Letter from our Borough Councillor

The Gardeners Club Annual show was another great success and I enjoyed looking at all the exhibits. Residents of Shadoxhurst really do have green fingers and there are some budding cooks amongst the gentlemen of the club! ABC is now embarking on a strategy for providing pitches for gypsies, travellers and show people as there is a requirement to provide 30 pitches by 2016. I anticipate the officers will have a difficult time locating sites but we will have to see what emerges. For a long time the planning laws have restricted parking provision in the town and all applications had to be determined on the central policy. Now, however, there is an opportunity for ABC itself to create its own parking policy in the new built-up areas and I shall be pressing for two spaces per dwelling as we currently have in the rural areas.
