• At the Parish Council meeting Chris Niblock was thanked for his commitment and hard work during his time as a Councillor and Chairman following his resignation.

During the public participation section of the meeting John Walton confirmed that over 150 residents were supporting measures to create alternative traffic arrangements during the construction of the 120 houses north of Dark Lane to those currently proposed. He will join the Parish Council working group who will liase with the LDC Planning Department to agree a traffic plan that will cause the minimum disruption to the village. It was also resolved that a consultant be engaged to help the group address concerns with the developers and propose viable alternatives.

County Councillor Tittley reported on the work he was doing with surrounding villages with regard to traffic calming, including providing radars to find speeding hotspots, preventing HGV’s accessing certain roads and installing CCTV cameras to catch offenders on police watch lists. To help reduce speeding in Alrewas it was resolved to introduce the Speedwatch initiative into the village. The Parish Council will be requesting the help of residents to identify speeding hotspots and looking for volunteers to be trained in the use of the mobile speed cameras.
