The main items discussed at September’s meeting were proposals for the Local Transport Plan. Each year the Parish Councils are asked for their three top priorities to be submitted to Northumberland County Council. Ovingham Parish Council has again asked that priority be given to a new bridge, as well as re-locating the 30mph sign at the approach to Ovingham from Wylam (moving it further away from the village). The Council have also asked for parking bays and/or double yellow lines around the schools to ease congestion and that there be a continuous footpath from Ovingham to Ovington.
Councillor Jordon reported that there had been quite a few responses to the recent Village Plan Questionnaire that had been delivered to each household in Ovingham. These will be collated in due course with all the others, which have since been returned. A time consuming task no doubt!
