Arundel Town Council News for October

Arundel, West Sussex

Edited extracts from the minutes of the Finance and General Purposes Committee 19th July 2018

Mill Road Safety

A member of the Public emailed a question to Councillors;

“I have just witnessed an accident on Mill Road – someone going far too fast. I am astounded nothing has been done to limit the speed to 30 miles per hour or less, for the whole length of Mill Road all the way to the Black Rabbit pub and that speed humps have not been installed.

Will it take someone being seriously injured before WSCC actually do something?

In addition, I have just videoed all the parked-up cars and campervans on Mill Road restricting visibility- some of which I have observed parking overnight for free and the occupants using the adjacent fields as toilets.

Answer: This will be referred to the Traffic & Access Committee in September 2018. In the meantime Cllr Stewart will bring this up with West Sussex County Council. Other incidents were also highlighted.

Transfer of Farmers Market

It was proposed and seconded that we do take on the running of the Farmers Market. A letter to be sent to Arun District Council requesting a full explanation for the large increase to the license fees. Cllr Heriot abstained from this vote.

Proposal for Staff costing

HR committee would like to recommend that an additional person be appointed to solely concentrate on GDPR matters, sorting of online files and google docs to support the office. It is proposed that 6 hours a week be sufficient for that person to work alongside an experienced Councillor to ensure relevant documentation is stored.
