(1) Broadband   – Factco, one of the   broadband fibre companies approved by Cheshire West and Chester Council,   are holding off at present due to internal contract issues, it is hoped these   will be resolved shortly.

(2 )Station   Road surface –A number of the PC and Clerk were   involved in a Team’s meeting with highways, although no positive   information or action came of this another meeting has been arranged for September.   Highways have advised to make sure every pot hole is reported, as the more   reports, the more possibility of getting this section of road moved up the   list for attention. A Freedom of Information request has been put in to CWaC   for results of surveys to this section of road, but has been refused. Another   meeting has been set up for September. Thanks to Cllr Gillian Edwards for   facilitating these meetings.

(3) SID’s -   This was discussed at the teams meeting, it was   suggested that a moveable unit, with various posts in the village to site it   on would be a better option for the village. RT to provide clerk with a plan   to send in to highways for agreement.

(4) 30 mile   hour zone – area outside the school and the Station   Road end of Ainsworth Lane, to reduce to 20 mph. This was discussed during   the Highways teams meeting. It will be looked into by Highways
