Residents of Congdon's Shop who are concerned that the new 40mph signs are being regularly ignored spoke to the Council and suggested a range of measures that they felt would alleviate the problems. Councillors advised them that this issue has been a matter of concern for many years and many of the measures that were suggested had already been rejected. However, the Council agreed to write the the Police asking them to implement speed checks and raise the issue with Highways again.

Update on the closure of St Torney's Church.
The Church of England Church Commissioners have written to North Hill Parish Council with a copy of a draft Pastoral (Church Buildings Disposal) scheme prepared by the Church Commissioners providing for the preservation of the closed church of North Hill St Torney by the Churches Conservation Trust. The Churches Conservation Trust (“the Trust”) shall be responsible for the care and maintenance of the building and both old and new graveyards. The Commissioners have agreed to publish a draft Pastoral (Church Buildings Disposal) Scheme providing for the closed church of North Hill St Torney to be vested in the Churches Conservation Trust (CCT) for care and maintenance. The Commissioners statutory advisors, the Statutory Advisory Committee of the Church Buildings Council (SAC) have indicated in their early advice of 17 December 2018, that St Torney’s is of outstanding quality and of high significance overall and that the church ought to be preserved in the interests of the nation and the Church of England by vesting it in the CCT. The church is richly decorated and has some significant memorials. It is a positive and dominant feature within the street scene and wider landscape. The richness and significance of the church interior means that it would not lend itself to internal subdivision.
