WINSTRED HUNDRED PARISH COUNCIL
Peldon Great Wigborough Little Wigborough Salcott Virley
Draft minutes of the meeting of Winstred Hundred Parish Council held at Peldon Village Hall at 7.30pm on Tuesday 8th March 2011.
Present: Les Lapwood, Phil Gladwin, Jinny Gale, Jane Banks, Charles Dymond, Nicky Ellis, Lynne Simmons, John Walker, Nettie Knill Jones, Andrew Ellis, Mel Wilson (Police), Jim Leask (CBC), and 2 members of the public
Apologies for absence: Kevin Bentley
Welcome: Mel Wilson and Jim Leask were welcomed to the meeting by the chairman
Minutes of the last meeting were agreed by all and signed by the chairman
Police: Mel reported of 3 thefts in Peldon and stressed the need to secure homes particularly the back door as often this is not as secure as the front door and therefore used more often by burglars.
Fly tipping is a huge problem at the moment and we are all encouraged to keep an eye out for vehicles that may be carrying builders’ rubble or other waste matter and if possible safely remember and take down the registration number, time of day and date to report to Shane Taylor at CBC on 01206 282700 who will check out if they have an appropriate licence for carrying this kind of waste material.
Speed checks continue to be regularly carried out in our villages.
Borough Councillors had requested a lower reduction in the parish grant and to be spread over 3 years but to no avail. Pot holes are now being mended quickly when reported. A certain retrospective planning application has been agreed even though it differed from an original application because CBC would not feel that they would win an appeal.
Public-Have Your Say: Potholes in St Ives Road were requested for attention.
Stones outside a property were mentioned again but it was explained that many people do this and although strictly speaking it is usually outside their property it does help to keep verges from being spoilt from passing vehicles.
