VIEW FROM SEDGEMOOR
Polly went to her first Axe/Brue Environmental committee meeting where Tony Bradford was voted in as chairman. Issues discussed were the overview of activities and environmental responsibilities, legal compliance to do with works carried out on water courses, and a long discussion took place on the removal of invasive aquatic species such as floating pennywort, parrots feather, water primrose and zebra mussels.
Double yellow lines are gradually appearing around Wedmore and so far seem to be having a positive impact. Polly has reported the state of Snipefield Lane not only to the farmers but to SCC Highways, whom have filled some of the potholes and will hopefully do the rest soon.
Polly and Will attended a members briefing at SDC about the Northgate development in Bridgwater. It is a regeneration project based on a multiscreen cinema with food and beverage outlets. SDC also launched their new digital system and branding. They also attended the full council meeting where there was a member of the public, Andy Tiller, who had brought in a petition to ensure more trees are planted to help mitigate the impacts of climate change.
Will chaired the Audit and Standards Committee for the first time in his role as Vice Chair.
Polly and Will wish all their constituents a very happy and healthy New Year
