Cllr Mark Forsyth, Senior Health and Safety Officer for last year’s display, had warned that the event had “become too successful for its own good” and a meeting was arranged between the firework company, the event management company and Council officers to discuss a way forward.
Last week’s meeting of the Town Council was told that a plan has been agreed to launch the fireworks from the upper football pitch, leaving the lower football pitch available for spectators.
Firework sizes and types will be adjusted (reaching 250ft rather than 350ft) in order to comply with regulations relating to the proximity of buildings.
