Minute Number 194 – Questions from the Public.


Q1)      Brian House – Can you give any information on what is happening down  on the Prom? We went down there this morning to install a new beach hut and were advised by the contractors, rather rudely,  that we should not be on the site.  Councillor J Chapman added that she had spoken to one of the workmen, and they advised that the cost of the crane is £145.00 per day, they start work at 10.30am and are off site by 3pm.


A1)      Councillor V Chapman said she would contact Tendring District Council in the morning about this.


Q2)      Sue Cook – what is the criteria for having solar panels put on roofs of houses in a conservation area?  Would they be allowed?


A2)      Councillor Dixon replied that you should contact the local planning officer at Weeley who can advise on this.


Q3)      Mr Cook – There was a comment in the Standard on Friday about the possibility of loosing our bus service.  This is concerning if people don’t drive- how can they get to work?


A3)       The Mayor replied that if and when the proposal is put forward, we will make the necessary representation.


Q4)       Mike Skerritt – Has there been increased criminal activity since the lights have been turned of?


A4)       The Mayor replied no.


Q5)       Joyce House – Can anything be done about the parking in the ‘no parking’ area of Western Road?  This is particularly bad during school times.  I have contacted the police but was advised that they have 13 schools to look after- what do you want us to do!


A5)       The Mayor replied that we will contact the police to see if they can patrol the area during school drop-off and pick-up times.
