Dog mess remains a very big issue

I AGREE wholeheartedly with Mr David Close. The inconsiderate manner in which people dispose of litter is frustrating and disappointing.

Dog mess is a huge issue in some parts of Polegate; as is litter in general. I echo the frustration Mr Close feels with councils’ response at Town, District and County level and I am disappointed that local town councils seem unable to take action.

Hopefully under the new localism we can take matters more into our own hands.

Polegate has a chance to elect a new councillor to Wealden District Council on August 2.
