We seem to be going through a quiet patch, waiting for replies on a number of fronts.
- Getting the particulate monitors we purchased operational. Then we can get them out to residents.
- We have sent a Freedom of Information request to the office of the Secretary of State requesting a copy of the reasons why New Monks Farm was not called in. They responded, asking for another month to look at it as it was a complicated development. We found that strange as, if it was looked at in detail by the Secretary of State, James Brokenshire, then all the information should have been to hand.
- AREA OPEN MEETING – Friday November 8, 7pm at the Coop community space, opposite the main Coop in Shoreham. Your chance to ask questions and put forward ideas.
- CLIMATE CHANGE SUMMIT – Saturday, October 5 from 10 until 4 at the Ropetackle. There is a wide range of speakers – Committee on Climate Change – sustainability in the Orkneys – the Green Alliance and Peter Owen Jones discussing what we can do to protect the environment. More information at shorehamwordfest.com Tickets for the day are £20.
We are liaising with the residents of West St in Shoreham who are concerned about the traffic and resulting air pollution resulting from West St being used as a rat run.
We have written to Focus about the parking situation.
IKEA – There is still no word about the S106 agreements (money) from NMF for education , police etc. or about the ownership of a strip of land need for the magic roundabout for IKEA.
