Council lobbies for action on Natland Road footway/cycleway

A lot of this month’s meeting of the Parish Council was spent reporting back on issues raised at the October meeting and lining up lots of exciting new areas of activity for the January agenda (when we hope to be taking several new actions from the Parish Plan forward – including the formation of a history group and the better coordination of village activities). One thing decided on the night was, following a proposal from the new Traffic & Highways Working Group, to write to our County Councillor Brenda Gray reminding her of the strong case for a footway/cycleway along Natland Road, including the significant support for it shown by residents during the Parish Plan process. The County Council is currently deciding how to allocate money from the Local Growth Fund and so we are striking while the iron is hot!

These are exciting times on the Parish Council and we’ve still got room for one more councillor with an interest in seizing the opportunity to make a difference for our parish. Do get in touch if you’re interested. You can read the full draft minutes of the November NPC meeting here.
