18/055 GRANT APPLICATIONS
18/056 REPORTS FROM COUNTY AND DISTRICT COUNCILLORS
(VERBAL REPORT AT MEETING; COPY OF REPORT TO CLERK)
The reduction in vehicle weight limit from 18T to 7.5T coming through the village was requested by C/Cllr Peck a year ago. Parish Council to send letter of support.
C/Cllr Peck is well aware of the poor workmanship on the Manvers Estate roads and is due to meet the Area Highways Manager in August to walk the site.
C/Cllr Peck handed the Parish Councils petition opposed to fracking was to NCC.
C/Cllr Peck has reported various potholes and faulty streetlights.
C/Cllr Peck has given donations to local groups and organisations.
The result of the consultation of the East Midlands Rail Franchise about the Robin Hood Line has been received. There were 2,000 responses, 90% of which were on favour of the extension. The Government’s response is that whoever is the successful company needs to include it in their business case. This is slightly disappointing but C/Cllr Peck will continue to campaign for the extension to the Robin Hood Line.
There was a motion put to NCC Full Council requesting permission to send a letter to the Secretary of State asking for the 7 Nottinghamshire District Councils to be disbanded and the authority handed to the County Council. No business case was presented showing how this would work. After an amendment to the motion, it was passed.
The motion about disbanding the district councils was discussed. D/Cllrs were concerned about the impact on Parish Councils.
The District Council are launching a new initiative – Safer/Greener/Cleaner.
