School Run Safety Campaign
23rd October 2014
Reviewed my own parish council priorities, which now include: Getting out the quarterly newsletter; getting a tree works sub-committee meeting organised; and continuing a review of the Sevenoaks District Council Allocations and Development Management Plan. Reviewed the minutes of the last full council meeting and agreed amendments with the Parish Clerk.
Chaired a meeting of the School Run Satefy Campaign committee. As the new school term begins there will be sessions to enable the swapping, and buying, of high-visibility jackets. The committee is pleased at the number of jackets that were returned last term by school leavers. The highways scheme, drawn up last year by Kent Highways had been put on hold because of lack of funding. However, our county councillor, Roger Gough, is going to pursue the possibility of a phased implementation, at least from a financial perspective, to help make this happen. In the meantime, the parish council is going to firm up on costs for a pedestrian gate at the Edwards Hall site, so that the site may be made available at school run times on a trial basis, when the highway scheme is implemented.
