Parish Council meeting September 2018: Summary

Image courtesy axiomhaPlease note: This summary has been written from my personal notes, taken at the meeting. The official minutes, taken by the Clerk to the Council, are normally published on the Parish Council Website when approved by Councillors.

Four members of the public came along to this meeting, held in the School Hall last Thursday evening. Two of them raised issues at the public forum held before official business:

1. A resident who lives close to the main street tabled a letter she had received from Lincolnshire County Council Highways Department, containing statistical information regarding the problem of lorries passing through the village. She also pointed out that the impact of lorries passing through the village was caused not only by the numbers calculated by LCC, but also by their weights, which have tended to increase. Points also discussed included the danger to children crossing the main street to access the school field and the danger and damage caused by drivers illegally mounting verges and footways when two lorries needed to pass each other in the village. (See also agenda item below)

2. A resident who lives adjacent to the site of flooding at the intersection of Kirkby Lane and the main street voiced strongly held views regarding the source and nature of the flood water and the alleged failure of Lincolnshire Highways Department to address the problem He also alleged that the problem is caused by nearby construction work in Roughton Road. (See also agenda item below)

In her opening statement Acting Chairman Penny Stones welcomed our new Clerk, Sarah Kulwicki, and explained that Sam Midgley recently stood down as Chairman. She thanked him on behalf of the Council for all his good work in recent years. She also welcomed members of the public, Parish Councillors and ELDC Councillor Craig Leyland.
