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 11th Sept 2012.
Present: John Walker, Lynne Simmons, Jinny Gale, Phil Gladwin, Nicky Ellis (chair), Jane Banks, Charles Dymond, Andrew Ellis, 1 Police Officer and 4 members of the public
Apologies for absence: Kevin Bentley, Netty Knill-Jones
Minutes of the last meeting: with the alteration at item 3. Code of Conduct, at the end should read ‘one Parish Councillor on the Complaints Panel who should have a vote’, was agreed by all and signed by the chairman
Borough Councillors: The online complaints procedure for ECC Highways is not being dealt with satisfactorily in many cases. County Councillor Kevin Bentley has party to a hot line for complaints so please phone or email the clerk with problems to be passed on. It was brought to Andrew’s attention for investigation that holes in the roads are not always being filled before resurfacing takes place and loose chippings following resurfacing are being wasted. Also the temporary signs for loose chippings are being left too long after the job has been finished and get knocked into the road causing obstructions.
Andrew will ask the head of Zone Wardens for a meeting with us to explain their roles within our community. Also we would like to know the cost from CBC of the Zone Wardens particularly as our precept/grant is being cut.
The missing Salcott-cum-Virley sign from along Colchester Road will be followed up and also CBC Simon High will be contacted for an update on drainage problems in Salcott and the poor state of the road in Salcott and bridge and road on Mill Lane in Virley.
Public-Have Your Say: Concern was expressed about speeding along Lower Road, Peldon. Training for speed gun use will hopefully be taking place shortly. There was a suggestion for the triangle of grass area at the beginning of Peldon coming from Wigboroughs to be improved but this, unfortunately, is out of our hands as it is privately owned.
