July 2011 Minutes Print

PUBLIC MEETING HELD ON 19TH JULY, 2011 AT 6.30P.M. AT KENYON HALL, HOLT.

PARKING ISSUES ON CROSS.

This was an informal meeting called by Holt Community Council to discuss the problems with parking and to show and discuss a possible yellow lines scheme drawn up by WCBC highways.

Several community councillors, Councillor Morris and police were present and the hall was packed with residents. Mr Gaade, the Chairman, took the Chair.

A lively discussion took place with  a lot of people voicing strong concern against lines and also the other side concerned for safety, which is where the issue began!

Lots of very good ideas were put forward and some of these will probably be done, if possible. The meeting ended with a petition being handed to the council against the scheme under discussion and everyone was thanked by Mr. Gaade for attending as the meeting had served its purpose which was to get varied views on this. People were asked to put any ideas in writing to be discussed at a council meeting.
