Annual Parish Meeting 2014
GR Redford 13th May 2014

Eight residents attended the Annual Parish Meeting held on Monday 12th May 2014.

The Chairman presented the Annual Report of the Parish Council (available for download and reproduced in the Whatton Village News which will be published with the next few days).

In response to a question in respect of glass recycling (which had been raised at last year’s meeting), the clerk explained that Rushcliffe had concluded that glass recycling was not an economic prospect and would not be implemented in the Borough.

Two concerns were raised in respect of the A52/Grantham Road junction. One regarding the sign which indicated that Aslockton was closer than Whatton and secondly, the danger if waiting to turn into Grantham Road from the Grantham direction on the A52. The meeting felt that the issues should be raised with the Highways Agency and the clerk agreed to contact them on the issues raised.

Concern was expressed about the parking situation on Burton Lane and at the Burton Lane/Church Street junction. It was felt that it would be very difficult at times for emergency vehicles to negotiate the road. It was agreed that the Parish Council would look at the issue, but it was understood that in the end any action would depend on residents’ goodwill and sensible parking.
