Draft minutes of the meeting of Winstred Hundred Parish Council held at Abbotts Hall Farm, Great Wigborough 7.30pm on Tuesday 9th April 2019
Present: Robert Kean, Liz Davidson, John Walker, Phil Gladwin, Wendy Ritherdon, Jinny Gail, Robert Davidson, Kevin Bentley and 2 members of public
Apologies for absence: Dave Taylor, Netty Knill-Jones, Clare Lauwerys
Minutes of the last meeting were agreed by all and signed by the chairman
Zone Warden Report: The two dog bins at Copt Hall Lane are now installed in the correct places and thanks were expressed to the wardens for achieving this.
Borough Councillor Report: More money is being allocated to the Local Highways Panel for highways matters such as missing signage and raised curbs. Libraries consultation is over and ECC have yet to send out its decisions but volunteer workers are still being encouraged to come forward in a bid to keep some open, though the use of libraries has dropped significantly. Park and Ride users are requested to register on-line. CBC Local Plan is still nowhere near to completion.
County Councillor Report: Owing to the mild weather this winter the gritting vehicles have not been out as much as usual and many roads have been successfully repaired. More money has been allocated to pavement repairs and improvements. At long last the manhole cover in Great Wigborough has been replaced and repaired (we thanked Kevin and John Jowers for this) which apparently had to be handmade in Germany!
