Dr Dan Chairs Residents Meeting in Wetheringsett

Following a busy advice bureau in Mendlesham, Dr Dan chaired a meeting for residents affected by the ongoing disruption caused by HGVs on Town Lane Wetheringsett, with around 150 people attending the meeting.

The meeting brought together representatives from Mid Suffolk District Council, Suffolk County Council and Suffolk Constabulary in a bid to find a multi-agency solution to end the misery caused to residents. A number of outcomes were discussed at the meeting and Dr Dan is following these up individually with the respective authorities.

Dr Dan remains committed to helping the residents and is hopeful that a solution can soon be found.
