County Councillor Report was previously circulated including plans to make Colchester Town Centre streets safer, greener and healthier. Speeding is a huge problem all over the county with the network being back to approximately 82% of the volume it was prior to Covid-19. The police are carrying out speed checks throughout the county, and one took place at Great Wigborough last week. They are also setting about addressing the increasing problem of Layer Road at the reservoir being used as a race track, a public meeting with Layer de la Haye may be organised.
Measures to improve this main road through our villages are being considered including improved signage and the possibility of another VAS at Peldon but for this type of road many speed restrictions such as speed bumps are not possible following national ruling.
Borough Councillor Report: The full council will meet this week and the proposal of charging for garden waste will be quashed but reconsidered next May. CBC has lost millions in revenue during this pandemic but the government will cover some of that shortfall. Some pleasure venues will reopen on 23rd July but with many restrictions.
