10. Moat Lane: Pothole repairs

To consider a request  received from the acting Chair of the Village Hall Trust regarding the large pot hole in the road approaching the Hall.

The Trust points out that this  road “Moat Lane is not Village Hall land nor is it highways and it appears that ownership is unknown. On this basis the trust  wondered if the repair work might be “community funded”.  It is currently a risk for the community - pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles and does need attention.  


At the moment the Parish Council is being asked to consider this in principle. The Trust are currently getting quotes for the work to establish cost and time, and hope to have these prior to this  meeting.
