I gave a position statement as Lead member for Children and Families.

There was a joint Liberal Democrat/Conservative motion regarding 'Safe Passage 'Our Turn' Campaign that was unanimously approved.

There was a joint Labour/Conservative motion regarding secondary school transport that was also unanimously approved.

Local Divisional Issues:

I attended Parish Council meetings for Market Bosworth and Sheepy,

Individual constituent Casework in Parishes currently stands at 2 in Stoke Golding, 2 in Sheepy, 1 in Nailstone, Shackerstone, Twycross, and Higham on the Hill.

I have visited 3 constituents in their homes to listen to issues of concern, and to try to bring about resolution and liaised with County Hall regarding 12 parish issues.

There are concerns about the parking outside the Water Park, where visitors will park on the B585 rather than pay the parking fee. Although the Police and Highways are involved, at present no resolution appears imminent.

The application of the Planning Policy approved by the County Council has already thrown up an issue. Where officers respond to a planning application that would involve 106 contributions towards a community library, there doesn't appear a protocol for seeking the views of the volunteers who actually run the library before submitting a claim.

Similarly, although 106 money is needed for additional school places, where there are viability issues our view is that the development should not be given planning permission if it isn't financially viable.

I have been lobbied by D B Symmetry regarding the Rail Freight exchange, and received communication from Hinckley & Bosworth regarding a review of Polling Districts.
