PETITION: PARKING OUTSIDE THE SHOP, 207 GUILDFORD ROAD, LIGHTWATER pdf icon PDF 239 KB

    An officer comment to the following petition is included within: We are the regular customers of the above shop and we noted that on 13 November 2017 you have imposed parking restrictions in the area. We also note that you have not allocated any short term parking spaces for us to park our vehicles when we needed to shop at the premises. This is causing us great difficulty and inconvenience.

     

    The shop has been here for a long time and we find it very convenient to get urgent groceries without having to drive a long way to go to the nearest supermarket.

     

    We will very much appreciate it if you could allocate a few free parking spaces around the shop for a short time (preferably 30 minutes or so) for the shoppers and a loading and unloading bay for one vehicle

PETITION: TRAFFIC CALMING ON KINGS RIDE, CAMBERLEY pdf icon PDF 206 KB

    An officer comment to the following petition is included within: The development of Kings Lodge had a planning condition to add traffic calming to Kings Ride. At the Planning Committee meeting and in e-mail correspondence local residents were meant to be involved in the implementation of this scheme. The current scheme is not what was proposed by the local residents.

    Unelected council workers overrode decisions taken by elected Councillors. We the undersigned do not accept that this is democracy or a fulfilment of the

    planning condition. The scheme needs to be in a position that is effective at reducing speeding traffic and consulted with, and considerate to, residents.
