November meeting of Cumbria's Local Committee for Copeland
I attended the November meeting of Cumbria County Council's local committee for Copeland this morning at Cleator Moor town hall and masonic centre.
The main decision on the agenda was to confirm the traffic orders for various parts of Copeland which have been the subject of extensive public consultation over the last few months. So, for example. it has now been formally confirmed that the waiting limits which previously limiting parking on a substantial part of Main Street, Saint Bees, which local residents told us they would like scrapped, will be - although some new double yellow lines will be applied to stop people parking at the junction of Main Street and Sea Mill Lane in ways which are a dangerous obstruction to access and sight lines.
Other changes which add extra parking restrictions where they are needed, and remove some others which are not, have been agreed in many parts of Copeland from Millom to Egremont and from Arlecdon to Cleator Moor.
The meeting also had presentations on the West Cumbria Community Forest project, from the Together We mental health support service, on Parking services and on Fibre Broadband deployment (Obviously, as an Openreach employee I declared an interest on that one.)
