PC Meetings

It was really great this week to hold a properly constituted Parish Council meeting with members of the public in attendance contributing well to the proceedings. 

Sadly the “Rule of six” means it will be some time before we are allowed to hold another. We will therefore be producing more newsletters to keep us connected.


Accident reporting 

Hello all residents. Following recent discussion with Kent County Council Highways it is confirmed that accidents and statistics are normally only recorded if the Police are involved, generally following serious injury.

It is advantageous to the process of replacing road furniture that KCC Highways can make a claim through their own insurers, but this can only be done if details are available. We can also maintain statistics of our own, which may well be more comprehensive than the official ones.

Can I ask therefore if residents observing an accident, particularly those at the top of the A28 pass on to me details, including Registration numbers of the cars involved, and the times and dates.

Thank you, Derek Wright
