Have a Voice - A Local Bundle

Buntingford Town Council Traffic Advisory Group (chaired by Cllr Jon Ling) is leading a new initiative aiming to resolve the increasingly troublesome parking issues impacting on retailers and residents in the Town. Common sense does not seem to prevail amongst legislators nor some vehicle owners. There are so many situations demonstrating obstructive and intrusive parking with the potential to cause serious accidents. An example is the entrance to Monks Walk where parked vehicles force traffic to move to the "wrong side" of the road on a blind bend. Let's us hope all who use this section of road keep alert and drive at a low speed.

On a much brighter note, BCS are delighted to confirm that Head Teacher Helen Loughran is the keynote speaker at our AGM on 21st April. Venue is Benson Hall and a 7 p.m. start. All are welcome whether or not they are Buntingford Civic Society members.

Good to see the portrait of Bishop Seth Ward on display at Manor House. An attractively framed biography of Seth Ward is being prepared by the Civic Society to accompany the portrait.

Those of you who attended the recent East Herts "Community Voice" meeting would have learned of the IT communication system being developed for East Herts "customers" (a.k.a. council tax payers). Improved communication is welcomed, especially if we learn that East Herts are making an effort to communicate to our Town Council and resist taking significant actions without consultation.

Part of the meeting addressed East Herts Community Safety Partnership and the thrust of the programme is very welcome, but why an earth did East Herts Planning dismiss recommendations from specialists regarding design elements with the potential as sites for anti-social behaviour and crime in the London Road development?

The good news from the Community Voice meeting was Cllr Stan Bull announcing that funds were available for local organisations. We understand that the Youth Club with additional opening hours has applied for funds to improve their facilities. Hope they are successful.

Derek K Cooper, Chairman.
