Parish Council presses the case for the Natland Road cycle/footway

County Councillor Brenda Gray attended the first Parish Council meeting of the year and councillors took the opportunity to follow-up recent approaches to the Highways Department by the Traffic & Highways Working Group, and a letter from the Council to Brenda at the end of last year, on the topic of a cycle/footway along the Natland Road. Councillors stressed the widespread support shown by the Parish Plan consultation in 2013 and the road safety and sustainable transport issues for children and families travelling to and from school in Natland and Kendal, as well as the fact that Natland is on a National Cycle Route. Among other things in a long agenda, the Council also set its budget for the coming year and decided that the Parish Council element of the council tax should stay at existing levels for another year. The full minutes of the meeting are available on the parish noticeboard and can be downloaded here.
