Matters Arising


Cllr Calnan reported that Emma has removed rubbish from Dykes Lane and Roseacre Lane. She will be asked to clean the Yealand Conyers road signs. Cllr Calnan suggested that a planter could be sited at the pump. She would take responsibility for watering the plants.

Emma will be retained for the next year. John Holmes has expressed an interest in doing the Lengthsman work in Yealand Conyers.


LCC Traffic- Snape Lane

Mr Holt, the Senior Traffic Engineer had written to say that the ‘Unsuitable for Heavy Goods Vehicles’ signs are advisory signs for HGVs not vans. The Clerk had been asked to confirm that the two main offenders are HGVs and to provide addresses if possible. The Clerk agreed to enquire what the criteria are for a vehicle to be classed as a HGV. She would also update Mr Wood on the situation.



Mr Holt has agreed to carryout a survey of the vehicle speeds close to the access to Yealand House. This will be carried out over a period of a week and will help determine if any further action or amendments to the lining and signing would be appropriate.
