County Cllr Arckless Small Schemes
The Members were considering ideas for new local projects in the village that could be supported by County Cllr Arckless’ Members Small Schemes allowance. Suggestions would be brought back to the September meeting.
Transport Plan Priorities 2015-16
Priorities were identified as:
1. Extention of 30mph speed limit between High and Low Hauxley
2. Improved signage on bends
3. The resurfacing of Hauxley Lane
WW1 Centenary Exhibition
The Members of the Parish Council would like to thank Irene Liddle for her hard work and extensive research into the history of the men and women of Hauxley which was recently displayed in a respectful and very well attended exhibition in the Village Hall; a fitting tribute to those who gave their lives.
Due to ill health, Cllr Smailes was forced to resign from the Council. The members thanked him for his years of service and wished him well for the future.
Proposed flood defence improvements
Members commented on the planning application that key documents were missing such as a risk assessment, concern was raised about access via the ramp by the JCB and conditions should be applied requesting any repairs be carried out subsequent to the works. Members commented that the timing of the works was completely inappropriate to the local economy and the tourist season.
The next meeting of the Parish Council is 6.30pm on Monday 13 March 2017 in the Village Hall, Low Hauxley – the public are welcome to attend.
