    Cllr Chapman declared his personal and prejudicial interest. After reporting on his inspection he left the meeting whilst Councillors discussed a response.
    RESOLVED: That Parish Council is concerned with the road safety of large lorries turning into and using both Chapel Hill and Cottage Lane during the construction period. Should permission be granted, Parish Council ask that an appropriate Traffic Management Plan is in place which restricts the movement of lorries to outside rush hour times, (Suggested hours of operation 10:00 to 15:00). Adequate signage should also be placed in Chapel Hill during the period of construction. At the end of development, the section 106 should revert back as PC cannot see a real justification to varying this condition for staff, emergency services, service/delivery vehicles and events.
