Dear Councillor,

9.         AIRPORT

            The SSE Parish Liaison Meeting held on 29th June, had been attended by Cllrs John Brothers and Billy Rolph, and also the Clerk.  Discussion had been on the Scoping Opinion submitted by the Airport, through UDC, prior to the coming application to increase passenger movements up 44.5mppa.  SSE were not happy with the very short timescale for comments on this and were pushing to get an extension to the dates for submissions.  However, I had myself been granted an extension of 1 day and did put in comments for both Great & Little Hallingbury PC’s on 4th July.  A copy of Little Hallingbury’s comments is attached.

            Flight paths and compensation continue to be topics of discussion at various meetings.  While all residents need to pursue their own compensation claims, we can write at any time to the CAA or NATS to complain about flight paths, noise or any other concern regarding Stansted Airport.

 

10.       HIGHWAYS MATTERS

            The Chairman and Clerk had attended the Parishes meeting held on 17th July at Leaden Roding Village Hall, organized by County Cllr Susan Barker.  Rissa Long and Chris Stoneham from Highways were also present.  Correct procedures for reporting matters for the Highway Rangers, Local Highways Panel or other general issues were explained.  Each Parish was then given the opportunity to air current grievances, some of which were answered, and some to still investigate.  It was a helpful meeting and it did show that all parishes have the same problems with Highways services.  All parishes present agreed that it would be helpful to have a monthly notification list to be able to trace reports and see what stage investigations are at, and when repairs might be made.

            Susan hopes to organize another such meeting in about 6 months time.
