunn, Labour. Paul was our councillor for several years and over that time had built close links with the local community groups. During his time as Leader of the council he made significant inroads on the problems of night-time noise in Broomhill by introducing a new Licensing policy that recognised problems of 'saturation' of certain types of licensed premises in some areas of the city. He also encouraging Licensing and Planning officers to coordinate their activities more effectively, particularly with respect to enforcement of trading hours restrictions. So we extend our thanks to Paul for his work on our behalf and our best wishes for the future. To Jayne, a warm welcome to her new role; we are looking forward to getting to know her and working with her to further the interests of the community.
