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.
