Summary:
The following statement is proved to be independent from $[\operatorname{LB}+\neg \operatorname{CH}]$: \linebreak $(*)$ Let $X$ be a Tychonoff space with $c(X)\leq \aleph _0$ and $\pi w(X)<\frak C$. Then a union of less than $\frak C$ of nowhere dense subsets of $X$ is a union of not greater than $\pi w(X)$ of nowhere dense subsets.
