The roads leading to and around the Port are narrow and dangerous. The Council does not believe that this is a problem nor a bar on future development. Consequently, we would request that all members inform the Association of any accidents (including those that are reported to the Police) and near misses. A form is enclosed to make these reports on. Please send them to the Association’s e-mail address. They will then be collated and given to the Council.
