EASTLING PARISH COUNCIL
The Parish Council met on 24th September 2014. It was agreed to register The Carpenter’s Arms as a Village Amenity to
protect it from sale by Shepherd Neame in the future. Highway repairs to Mill Lane were currently being carried out. The External Annual Audit had been successfully returned. There were still issues with the non-reinstatement of footpaths by Belmont in the parish. The Farm Manager would be approached and would be asked to the next PC meeting.
The next meeting of Eastling Parish Council will be on Wednesday 5th November 2014 at 6.30pm in Eastling Village Hall. Residents are always welcome to attend any meeting.
