Due to resignation of Councillor Emma Fox and uncontested election we now have a vacancy for parish councilor for Challock Parish Council. No experience is necessary as training will be given. Closing date for applications is 12th May 2019.
Clerk has reported multiple potholes at the entrance to Kiln Close, St Cosmos Close & Blind Lane.
The Parish Council has been invited to attend a presentation for the KCC A252 Safer Roads Fund scheme. The presentation will provide information about the scheme and where they are currently in the programme. The meeting will give parish councils’ the opportunity to put forward any ideas or concerns regarding the A252 in their area. KCC cannot guarantee they will be able to address all issues raised as part of this scheme, but will look to set up a Highway Improvement Plan for each parish that can be progressed separately. Councillor Annabel Burden, Councillor John Ramsden and the Clerk will be attending the seminar.
A survey of the trees on the Lees will be carried out late summer early autumn, followed by a tree maintenance programme.
Footpaths – Reported problem to KCC PROW footpath AE85 being obstructed by fence at Pested Farm.
