Draft minutes of the meeting of Winstred Hundred Parish Council held at Abbotts Hall Farm, Great Wigborough at 7.30pm on Tuesday 14th February 2017.
Present: John Walker, Bob Holmes, Liz Davidson, Phil Gladwin, Lynne Simmons, Netty Knill-Jones, Robert Kean, Andrew Ellis, Kevin Bentley, Zone Warden and one member of the public.
Apologies for absence: Nicky Ellis, Jinny Gale, Robert Davidson.
Minutes of the last meeting were agreed by all and signed by the chairman.
Zone Warden: A speed gun check carried out in Peldon revealed several speeding. There has been a substantial increase in fly tipping recently and prosecutions will be carried out whenever possible. Black refuse bags now have to be bought by residents. Details of refuse collections etc. are on the CBC website. There is a litter picker operating in Salcott.
Borough Councillor: CBC Local Plan is subject to further consultation hence the slightly lengthened timetable. Recently received correspondence from ECC Highways with regard to a strip of land in Great Wigborough will be forwarded to Essex Wildlife Trust at Abbotts Hall Farm and our reply will be to suggest they take back ownership of the land as former owners and as it’s opposite their main entrance. Complaints from the parish council concerning certain planning notifications not being received will be taken up with CBC on our behalf.
County Councillor: Correspondence received requesting a speed limit on the stretch of road between Great Wigborough and Peldon will be taken to the LHP meeting but it maybe that a limit just at Little Wigborough would be more likely to be given the go-ahead. Throughout the county social care has increased by 3% and a huge proportion of the council tax is spent on that. The Police are now using a program on their phones to elevate paperwork for reporting and following up crimes giving them more time to be on the streets. Two consultations with various ways for improving the A120 and the A12 are on the ECC website and participation by all is encouraged. A broken manhole cover at Salcott crossroads will be reported for repair. Two missing fingerposts in Great Wigborough have now been reinstated.
