WINSTRED HUNDRED PARISH COUNCIL

Peldon   Great Wigborough   Little Wigborough   Salcott   Virley

Draft minutes of the meeting of Winstred Hundred Parish Council held at Abbotts Hall Farm, Great Wigborough at 7.30pm on Tuesday 9th December 2014

Present: Charles Dymond (chair), John Walker, Jinny Gail, Phil Gladwin, Nicky Ellis, Rob Surface, Andrew Ellis, Robert Davidson and 3 members of the public

Apologies for absence: Bob Holmes, Lynne Simmons, Netty Knill-Jones, Kevin Bentley

Minutes of the last meeting were agreed by all and signed by the chairman

Police Report – None received other than the weekly report for the whole of Colchester.  The CALC meeting was attended by this and many other disgruntled parish councils where there was a police representative to explain the reasons for withdrawal of attending parish council meetings which, they say, is mainly due to funding cuts and they informed of the new-format meetings held every 8 weeks in 5 various locations around Colchester for the public to attend and express their concerns. Attendance numbers to these meetings will be monitored to establish their worth.

Zone Wardens Reports – None received

Borough and County Councillors – The drain cover has been fixed and the ‘No Through Road’ sign is scheduled for repositioning both at Salcott crossroads, and the missing village sign approaching Salcott from D’Arcy has been identified at last and will be reinstated in due course.

A bad patch of repair work along Mersea Road in Peldon will be reported for improvements.  Other ditch and hedge matters in Peldon and a hedge in Great Wigborough were discussed and further action will be taken.

Certain enforcement issues in all the villages will be followed up.

Public-Have Your Say – Enquiries were made for any update on the investigation of speed reduction methods for Lower Road, Peldon which will be followed up.  The rubber strips for monitoring speed were suggested as a start to establish the severity of the problem.

Declarations of Interest – None 

1.   Playgrounds and Playing Fields – at Peldon the old bark is in the process of being removed for us by the Community Team in preparation for the rubber to be installed and the signs for the new equipment are being made. We have now taken delivery of new flat swing seats which will be fitted shortly; also further hedge and ditch work will be addressed. At Salcott the new baby swing seat has been fitted and the deteriorating condition of the basketball pad has been noted for probable repair work in the spring/summer. 

2.   Peldon Hall Houses Hedge – a site visit had taken place and more questions arose as to how this should be tackled so a site meeting will be arranged with Peldon councillors for possible solutions and residents will be invited to attend. 

3.   Peldon Bus Stops/Shelter/Curbs – a site meeting with ECC Passenger Transportation Officer had taken place and he took on board all our suggestions and requirements to make these bus stops more user-friendly and it is thought that funding will be available. A specification will be drawn up for improvements needed to the brick built shelter to put the work out for tender. Suggested lighting at the bus stops was not thought to be appropriate in this rural village.   

4.   Abberton Reservoir Rights of Way – a consultation event will take place in Peldon Village Hall on Wednesday 4th February 2015 for two drop-in sessions 4 – 6 pm and 7 – 9 pm for a short presentation, fill in a questionnaire and ask any questions, refreshments will be provided. 

5.   Broadband – Salcott launch event will now be in the spring as winter months are possibly not suitable for some residents.

6.   Actions and Reminders List – updated including that Salcott telephone box is now added to the parish council insurance policy for a replacement value of £2,000 at a cost of £21.78 per annum.

Present: John Walker, Netty Knill-Jones, Lynne Simmons, Phil Gladwin, Charles Dymond (chair), Jinny Gale, Bob Holmes, Rob Surface, Kevin Bentley and 4 members of the public

Minutes of the last meeting were agreed by all and signed by the chairman

Police Report – received covering all Colchester

Zone Wardens Report – none received

Public-Have Your Say – Speeding along Lower Road in Peldon was discussed further and statistics have been collected emphasising this matter. The speed camera has been in operation but although this may deter some drivers it does not entirely solve the problem.

Borough and County Councillors: ECC will be approached to ask what options are available in an attempt to reducing the speeding in Peldon (as above).  Salcott issues regarding signs are being addressed and further missing signs in Great Wigborough will be chased up plus the request to remove a brown sign as it not relevant any longer. A ditch along Maldon Road where vehicles can drop into easily will be reported for assessing for possible solutions and likewise a section of Mersea Road in Peldon.  We are encouraged to have our say for the second consultation on the draft recommendations for the Electoral Boundaries.  We will repeat our request that all the villages of Winstred Hundred are in the same ward and not split as they are now.

Declarations of Interest: None

1.   Speeding matters – as above at Public and County Councillor

2.   Playgrounds and Playing Fields – are in good order and the Community Working Group has been approached requesting them to install the rubber surface at Moss Hay playground, hedge trimming work and removal of plastic collars on trees on Pete Tye Common and possibly ditch clearance work. Signage for the new equipment on Moss Hay will be made and erected shortly and we expressed our thanks to Robert Kean for fitting bird prevention wire above the swings.  Phil proposed, Bob seconded and all agreed for Terry to purchase the baby seat and bolts and install at Salcott playground.

3.   Salcott Telephone Box – lighting has been installed enabling the box to be insured which will be done shortly.

4.   Parish Council Thank You Letters – Names were suggested and letters will be sent in due course to those who are greatly appreciated for their voluntary contribution to the community.

5.   Peldon Bus Stops/Shelter/Curbs – following a site meeting Peldon councilors would value a site meeting with the ECC Passenger Transport Manager to explain their concerns and requests for all the bus stops in Peldon which will be arranged if possible.

6.   Abberton Reservoir – the Community Fund is now spent and there will be an open event at Peldon Village Hall in February 2015 for the public to view and discuss the proposed Rights of Way.

7.   Broadband – Salcott launch event is now postponed until mid to late January next year due to other pressing commitments.

8.   Actions and Reminders List – updated

Finances:
101797 Greener than Green – Salcott playground trees£250.00
101798 Mr B Gooding – play insp£30.00
101799 R S Pullen – expenses (phone, paper, ink, etc.)£254.20
