  1. Speed Limit Reminders (SLRs):  The Chairman noted that he and Cllr Wurzer are going to attend a meeting with a representative from BDBC about SLRs.  BDBC have advised that they could manage our device or they could provide and manage their own device, in which case the PC would not need a licence.  Cllr Wurzer noted that the PC could then select the times we pay for. It was noted that the council’s own device (speed indication device) is still not working.  The clerk will contact the supplier, CA Traffic, for advice.


  2. Frontage of Bells Meadow:  Cllr Culley raised two issues in relation to Bells Meadow:


    1. Vehicles have taken to parking on the verge, encouraged by the condition of it, for which Hyde Housing on being written to about this, have since replied that the verge is a Highways matter.  Their responsibility ending at the barked area in front of the development.  The clerk will contact Hampshire Highways to confirm.  Cllr Styles noted that the barked area is not well kept either, with a couple of trees having lost their supports.  It was agreed that Cllr Styles would take photos which the clerk will send to Hyde Housing.


    2. The area used by the developers during the build for contractors parking has still not been restored.  Cllr Styles will take photos which the clerk will send to Hyde Housing.
