Thanks to Stuart Hibbert for this note of last night’s meeting

“There was much criticism about how the meeting was publicised … and they said they would give better notice next time.

  • At the meeting the Police priorities for the next three months were agreed.
  • The St. Joseph’s site has been recommended for the new two form entry school to be ready for September 2014 – the decision will be made at a cabinet meeting in July.
  • They will be extending the parking review to three new zones … and finalising what they have done in zones D and E up here
  • Some talk on Parish / Community councils and information will be sent out to residents groups in due course
  • Locality Funding
    This had three parts
    (a) £14,500 for community groups – up to £1,000 and looking for matched funding – will be decided by central ward councillors
    (b) £25,000 for road improvements – double yellow lines / pot holes / etc .. they want list of what people want
    (c) Swindon Commercial services are providing a number of additional days per month for each cluster as per
    1 day per month for tree works
    1 day for graffiti
    2 days for other street stuff – back alleys, etc..

In respect to the locality fund – we should draw up a list of things we would like the council to do … may be a walk around some evenings to see what should be done … so that we can provide them with a list and hopefully get things moving … but the days / money is for the whole of Eastcott and Central … so fairly thin !!!”
