• Spoken to B’sea in bloom about flower/ shrub beds along center of grass areas in Victoria place. They informed me that that was always the council’s responsibility and that they were too busy to do it. Can we discuss the idea.
  • It seems that there is only one camera in Victoria place which can be rotated but when not monitored, will only record what its looking at. I am informed that there can be at least two more fitted to the same mast. I propose that this be done in order to monitor Victoria place in both directions with the existing one used for its present purpose. They would need to be full PTZ cameras of high quality so that the definition is of good quality.
  • The road signs around the town are in need of replacement/ refurbishment. Some of them are bent, some are broken off completely and some are rusty or illegible. There is also a need to have extra ones directing vehicles to the town centre. The white lining is half done with the most important having been left. This is a highways matter and I have spoken to Andy with regard to this.
  • Since I can’t get a reply from the Holiday village in any shape or form, I would like to alter the route of the proposed railway and run it behind the holiday village up to the sewer farm on the lower pathway. I believe this is council land and not an official public footpath. Thoughts please.
  • If we are ignored and the waste transfer station goes ahead, I think we should look at the positives. Extra employment being one. We should also insist that the road from the church to at least the tide mill be widened to accommodate the extra lorry traffic. Also a guarantee that the whole road from Thorrington to Samsons road be upgraded and a written budgetary commitment for the road to be maintained properly in the future.
