Thank you!
Thanks to those who attended our meeting and to all who booked a place which meant the meeting started on schedule.

Particular thanks to Cllr Sara Bashford and Cllr Stuart King who spoke at the meeting and answered questions. Thanks also to Cllr Margaret Bird who attended and spoke with residents before and after the meeting.

We really appreciated the help of Valerie Willis-Skinner who helped set up, clear away and dealt with registration on the night.

Future meeting dates and themes
Tuesday 14 March is booked for the next meeting, either for a meeting on crowdfunding in association with the Council, if there is sufficient demand, or it may be a general meeting.

Tuesday April 4 has been pencilled in for a meeting with the new borough commander, Chief Superintendent Jeff Boothe, who has agreed to speak and take questions at one of our meetings. We hope that this will be confirmed next week when the borough commander returns from leave.

20mph consultation query
Councillor Maggie Mansell received a prompt response to the query on  the 20mph consultation in areas 3, 4 and 5 from Cllr Stuart King, as follows:

“The consultation formally started 18 Jan, but we started delivering leaflets from 13 Jan to ensure most if not all were delivered in time for the consultation opening on 18 Jan.  This was communicated to all councillors by email on Friday 13 January.
Any comments submitted up to and including 15 Feb will be accepted as part of the consultation process, including any submitted in the days immediately prior to 18 January.
Hope this clarifies and reassures.”
