Draft minutes of the meeting of Winstred Hundred Parish Council held in Peldon Church 7.30pm on Tuesday 14th March 2017.
Present: Robert Kean, Liz Davidson, Jinny Gale, Phil Gladwin, Lynne Simmons, Nicky Ellis, Netty Knill-Jones, Robert Davidson, Kevin Bentley and 3 members of the public.
Apologies for absence: Bob Holmes, John Walker, Andrew Ellis, Zone Warden
Minutes of the last meeting were agreed by all and signed by the chairman
Zone Warden Report: Thanks were expressed to our Zone Wardens for the successful litter pick in Peldon and also for the removal of some bags that had been dumped on the roadside. Dog fouling is an ongoing concern and the parish councillors have the authority to take photographic evidence to pass on for submitting for prosecutions.
Borough Councillor Report: Locality Budget funds have been allocated for chairs for the new hall at Peldon. The parish council will take care of the money until required and will purchase the chairs for vat return which is in order. Some bags of tree tubes left on Pete Tye Common following removal by the Community Services will be taken away for us. Everyone will have had or soon to have their council tax bill along with instructions about refuse collections including that garden bags will be free but black bags will have to be bought and only3 per household will be collected fortnightly. This change is intended to encourage more recycling as we are badly falling behind on this in the Colchester area.
County Councillor Report: The parish council is pleased to see the new VAS sign installed in Mersea Road, Peldon and thanks were given to Kevin for all his hard work in achieving this which has taken much time and effort. The broken drain cover at the Salcott crossroads has been reported for attention. The A12 improvements consultation is still open for opinions, A120 is now closed. The Public Road Safety team will be asked to look into and consider a speed limit for the length of the road from Great Wigborough to Peldon for which we will probably receive an answer by May.
Public-Have Your Say: The parish council was asked to support an appeal for a development in Lodge Lane, Peldon that was refused. The parish council supported this application in the first instance so is happy to send a letter to the Appeal Inspectorate accordingly. Thanks were given to litter pickers in Peldon and for the improvements of Footpath 13 (Church Road to St Ives Road). Dog fouling is a problem in Lodge Lane particularly with bags being hung on hedges, posts etc. The parish council would like to request that these bags are either put in the appropriate bins or taken home.
Declarations of Interest: Liz Davidson for planning application no.170502.

The Peldon Village Hall Management Committee invite all to a coffee morning this Saturday 11th February. Taking place at St Mary’s Church between 10am – 12 noon cakes and refreshments will be on offer. Builders have made progress on the hall with the foundation and floor now complete. The site visit will allow you to walk through the site with the rooms marked out so you can get an idea of the layout.
No charge will be made although any donations would be welcome, since although the build is fully funded, money is still needed for fitting out of the hall.
