  1. HIGHWAYS AND ENVIRONMENT

The meeting was attended by Mr Ben Wilcox-Jones. Mr Wilcox-Jones picked up from previous concerns that he had taken from previous meetings particularly concerning speeding vehicles through the village. Mr Wilcox-Jones explained that the County Council was constrained in Highways legislation in terms of what measures it could introduce. Llanfair DC was in the plan for roll out of the 20mph and advisory signs would be placed in the village by the school, as had been recommended by the Police. It was reported that these had been recently erected and that they had led to confusion for motorists who were faced with conflicting signs over short distances. Mr Wilcox-Jones advised that the effect of these signs would be monitored over a year or so and they would then be reviewed. Mr Wilcox-Jones asserted that the County Council was sympathetic to the problems and was determined to work with the Community Council to see what could be done. He also advised about the Community Speed Watch initiative by North Wales Police. Steve Whipp advised that he had volunteered and was to be trained shortly.

RESOLVED-That the comments of the Clerk and correspondence be noted.

Minute 213.1 That Mr Wilcox-Jones attend future meetings as appropriate to update the council.
