 Town and Parish Councils Meeting 

I attended a Town and Parish Councils Meeting at Weeley last week.  The Women’s Cycling Tour was discussed, but it will not be coming to Brightlingsea.  This meeting is mainly about Emergency Planning issues and this item was discussed due to the work that has to be done to ensure everyone’s safety, etc.

We were also asked to agree that each Town and Parish Council could highlight water courses in their parish.  This information will be passed to E.C.C., who will draw up maps, and look into ‘hotspots’.

I asked Damian for clarification of water courses and he said anywhere that ‘puddles’ very badly.  I thought of the grass car park at the back of the beach huts (May not happen now, of course), the Station Road corner where the Co-op is, the bottom of Ladysmith Avenue, and Terry said Lower Park was the worst area.  I gather Cllr. Steady is looking into drainage there.  Please let me know if you are agreeable to this, and if you can identify any other areas, please let Tracey know.

Councillor Vivien Chapman
