Minutes of the last meeting were agreed by all and signed by the chairman
Zone Warden: Great Wigborough has been swamped with 3 large loads of fly-tipping and they are being dealt with by various land owners and the zone warden, who has also been sifting through it all for evidence for prosecution.
A new bin has been ordered, using Borough Councillor Locality Budget funds, to be situated at the end of Lodge Lane owing to the fact that dog walkers frequently throw their poo bags in the fields and hedges along Lodge Lane as they walk home. A kind resident has offered to empty this bin to avoid the cost that CBC would have charged the parish council for the service.
County and Borough Councillor Reports: ECC council tax is to rise by 3.99% equivalent to £60 per Band D property, for which a large proportion is spent on social care. CBC are to discuss their budget next week.
The role of ECC Police and Fire Commissioner is up for election this May.
CBC Free Tree project has many more trees to give away this year and residents and landowners are encouraged to apply to [email protected] for collection at the Western Stadium site on 22nd February 2020.
Public-Have Your Say: A resident from Salcott has offered to collect 50 trees on behalf of the parish council and a parish councillor who is a land owner has offered for them to be planted on his land.
This resident has also taken an interest in being a Tree Warden for the parish and so her details will be passed on accordingly.
The parish council has received a complaint about an inconsiderate horse rider using a footpath designated to walkers only.
