He also spoke about the proposed No. 10 bus route from Edwinstowe which will now go to Worksop when it arrives in Warsop and will become 2 hourly. Residents who use the service from the Robin Hood area to come into Warsop are not happy. It will go in the January edition of Warsop News and the public will be invited to have their say to NCC. Finally, he told the meeting that the Household Re-cycling centre may close in 3 years when a new super re-cycling centre will be opened on the MARR route. Members commented that this will encourage fly-tipping and people will not travel out of Warsop to take their rubbish. A letter will be sent from the PC to NCC voicing our concerns.

In view of the conservation issues recently experienced with the Post Office, Cllr. Kerr suggested that planning officers Mike Avery and Martyn Saxton and conservation officer be invited to a meeting to explain the restrictions and for the PC to explain the difficulties faced by shop owners. There are lots of buildings in the town centre that are in desperate need of repairs, but the conservation policies, restricts them and the costs are increased.
