2.1  The Colne Yacht Club have contacted us to enquire whether the Town Council would be interested in supporting an International Women’s Day event on Thursday 8th March 2018, at the Colne Yacht Club?

One Hundred years ago, in 1918, the Representation of the People Act gave women aged over 30 the right to vote in England. This 100-year anniversary gives even more poignancy to International Women’s Day, 2018.

In my previous roles in industry I have always participated in events to promote the role of women and I would like to continue this tradition while I am Commodore of the CYC.   As such we aim to host a fayre for organisations that either support women’s issues or encourages women to participate, that are based in Brightlingsea. Naturally there will be an element of opportunities associated with the sea, but we would like to encourage broader participation from other groups in the town.

The charge for the event would be £10 per head and entitle delegates to an afternoon tea and a glass of Prosecco.

We would also be delighted if the Mayor was able to attend as our guest.

2.2       Waiting Restrictions Waterside – Tendring Distict Council have received a request via the North Essex Parking Partnership for parking / waiting restrictions in and around Waterside Brightlingsea as per the attached map to “revert back” to how they were previously.

Their e-mail states:- “None of us here can fully understand what that means. However the NEPP seem to think this may mean no restrictions at all other than the double yellow line junction protection – see map TRO 6021 above.

We are not sure about this because we think it important that the Hard and the Waterfront does have some parking restrictions to prevent all day parking. Perhaps altering the 30 minute limited waiting areas to one or two hours may be more sensible and making them more seasonal?

Do you or any of your members know about this request?

We would be happy to support it but want to be sure what it entails and that everyone is happy.

We also understand that the completion of the development at Waterside will require new parking restrictions as attached also. This takes out everything up until Sydney Street

Can you help us resolve this one fairly quickly as we need to agree the changes or we may lose the opportunity.”
