Parking concerns and requests for yellow lines
The Parish Council has received a number of requests for new yellow lines to be installed at various locations in the village to deter dangerous or inconsiderate parking. Do you have areas you would like it to consider?
If yes then please email the Parish Office (
), using the word PARKING in the email title. All suggestions will need to be considered in terms of cost, potential effectiveness and deliverability, and we will also consult County Highways officers on technical and safety aspects, as well the local police. (15/04/19)
Bus services - your suggestions for improvements

Lucy Frazer, the MP for our constituency is asking for views on what improvements would be most welcome, for example new routes or changes to timetables of current routes,so we are gathering in suggestions. Please feed in suggestions to the Parish Office (
