Proposal to increase traffic In Crowle and Eastoft


The following is from the Keep Me Rural facebook page.

As you will note from prior posts, our nemesis 4r; have appealed the Planning decline, see attached.

As also noted by such as Vin, there is nothing really new in here other than they appear to propose to move more trucks up through Crowle & Eastoft, thinking that will dampen opposition.

It won’t.

They also note that ERYC Planning committee hearing was chaotic & biased.

They still haven’t explained who will pay £3mn to fix up Readingate, as opposed to the paltry £5k they are offering;

They claim they are an experienced, respected operator (apart from when they got convicted in Carlisle!);

They claim they are/have worked with the local community and want to be good neighbours (bit untrue that);

They still think this harebrained Traffic Management Plan cooked up by ER will work;

Hopefully AP can have this called up again by Minister, thus taking decision out of local hands. We don’t think we get any inputs but are carefully studying.

Might be time before the next Planning hearing to organise a noisy, but legal demo in the three villages, get Look North out.

Don’t be disheartened, this lot are chancers and not that good

A ticket from a Subscriber will reduce the payment to one penny a week, not including writing.

5. School Hours are—in the morning from 9 to 12 o’clock, and in the afternoon from 2 till 4 from Michaelmas to Lady Day, and from 2 till 5 from Lady Day to Michaelmas. There will be no school on Saturdays.

6. If a child be not sent to school by 9 o’clock, it must be taken back till the afternoon, and if not sent by 2 in the afternoon, it must be taken back for the rest of the day. This rule will not be enforced with regard to children who live more than a mile from the school.

9. All children belonging to this school above 6 years old must attend the Sunday School at half past nine o’clock in the morning, and also during the summer months at two o’clock in the afternoon.

The parents are particularly requested to pay strict attention to the above Rules, as so much depends upon regularity.

FTTP is reliable

Stable and always there: Fibre to the Premises is tough, and gets the job done whatever the distance. So you always stay connected.

Everyone online at once: Even if everyone at home or work is online on different devices, with fibre your broadband won’t slow down.
