Winstred Hundred Parish Council
Peldon Great Wigborough Little Wigborough Salcott Virley
Draft minutes of the meeting of Winstred Hundred Parish Council held at Salcott Village Hall at 7.30pm on Tuesday 8th September 2009.
Present: Frances Fergus, Jane Banks, Nicky Ellis, Jinny Gale, Phil Gladwin, Lynne Simmons, Sam Knill Jones, Kevin Bradshaw, Andrew Ellis, John Jowers, Steve Copeland and 5 members of public
Apologies for absence: None
Minutes of the last meeting were agreed and signed by the chairman
Borough Councillors: Bellwood – the applicant must sign the agreement this week or enforcement will begin but he can appeal. The roadside hedge there has been devastated and the CBC Tree Officer will be contacted, although we understand permission was given for some work to be done.
County Councillor: The Regional Assembly and the Regional Development Agency have been abolished and so strategic planning will be regrouped. When infrastructure is improved it leaves the way open for more houses to be built. The Shoreline Management Plan now gives farmers the right to maintain their own boundaries. Improvement will be made from the launch of the Rural Commission, for example more dwellings will be able to obtain broadband. Affordable Social Housing is a priority within the Local Development Framework, houses for local people and possibly with shared ownership schemes.
Public – Have Your Say: Salcott Village Hall has had some refurbishment work done with more to come from grants and fund raising events. ECC Highways will be contacted with regard to an uneven piece of pavement and CBC with regard to curb side sweeping. We will address the overgrowth at the Kings Head corner.
Rubbish in the hedge and ditch at Moss Hay was discussed also the hedge needs a good trim and we will address the problems, booking BTCV for some of the work. A footpath from the St Ives Farm side of St Ives Road was requested to be improved.
Flooding at Salcott crossroads was again an issue and will be discussed in Item 6.
The hedge on the roadside at Salcott meadow needs trimming again and will be done. The two gates at Salcott for the field itself and the play area are both faulty and do not close, this will also be done.
Declarations of Interest: None

The Parish Council wish to request that all householders put their refuse out on the correct day of the week paying particular attention to the fact that when there is a bank holiday all refuse is collected a day later than normal. Bags are easily torn open by animals leaving an objectionable mess.
