question around whether the notice boards have been brought up to a suitable

and to shave it off too soon could lead to water ingress.
Bridge at Dovenby - this is
scheduled for replacement imminently.
Trees - It was noted that there
are trees growing both sides of the wall linking the beck to the M Sport and
these could present a danger of the wall falling. Contact Mr Mullen to
Junction at Dovenby- it was
noted that the trees at the junction are starting to obscure the visibility
for motorists wanting to join the main road.

investigate further on behalf of the PC to see if this may be applicable to
junction and will report at the next meeting.
