The question will be answered without discussion. The person who asked the question may ask one relevant supplementary question, which shall be put and answered without discussion. The person to whom a question, or supplementary question, has been put may decline to answer it. 


The following written questions have been received from Members:


(1)          Councillor Fishleigh- Greenways


Farmer Ben Carr attended the 6 July meeting of this committee to request that BHCC implement a no overnight camping ban on Greenways road in Ovingdean.

This is because his crops are being damaged by people living in vehicles. The response he received is that the Council’s highways lawyers need to investigate how to introduce a new bylaw. What progress has been made?


(2)          Councillor Fishleigh- Paypoint


On 6 July I wrote to the chair of this committee and officers to inform them that Handy Hardware in Rottingdean is open to becoming a PayPoint location.

Unfortunately, PayPoint has not been in touch with the shop’s owners.  Why is this?


(3)          Councillor Fishleigh- Valley Gardens 3


What is the projected price for the implementation of the agreed plan for Valley Gardens 3  based on 2023 building costs?


(4)          Councillor Fishleigh- Black Rock


How will the new link road between Black Rock and the marina be used over the next one, five and ten years?


(5)          Councillor Fishleigh- Drains


Blocked drains cause puddles which endanger all road users.  What is the process for identifying which roadside drains need to be cleared?
