11914 Receipt of Information about Matters Arising from the Minutes of Previous Meetings, not Covered by the Agenda
11778 – Councillor Bond noted that the planning appeal for the former Leeds Children’s Holiday Camp has been upheld and that this puts the future of the AONB Development Plan Document (DPD) in a difficult position.

11915 Matters Raised by Members of the Public for Future Consideration
The following matters were raised:
1. the ‘Furness’ style benches have been delivered to Friends of Silverdale Station (FOSS) and it is hoped that they will be installed on 6th June at their Volunteer Day when Northern, the Cumbria Community Rail Partnership and Network Rail are sending personnel to work free. Other jobs will also be carried out that day, including installing the equipment for connection to Wi-Fi (the Broadband for the Rural North have supplied the equipment at no charge). Notices will be put up promoting the Volunteer Day and the resident asked if a representative from the parish council would attend. A request has been made by email for a financial contribution from the parish council towards the cost of paint etc [see correspondence item (m) below];
2. the location of the new board walk at Hawes Water does not (it is thought) offer the best views. There was debris left after some trees were felled at Gait Barrows and the timber moved. A complaint about the closure of footpaths on the site;
3. notification of the next stage of the AONB DPD consultation having started;
4. proposals for a bridge across Morecambe Bay;
5. the drains along Emesgate Lane seem to be full permanently;
6. when ambulances for Bleasdale School are parked outside the Gaskell Hall they block in any cars in the parking bays there;
7. the bus timetable displayed by the school is incomplete;
8. an instance of when the bus left before the train had arrived at the station leaving train passengers stranded;
9. comments around the retrospective planning application for 15 Cove Road;
10. traffic speeding on Cove Road;
11. overnight parking at the Cove.
11916 Police Report
PCSO Shepherd responded to the issue of speeding vehicles raised in item 11896 above – he explained that where a stretch of road meets certain criteria the Traffic Officer carries out a risk assessment – he will speak to the Traffic Officer about Cove Road. He also suggested that the parish council consider starting a Community Roadwatch Scheme – Councillor Houghton asked PCSO Shepherd if he would send brief details of how the scheme works for publication in the parish magazine or parish council minutes. Councillor Bennett cited the junction of Cove Road and Elmslack Lane as an area where he has noticed drivers speeding.
Only one incident in Silverdale was reported in April – the theft of greenkeeping and grass cutting equipment from Silverdale Golf Club. The equipment has been recovered and investigations are being carried out as to the perpetrators. There have been a number of reports of vans being broken into in the hope of finding tools – mainly in the Carnforth area.
Councillor Houghton asked if the police would look into the issue of vehicles being parked on the footpath along Shore Road – the vehicles cause an obstruction and pedestrians are having to walk in the road to get past them. It is thought that many of the vehicles belong to residents. PCSO Shepherd offered to do a letter drop along Shore Road.
PCSO Shepherd advised that there are now 4 PCSOs covering the Carnforth area (which includes Silverdale); he will forward the email addresses of the local Officers to the Clerk.
11917 Report from City Councillor Nigel Goodrich
Councillor Goodrich was not present at the meeting, but had sent a report which Councillor Bond read out: 1. Lancaster CC are rethinking the scheme to redevelop the area known as Canal Corridor North – the scheme will be smaller; 2. he has been in communication with Councillor Bennett, a local resident and the RSPB about the bin and gate on Cove Lane.
It was noted that the bin outside the Gaskell Hall is looking untidy. RESOLVED that the Clerk ask Councillor Goodrich if this can be replaced.
11918 Report from County Councillor Philippa Williamson
Councillor Williamson reported on: 1. progress regarding the parking restriction outside the Co-operative store – the restriction has been approved and the timing of the restriction is being considered; 2. plans to carry out road safety measures at the junction of Nineteen Acre Lane and the A6 although no date for the works has been given as yet (Councillor Bond asked to see a draft of the proposed works); 3. potholes – temporary repairs are due to be carried out to potholes in the Carnforth area on 8th and 9th May (if the weather is dry); 4. complaints about litter along the A6 northbound from Pine Lake – Lancashire County Council (Lancs. CC) and Lancaster CC are organising a litter pick; 5. Carnforth station ticket office – a small working group has been formed to discuss its future and widening its role – Councillor Williamson has met with various organisations to discuss funding options; 6. Foster Care Fortnight 2018 (14th – 27th May); 7. working with Councillor Joan Burrows, the Lancs. CC Older People’s Champion, and Over Kellet school where the children are putting on an afternoon tea for local residents.
