Meetings

Great Park Neighbourhood Association has a minimum of one open meeting per year, which is the AGM in April. The committee meet bimonthly and will arrange open meeting for all residents when issues arise which need everyone's involvement.
Minutes are posted up straight away, but not formally approved until the next meeting.

Committee Meeting 11th July 2016

Only 2 out of the required 3 members were present, so the meeting was adjourned and the 2 members present worked through correspondence on ongoing issues to present to the rest of the group for ratification by email. The results of the ongoing work will be minuted at the next full meeting.

With School Over Traffic and Parking Impact on EMV

A productive meeting with the school head teacher, chair of governors, council officers for road safety and travel and the chair and secretary of EMVRA.
We had the opportunity to explain the reasons for the problems within the village - lack of parking on the estate and "home zone" design.  Really there should be no school through traffic or parking within the village because of these planning constraints.  Safety on the unmarked pedestrian crossing on Prendwick Avenue was highlighted.
It was agreed to push forward, before September, on encouraging parents to use the Park and Ride, which is not as far a initial plans showed, and walking distance could be further reduced by having a pedestrian gate in the SE corner of the car park.  Council to ask consortium to do the work, which has ring fenced funding.  It was felt it would be actually quicker for parents to use the Park and Ride than get caught up in traffic hold ups on EMV.  Agreed to all think of a snappy name for the scheme. For various reasons, financial and practical (pupil adult ratios) walking bus/trains are not feasible. Nothing to stop parents doing informal arrangements.
EMVRA to provide an explanatory paragraph for the school newsletter so parents understand better the problems they can cause.
Full notes will be posted when available.
