No progress due to the Christmas break, this would be discussed at the next meeting.
127.To consider a ‘20 is plenty for Staffordshire’ scheme
Cllr Meikle had done some research. The general view was that it might be expensive – Cllr Meikle was trying to obtain better costings and an example of a questionnaire. Funding might come from the Safer Roads Partnership. This would carry over to the next agenda when Cllr Meikle may have more information. Apparently Staffordshire County Council was not actively supporting the scheme.

He had agreed with Steve Keey on how to plan out and sow the wildflower seed (on a minimum tillage basis to save carbon). Cllrs were asked to let him know if they had a preferred grassed area to be sown.
