KFC Rubbish Blights Hodsow Lane

Yesterday two local residents raised concerns with me with regards the rubbish blighting Hodsow Lane, Pocklington from the new KFC.

One resident expressed their understandable concerns:

“I was driving on Hodsow Lane from the new service station towards Pocklngton on Saturday 5th January and couldn’t help but see a horrible amount of discarded rubbish and packaging from users of KFC. I do feel KFC should take some responsibility for ensuring any litter is cleared.”

I have requested ERYC to discuss these concerns with KFC and to explore how the situation can be improved and managed.

A site visit to KFC this morning showed there to be only one litter bin in the actual car park area. I believe an extra litter bin or two in the actual car park area would help. In addition I believe it is reasonable to request KFC to undertake regular litter pick ups on Hodsow Lane.
