HAVERHILL TOWN COUNCIL TURNS BLUE FOR THE FIRST TIME
Haverhill Town Council fell under Conservative leadership for the first time in its 16-year history after a by-election saw two more Tory councillors voted on to the town council.
The by-election resulted in Elaine McManus and Helen Dudley-Smith joining the town council.
It also meant that for the first time in recent memory, all four strands of government were Conservative led - Suffolk County Council, St Edmundsbury Council and MP Richard Spring.
BUS DEPOT CONCERNS
Residents living near the Burton’s Coaches depot in Duddery Hill, Haverhill, said its workers were leaving their cars parked outside their homes, blocking their drives, all day, and feared it could endanger lives.
A meeting was called by one Duddery Hill resident to discuss the issue but despite that the bus company said that it had not received any complaints about it and did not believe its staff were parking on the road as it had staff parking in the depot.
