  • Discuss vandalized cable wire seat and possible fitting new one if damage has ceased.
  • Decision required: Any further measures required with regard to Covid-19 and current government guidelines

3.  Scope of Email Service

  • To discuss what the parish council email service should be used for and by whom

4.  Highways Issues

  • To note that following the public speed meeting in the summer of 2019 the project for improvements is lodged on ECC Local Highways Panel website for action in the form of a Feasibility Report being required which is now being chased up. The list of outstanding projects/jobs on the website for all of Essex is quite lengthy and funding is a major stalling block.
  • The parish council has requested more speed checks by the police in our villages and for installation of the blue signs seen in other villages.
  • All our roads are scheduled for resurfacing from 28th April 2021 for an 8-day period so be prepared for closures and disruption but hopefully it will be worth all the inconvenience.
