So unfair to target scrapyard business

4:00pm Tuesday 16th September 2014

WHAT a shame that Cotswold district councillors could not extend outside their "jobsworth" attitude and layers of obviously important red tape and try to assist the owners of the scrapyard on the A429 Moreton-Stratford road to regularise the business opportunity, instead of seeking to shut down a fledgling business enterprise (Journal, August 28).
