Church Hill PACT – November Meeting Notes

Today I attended the Church Hill PACT meeting to hear from the community, Borough Councillors, police and one of our County Councillors, Tom Baker-Price.

Cllr Baker-Price reported that Sandhurst Close is due for resurfacing in the next financial year, which is great news for residents there.

Cllr Pat Witherspoon updated everyone on works around the play area near Northleach Close, which is to be updated and have its fencing improved along with some work to the pool there.

The police reported action taken around abandoned cars and that they are dealing with concerns raised about youths skateboarding on the roads in traffic, putting themselves and others at risk.

The next meeting will be on 6th December, and then next year the meetings will be moved to a bi-monthly footing. This is because not enough issues are being brought forward and attendance at these meetings by the public is low.

So I do urge everyone in Church Hill to make use of these meetings to bring up concerns about their area so that the councillors, police and their partners can work on them right away.

  1. I usually attend , but last night was feeling extremely tired due to angina attack the night before .
    I have been trying for several months to get someone to agree with me for the need of a 7 1/2 tonne weight limit up Rickyard Lane . There is absolutely no reason for article vehicles to use Rickyard Lane as there is a perfectly suitable alternative way around Paper Mill Drive . All we need is a sign costing £ 1500 for safety reasons . No attics to cross bus lane …. Very Dangerous

    1. Hi Robert. Sorry I missed you, are you feeling better? Tom Baker-Price updated the meeting about Rickyard Lane, though I think it’s the County response that you will have heard before. I understand that more evidence would be needed to build a business case for the change you’re asking for. I’d be delighted to meet with you to look at how we can gather this evidence and how we can move this issue forward. We can do this over a coffee/tea if you like. If you’d like to set something up my email is [email protected]
