Parish Councils can formally ask the
Highways Authority to consider three items per Annum. The Parish Council
consider that it would be advantageous to ask for a 20m.p.h speed limit by the
school .The creation of a footpath between Yealand Conyers and Yealand Redmayne
remains a priority. J. Panton was invited to speak and informed the Parish
Council that both a speed limit and footpath had been allowed in her previous
home in Cumbria. The Parish Council will pursue this at future meetings in
