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 12th April 2011.
Present: Les Lapwood, Jane Banks, Charles Dymond, Lynne Simmons, Jinny Gale, Phil Gladwin, Nicky Ellis, John Walker, Kevin Bentley, John Jowers and 2 members of public
Apologies for absence: Netty Knill-Jones, Andrew Ellis
Minutes of the last meeting were agreed by all and signed by the chairman
Borough Councillors: Flytipping is a serious problem at present and CBC is working hard to clear up dumped rubbish quickly and also investigate the perpetrators so that they can be prosecuted. Pete Tye Common is constantly being targeted by offenders and had got quite untidy all over the car park. The Parish Council would like to express their thanks to the Tamblyns for making an extremely good job of clearing up all the loose bits and pieces that had been left from endless dumping and collecting.
More applications for Abberton Reservoir Community Fund should be submitted and the procedure for processing applications will be improved. It is felt that Peldon Village Hall should get a decent amount of the funds as it has and will be in the future used for communicating to the public on matters relating to the reservoir works.
The government has allocated a large sum of money for getting all the pot holes mended. In this area the materials used have now been improved and in general and where possible all the pot holes in one road are mended together.
County Councillors: The Localism Bill will probably be passed in November which will bring certain responsibilities back to community level, planning being one them. More training from CBC for parish councillors will be required. The levy on building houses will help to ensure the infrastructure is in place for new developments.
The Big Society Fund is available for rapid response for urgent needs projects. ECC has saved a large amount of money from backroom jobs rather than shutting libraries, etc.
Community Asset Transfer will release money to give back more to rural villages.
