CBC Drainage Officer has made a site visit to the area where a large puddle forms on the road in wet weather in Great Wigborough and subsequently work on an adjacent ditch will be carried out. The CBC Local Plan consultation period has been extended and the parish council will put in their comments during the summer. The Settlement Boundary Revue will be circulated.

The Parish Council wishes to make clear that any clearance work of any kind of vegetation on Pete Tye Common would need expressed approval from the landowner. Furthermore, any such work at this time of year would almost certainly be breaking the law under the Wildlife and Countryside Act.
