Draft minutes of the meeting of Winstred Hundred Parish Council held at Salcott Village Hall at 7.30pm on Tuesday 11th May 2010.
Present: Frances Fergus, Jane Banks, Jinny Gale, Phil Gladwin, Lynne Simmons, Sam Knill Jones, Nicky Ellis, Kevin Bentley and 5 members of the public
Apologies for absence: Robert Davidson, Andrew Ellis
Minutes of the last meeting were agreed and signed by the chairman
Police Report: A report on crime and speeding figures was read out. Unfortunately, an extremely unhelpful person put out a notice warning drivers about a speed check that was being carried out in Peldon. We would be interested to know who did this.
Borough Councillors: Repair work to the many pot holes is still in progress.
The flooding issues at Salcott are receiving attention, the meeting with relevant bodies is to be arranged and hopefully a map of ownership of ditches and culverts will be produced.
Planning applications for Bellwood are still being dealt with and we are constantly monitoring this site and further developments within the planning and enforcement process.
The Abberton Reservoir fund for local projects is explained on their website www.eswater.co.uk and we will be submitting the cost of our website and possibly other projects. The huge heaps of concrete that have caused some complaints are only temporary.
Replacement missing road signage will be chased up.
Public-Have Your Say: The dangers of Salcott crossroads were expressed again. We have asked many times for some kind of traffic calming/signage for this spot but it has always been turned down.
Declarations of Interest: Phil for item 4.
The Annual Parish Assembly and the Parish Council AGM are postponed until our meeting on 8th June due to the Peldon parish election taking place on 27th May.
