Thanks for all the support last night, over 40 residents came to the meeting.
Last night P.R.A. presented three projects for approval including the Road survey application for Match funds.

( A272) and along the Shortbridge Road close to the Peacock.
Full approval was given by the parish co...uncillors with P.R.A funding this project which has been estimated at £1,000
per gate. ( 3 gates)
2) The second project was presented by Bob White ‘ Posts to be erected around the triangle opposite Piltdown pond’ This is to protect the green from vehicles parking
and driving across it.
The project again was given Full approval by the councillors with P.R.A. funding the project which has been estimated at £6,000. Allowing for 48 posts either in oak or Polymer with reflective features including labour to
secure and position the posts.
3) The third project, which is the ‘Road survey application to reduce the speed limit along Shortbridge Road and Golf Club Lane’ the councillors gave their full
approval with Fletching Parish Council funding the project. With £1,500, P,R.A. funding £1,500 and the East Sussex County Council funding £2,000 these costs are again estimates and subject to the East Sussex County Council’s approval.
The various formalities leading to approval will possibly take 12 months.
In total the Piltdown Residents Association are looking for approximately £13,500. Without these funds the projects given to us by
the Piltdown residents to act upon will not be able to go ahead, please give generously to make this happen to our Hamlet.
The Chair of P.R.A. has set out a new initiative that if every Piltdown household contributes £10 a month by Direct Debit
we will achieve our targets, please see Fund Raising & Accts for banking details. Thank you Bob White P.R.A. Vice Chairman
