Minutes of the last meeting were agreed and signed by the chairman
Borough and County Councillors: The CBC Tree Policy is being revised. The last planning application for Bellwood is being considered. The Tour Cycle of Britain is coming to Colchester on June 18th, and the roads will be closed early that day.
The Shoreline Management Plan is being revised covering planning powers out to sea, who can take which oysters and passing the seawall maintenance to farmers and also making the seawall more accessible to all but, therefore, it is hoped that the farmers would be compensated. The government have suggested our area could take even more new housing which John is completely opposed to. 72% of our county is rural and we need to try and prevent more post offices and high street banks, etc being closed in our villages.
We congratulated Kevin and John on winning their elections.
Public – Have Your Say: Flooding in Salcott Street and at the crossroads is still a problem when there is heavy rain. Pipe work and ditches seem to be causing the problem. ECC Highways will be contacted again for a site meeting to discuss what needs to be done
