At the meeting on 22nd April, the Parish Council considered an issue concerning the Tarvin Sands lay-by on the A54, close to Brick and Slate site. It was claimed that because the lay-by is screened by overgrown trees and shrubs, it is used overnight for illegal activity. Overnight parking also causes problems such as the area being used as a public toilet.

The Parish Council agreed to discuss this matter at its May meeting, having first consulted with neighbouring parishes. It was noted that the complainant felt that cutting back, or clearing the trees and shrubs to make the lay-by more visible, would help, as would closing it overnight.
