The Parish Council expressed huge thanks to John for all his hard work on this matter including negotiating with various landowners and groups to obtain all possible throughways and the majority of objectives have been met.
  7. Bus Service Questionnaire – owing to proposed changes to the Peldon bus service the questionnaire was agreed to be filled in as follows ‘Regular bus services in the evening are key for people returning from work and leisure to rural areas, falling into Essex County Council priorities 1 & 2. Reduction of these services can only reduce safety and security for passengers as well as sustainability of our communities’.
