21 October 2019Byrness Garage Tenants - Please read

Dear Tenant

Rented Garages, Byrness

I am writing to advise you that it is hoped the external wooden walls of the garages in Byrness will be treated shortly.

A contractor has been appointed and whilst weather dependant he hopes to do the work on Wednesday 13 November, 2019. 

Whilst ever effort will be made to ensure no creoseal will get through the walls there are a few holes in the wood and it is possible some may penetrate into the garages. Consequently the Parish Council strongly recommends that you remove your vehicle and / or any valuable items from the garage at this time and will take no responsibility for any damage caused during this work.

The cost for this work will be paid from the reserved funds that are part of the Parish Council bank balance ring-fenced for the garage maintenance / repairs etc.

I will contact you again nearer the date to confirm matters.


Parish Clerk
