HALESWORTH Town Council has received five letters complaining about the behaviour of residents at the Foyer project in the town centre.

But management members who attended the latest town council meeting said they all referred to the one incident that had occurred in five months.

They promised that better supervision would be available soon.

It was explained that the purpose of the project was to help young people to become responsible and self-sufficient, so 24-hour supervision was inappropriate.

Councillors reminded the managers of the conditions under which they had been granted planning permission.

During the public session, residents again expressed concern about the safety of cyclists using the Norwich Road cycle track.

There were suggestions that the junctions with roads were potentially dangerous.

Councillors were also asked if there was any progress on providing a bus shelter for schoolchildren and other bus passengers in a good location to replace the one that was

moved to the other side of Norwich Road.

It was pointed out that, in September, there would be an increase in the number of children travelling to Bungay High School.

Members heard that Waveney District Council had contracted some services out to a new partnership with South Norfolk

in a 15-year strategic contract using the same staff and

including refuse collection, cleansing, cemeteries and car parking.

The next council meeting will be held on Monday, September 1.
