Heavy Commercial Vehicles in Transit


Mr Stewart reported that a meeting with Councillor van de Ven and Cambridgeshire County Council had taken place regarding the imposition of a weight limit for transiting heavy commercial vehicles with a sign on the A1198 for traffic turning to Whaddon at Whaddon Gap and coming through Meldreth. Further discussions with Whaddon Parish Council will take place.


Junction of Whitecroft Road/Station Road A proposal has been received from a member of the public to re-align this junction. It was reported that the proposal, as it stands, may not meet with Highways’ approval and it was suggested by Mr Searles that the proposal be forwarded to the Highways Department to ask for their suggestions on how traffic can be slowed down when approaching Whitecroft Road via the bridge on Station Road.


Holy Trinity Church


Tree work in the churchyard is to commence at the end of February in order to make the trees safe.


Parish Paths Partnership


Surveys of all footpaths in Meldreth were carried out over Christmas and New Year by the Parish Paths Group.


Councillors' Reports


Mr Burlton reported complaints that there is inadequate lighting (see letter in December 2012 Meldreth Matters) along North End and Chiswick End, which is more noticeable following the new street lights installed by Cambridgeshire County Council (CCC) elsewhere in the village. The clerk explained that the lights along North End and Chiswick End are not the responsibility of CCC, as they are defined as footway lights (i.e. further apart) and come under the remit of either South Cambridgeshire District Council or the Parish Council. The cost of replacing these lights with the new brighter lights would fall to the Parish and could be considered as an ongoing project via Council tax if there is a demand from residents in these areas.
