News From Your Ward Councillors
Since being elected in May 2007 we have been busy in the Ward looking after the interests of our residents. These are some of the issues dealt with:
We successfully saved the green spaces in Hookhills, which were included in the original list of assets for disposal. These are important features in the area, which have now been removed from the list.
Traffic calming in Galmpton is scheduled to go ahead soon.
Resurfacing of Bascombe Rd between Bridge Rd & Elberry Ln is due to start this financial year, together with the section of Copythorne Rd between Bascombe Rd and the junction to Churston Court Farm.
We successfully campaigned and avoided having poster sites along the Common on the approach to Brixham.
We helped to save the Post Offices in our Ward.
We managed to get the travellers moved off sites in our Ward, and we are continuing to liaise with officers regarding the introduction of a ‘barrier’ to keep vehicles off the Common.
The Transportation Working Party accepted our recommendation that the 30-mph limit should be extended from Windy Corner to Churston Cross. This should be implemented after consultation with Police, etc.
We have been instrumental in setting up a Community Partnership for the Galmpton, Churston & Broadsands area. The exact boundaries to be discussed at the Partnership Steering Committee meeting in April.
We hold a surgery at Churston Library on the first Saturday of every month from 10:00 am to 12 noon excluding August. Also there will be no surgery in May because of the Bank Holiday. No appointment is necessary.
We pledge to continue to work for all the residents in our Ward. If you cannot attend a surgery in person please phone or E-mail either of us.
