PETT PARISH COUNCIL: At the council meeting held on Tuesday July 20 the items in Public Time included the following: East Sussex County Council - Cllr Maynard: There had been a change to library opening hours, which had involved a 25 percent reduction but had resulted in no library closures. The new highways contract was up and running and going quite well.

Rother District Council - Cllr Saint: At a recent meeting of the Police and Crime Panel the lack of communication between PCSOs and their local communities was raised and it was confirmed that there should be a presence at parish council annual meetings. 30mph notices would be placed on wheelie bins and this may help with traffic calming.
