Prior to the Parish Council Meeting Mrs Buckland raised the issue of the hedge at Harvey Way which again is in need of cutting. It was agreed to contact Simon Howell and Mr Drane said that he would chase this issue.
Mr Welbourn discussed the Parish Council’s submissions to the Local Highways Panel. Some of his comments, based on his correspondence with Essex County Council concerning speed limits, have been incorporated into the submissions which would be discussed at the next Local Highways Panel meeting. The Chairman had discussed the submissions when he met Rissa Long (Essex Highways) concerning the footway project. She was not optimistic about the applications for 40 mph limits.
The Parish Council Meeting opened at 8.22 pm.
