The Crossing outside the Meopham Academy, Longfield Road, Meopham - Requested by Cllr Frank Wardle

Reason - because of the proximity to the corner of Longfield Road and Wrotham Road, some cars are coming around the corner faster than they should and are unable to stop in time before reaching the crossing.

8.

Parking Outside Shorne Woods Country Park - Requested by Cllr Bob Lane pdf icon PDF 38 KB

Reason: This was raised at the Parish Council Chairman's Meeting on 22nd May – see note at Item 8. Additional parking restrictions are required, but it is essential that the existing parking restrictions and traffic regulation order is enforced.  It would appear that no enforcement officers from Gravesham ever visit Shorne, hence existing parking and traffic regulations are widely ignored.

Every parked vehicle in this video (filmed in April) is in contravention of existing restrictions.

9.

Corner Protection (Yellow Lines) at the junction of Cob Drive and Forge Lane - Requested by Cllr Bob Lane

Reason: At school drop-off and pick-up times, Forge Lane becomes heavily congested with parked cars, restricting or blocking access to and from the village of Shorne. Corner protection parking restrictions are urgently required.

10.

Regular Parking Enforcement - Requested by Cllr Bob Lane

Reason: Existing parking restrictions are widely ignored in Shorne, since it appears that GBC's parking enforcement staff never visit Shorne.  Visits to Shorne should be included on their schedule.

11.

Exclusion

To move, if required, that pursuant to Section 100A(4) of the Local Government Act 1972 that the public be excluded from any items included in Part B of the agenda because it is likely in view of the nature of the business to be transacted that if members of the public are present during those items, there would be disclosure to them of exempt information as defined in Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Act.
