Parish Council

The annual general meeting was very well attended with 37 residents present.  Traffic problems were discussed at length with Trevor Dove (Traffic & Transport Manager MK Council) and Police Inspector Richard Searle (Thames Valley Police).  Inspector Searle has agred to do more speed checks in the village.  Mr Dove has promised that the 30 mph signs being painted on the road would be completed by the end of the month.  

Steetley expansion plans - a heated debate took place with Tom Jones (Planning Officer, Minerals, MK Council).  Residents made it clear that they felt our village would be greatly affected by increased traffic if the closure of Longslade Lane goes ahead.
