I totally sympathise with the resident who wrote to complain about the sheep mess in Bream.
This situation has blighted the community for many years with numerous efforts by different agencies all proving unproductive.
Now, however, there are renewed efforts afoot to crack down on irresponsible shepherding. With the full support of West Dean Parish Council, Bream Councillor Hyett and myself have persuaded the Forest of Dean District Council to set up a task force to address the problem. In addition, the UKIP group will be bringing forward a motion at Full Council calling for the persons concerned to be billed for the cost of clearing up after their sheep.
