6.      REPORT FROM RAF LAKENHEATH
Squadron Leader Seymour stated that twenty percent of military personnel serving in the Middle East and Iceland would shortly return home via. RAF Lakenheath. As a result, air traffic is expected to increase from November 2003 onwards. Also, evening airborne activity will extend until 2100hrs.
The Chairman, Cllr Ms J S Bourton, was recently invited onto the RAF Lakenheath Base to meet the new General. He is reputed to be community focused and improvements in that area are anticipated. The General will also encourage more visits by Councillors onto The Air Base.
There is ongoing protest action around the Base. A peaceful vigil ensued yesterday involving approximately 50 to 60 protesters. Events deteriorated today with police arresting 11 protesters for disorder and criminal damage offences.
Lords Walk is expected to remain closed. The route of an alternative footpath has been found, which may lay the foundations for Lords Walk to become permanently closed.
Squadron Leader Seymour took questions regarding unacceptable noise from low flying aircraft over Brandon during the early hours. He was adamant these aircraft were not using RAF Lakenheath and suggested the Mildenhall Air Base could be responsible. The Squadron Leader could not give any clear answers to further probing questions about this matter.

7.     TO RECEIVE REPORTS FROM COUNTY COUNCILLORS AND/OR DISTRICT COUNCILLORS
Apologies for absence from County Cllr Mr Bill Bishop.
Nothing to report.

8.       PUBLIC FORUM
Mrs Betty Burke: voiced concern about rumours that houses are to be built on Sandgalls, London Road, Brandon. Councillors reassured her that no planning permission was being sought.
Mr Peter Ridgewell; was disappointed that the Town Council election for Thursday 9 October 2003 was not advertised in the Brandon Life. – Others present pointed out that notices had been posted at various locations in Brandon, poll cards sent to every eligible elector and articles published in every local and regional newspaper.
Mr Ridgewell also asserted that people are against having the London Road/Old Forge Court bus stop relocated on an ‘out of town’ site such as Tescos’. This would entail a much too lengthy walk, especially for elderly folk.
He also claimed some residents do not have enough space to store an extra wheelie bin under the impending Blue Bin Scheme. Elderly people will also struggle having to drag two bins onto the street to be emptied. In addition, the grey/black wheelie bins will smell when only emptied every two weeks.


Proposed by Cllr Mr P Baldwin and seconded by Cllr Mrs S Jureko.
