Carlton Vilage Communal Areas

It has been suggested by members of the parish that the Council employs a caretaker to look after the communal areas such as the village garden, Pinfold and grass verges during the Spring and Summer months to keep the village looking tidy.  It is anticipated that the cost to the parish for this service will be approximately £2,340 per year.  The Council have asked AG Services, who are local authority approved and are caretakers to numerous villages including Bellerby and West Witton, to carry out a trial run in the next couple of weeks to see how long it takes to do and what effect it has on the look of the village.  If anyone has any comments to make on the proposal, please contact a member of the Parish Council or email the Clerk on
