    The purpose is a to make local news available for non commercial use.

    It relies on News feeds from Councils, BBC, Police, Local Blogs, Local news.In order to add extra content and services our external links and displays are free.

    As the blog is to promote local news free and is non commercial non profit making network it would not be possible to pay Press Association Commercial licence fees for content because it is not set up to make a financial gain.

    A recent court case agrees commercial users can be charged for content that is resold for profit. However non commercial blogs etc would not be charged.

    However it appears some press associations are getting rather greedy and are chasing private bloggers for fees if they are using some local newspaper feeds.

    They appear to be using a debt collection business called Buchanan Clark & Wells of Glasgow who are sending made up charges for use of copyright material.

    If you are a private blogger having the same problem I would like to hear from you.

    If you are a online newspaper or press association your comments would also be welcome.

  • Cat litter on road and pavement, 14th October
    Over a week ago refuge collectors threw bin bags on to the corner disabled parking bay in Beel Close. One of these bins split and resulted in cat litter on the pavement and on the disabled parking bay. Despite reporting this direct to council by email over a week ago, nothing has been done and the litter remains there with neighbourhood cats using it as their toilet. The 'clean up' vehicle has passed twice in this time and both times avoided cleaning it up.

  • Traffic causing house to shake, 13th October
    Approximately six months to one year ago there was a gas leak outside our house in the road. (West Bay Rd). Grid reference SY 46610 91218. The leak was repaired by contractors and the hole approx 1m X 1m was filled in. The filling has now compacted and there is a significant depression in the road. The centre of the depression has been carefully measured and is just less than 2 inches lower than the adjacent road surface. When large vehicles(HGV's , Buses, etc.) hit this depression the whole house shakes and I can feel the floors moving up and down. I am concerned about damage to the house. The problem has been there about 3 months and is getting worse.

    There are 2 British telecom cabinets located outside number 34 Wardcliffe rd. There is a 6 inch gap between each cabinet and the wall behind them. This gap is filled with rubbish by passers by.
