For all those who could not attend the Parish Council meeting last night - Highways update

29 September 2022

For all those who could not attend the Parish Council meeting last night:-  it was discussed by Essex County Cllr Siddall and our Highways Team that, after the meeting in January last, the Cabinet Member for Highways had been approached by Cllr Siddall, and a walk through of the Village had been undertaken by Highways to look at the problems in the Village as a whole as well as in flash point areas, and to look for the best way forward.  The review has been delayed due to a responsibility change within the Highways team, but we are still hoping that this will give us suggestions that can be taken forward to improve the issues.  As people who have read the meeting minutes over the past few months will know, this subject is reviewed every month, and our current focus is a pilot scheme for a mobile VAS that can be hired from Essex County Council which will actually fine speeders directly, and therefore be a hard deterrent to speeding, which the Parish Council are hoping to be able to fund through their current VAS budget when it comes online.
