Councillor Gill gave an update regarding Rowley Road Chalk Path.

Councillor Gill advised that the estimate from ERYC Highways Officer to replace the trod on Rowley Road (Chalk Path), would be £15,000.  ERYC advised if the Parish Council provided the funding, works could be built into the Calendar Year, this is due to restricted Highways Budgets for this type of work.    

Cllr Gill had responded to the Emailed quotation and advised that the chalk was gifted by Stoneledge, and the chalk would be sympathetic to the character of the area. 

Discussion took place and it was agreed to ask Highways Officer for a breakdown of the specification, materials relating to the £15,000 cost quoted.
