Matters Arising

School Travel Plan

A group is to be formed to monitor progress on this issue.

Traffic issues

The Highways Authority has agreed to repair the 30 m.p.h. sign. They will erect a chevron sign by St. Mary’s Church and repaint the white lines.

A6/Dykes Lane junction.

It will be possible to replace damaged cats eyes. There was the possibility of an improved sign but the Parish Council decided that this might cause an increase in heavy traffic. This would increase the problems at the T-junction at Yealand Road. Cllr Rothwell agreed to speak further with the Highways department.



Deborah Gwilliam suggested that the Parish Council consider purchasing a Smiley face Speed monitoring system [SPID] This would be maintained by the Police .The Cost is £3500 plus installation but it could be shared with other villages .The Clerk will contact  Yealand Redmayne, Warton and Silverdale. Cllr Jackson agreed to mention it to the AONB.

Parish Partnership Business plan

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 conjunction with the School Travel Plan.


Dates of the next meetings

It was agreed to meet on Tuesday 11th July, Wednesday 6th September, Wednesday 1st November 2006 , Wednesday 10th January and Tuesday 6th March 2007.
