Minutes of the last meeting were agreed by all and signed by the chairman
Zone Warden Report: Costs to provide and empty a dog bin were given. A countrywide Litter Pick Weekend will be 3rd-5th March 2017 and it is hoped that as many as possible will volunteer for this worthwhile event. Prosecutions for fly tipping and litter being thrown from a moving car are ongoing. Some asbestos fly tipped in Great Wigborough was reported.
County Councillor Report: Included that the analysis from the second speed survey carried out on Mersea Road, Peldon was due shortly. There are several alternatives for road improvements around the A120 that are being considered.
Borough Councillor Reports: The grant received by the parish council from Colchester Borough Council has been reduced for this next financial year. New rules for refuse collection will allow for 3 black sacks purchased by the householder to be collected fortnightly. Food boxes will still be collected weekly. Drainage works at an area in Great Wigborough where flooding occurred has been carried out to alleviate the problem. A suggestion was made for some of the Locality Budget to be spent on further items for the new hall at Peldon. ECC is carrying out maintenance work to resurface Footpath 13 in Peldon and thanks were given to Robert Davidson for his help with materials.
Public-Have Your Say: The missing fingerpost at the top of School Lane was reported as there was a near miss accident probably owing to lack of signage. A request was made for the parish council to make a statement to Natural England stating our ownership of land in Salcott and views on the suggested path routes that would have a resulting effect on matters concerning us.
