Minute 123 – Questions from the Public.

Q1 – Mr Price – The Considerate Parking Initiative, according to the paper, is not going to be funded. What has the North Essex Partnership got planned for Brightlingsea and Tendring, Residents parking?  Can you explain how this actually works?  Also, am I right that Tending only has one representative?

A1 – Councillor Aldridge replied that the North East Essex Partnership only has one vote per area, a total of 6 areas. Regarding the Parking Initiative,  Colchester always said they would not take it on.  Regarding residents parking – yes we will probably head down that route, Colchester are hot on things like that.  If you look at their web-site you can see what has been suggested, which is mainly the Clacton area at moment.  The representative could be Ian Taylor or the Councillor Portfolio Holder.

Q2 – Anna Burnett – Good to read in the minutes of the planning meeting that Lime Street is not to be considered by development.  Any development here must include jobs.  It is essential to have work with the housing.

A2 – The Mayor replied that we are hoping to keep Brightlingsea as it was in the previous document.  Let’s hope Lime Street remains off limits for development.
