  1. Please note that the Annual Town Meeting has been delayed from Wednesday 24th March 2021 until Tuesday 1st June 2021 due to Covid issues.
  2. To inform members of the public the Council are looking at over 30 projects which could be commenced in the Town as developer monies may be available.  More will be known in May as to the availability of monies and we will update this site at that time on the Council decisions.
  3. The Town has been working to prevent unauthorised encampments after many sites were invalid last year.  The invasions caused much distress to residents and costs to the Council.  It is hoped the defences will prevent further problems.
  4. There has been much online discussion in respect of the Toll Bridge at Eling but the Council would wish people to know that this arose only from the Council quite rightly looking at the public having best value and continuous improvement but that no decision has been taken and none will be taken until an in-depth investigation and report is submitted to Council. Council Members who obviously will make the final decision.
