Since becoming District Councillor for Pillowell Alan Grant has been inundated by complaints about free roaming sheep in Yorkley, Whitecroft and Parkend. As Alan said "This is clearly unacceptable and cannot be allowed to continue unchecked. My constituents are fed up with the sheep. I aim to get something done about it!"
Richard Leppington, the District Councillor agreed. "A large amount of my postbag is about sheep nuisance. I have asked Forest of Dean District Council to clean up the worst affected areas particularly near the school. However, I don't know how long we can continue to do this. The cost to the taxpayer is rising all the time. In 2013 /14 it was £600. Last year it had gone up to £1600"
