Minutes of the last meeting were agreed by all and signed by the chairman
Zone Warden Report: Pete Tye Common car park and surrounding area is strewn with rubbish of all sorts. Prosecutions are going ahead wherever possible. If anyone is seen throwing rubbish out of a car window the owner of the car can and will receive a spot fine. Our thanks were expressed to the Zone Wardens for keeping up with the endless task of collecting fly tippings and prosecutions.
Borough Councillor Report: Thanks were expressed to Kevin Bentley and Robert Davidson for getting the Peldon bus situation sorted out with Hedingham. Unfortunately, all Hedingham buses are in service first thing in the morning and in the early evening. We will write to First to suggest that as the drivers feel at liberty to wait in the village when the tide is over the road they could oblige by filling in these gaps making the loop into Peldon just twice daily to accommodate the college children.
Fallen or missing fingerposts are in the pipeline for being reinstated.
County Councillor Report:
There will be a public meeting in June at Earls Colne to view plans and learn of the preferred route for the A120 alterations.
The increase in council tax of 2% is necessary to meet government targets and supply the ever-increasing costs of social care for children and the elderly which is the top priority for Essex County Council.
The Police are having success with recruiting Specials.
