HIGHWAYS: At the recent Arlington Parish Council meeting the draft minutes reported that there were no new updates from SAGA. The cost of the sign at Bayley’s Lane is correct. The PC has asked ESCC for costings to reduce the speed limit through Arlington Village. Concerning the A27 Consultation, Councillors resolved to make the following response: ‘The Council welcomes the Highways England proposals in terms of improving road safety at the various junctions serving Arlington Parish but regrets the missed opportunity to significantly improve the local road infrastructure in the light of the emerging Wealden Local Plan’. Concerning the drainage solution for Michelham Priory Road the Highway Steward, went to site in August they are looking into the matter, and will provide an update in due course. Maresfield PC is asking if other PCs have any road safety issues with the A22 to consider having some joined up thinking and responses to the Wealden Local Plan. They feel the impact of development on the A22 is not being given enough consideration. This PC agreed the two main issues they have are the Golden Cross junction from Laughton and the junction at Coldharbour Road. The Clerk will let Maresfield know and consider working together when the revised Wealden Local Plan is known.
