I start penning;

Looks like the plan will go to council on Tuesday night , as part of the traffic committee recommendations. If we get a few along to show Councillors there is concern then they may refer the plan back for more study etc. 7 pm the meeting starts, they can bring forward items so shouldn't have to wait too long.
