Items discussed included the latest planning applications (see below), the resurrection of a Community Speedwatch group for Ufford and Barnack (see note in this edition of the Parish News), the revised edition of the Ufford Heritage publication and outstanding maintenance.  PCC Highways have issued a consultation to enforce a new 40mph speed restriction on Walcot Road coming into the village from the railway bridge – this is due to safety concerns for children crossing the road for the school bus.  Currently cars are overtaking the parked bus at high speed on their way into the village.
