  1. Playgrounds and Playing Fields are in good order. It was agreed by all to pay the invoice received for work up to date at Salcott playground and field and to note that alternative arrangements have now been made for both the field and playground inspection and maintenance.
    The Community Group continue to carry out good work for us with clearance at the church green area, verges along Malting Road and St Ives footpath.
  2. ECC Highways Devolution Pilot Scheme was discussed and although too late to offer our parish council for this scheme at this stage it was agreed that we wish to support the County Councillor in his attempts to resolve matters of certain small jobs not getting done owing to prioritization. We will email to say that some of the suggested works are not suitable for us but others are, the invoicing is a concern and we will request more details on how all this will be implemented.
  3. CCTV Camera options were discussed and it was agreed that a pole and sign will be erected soon.
  4. Painted Village Signs were looked at with a view to repainting and it was agreed that we should have Great Wigborough and Salcott-cum-Virley painted this time at a cost of approx. £250 each and take look at the other two in due course.

Borough Councillor: The Locality Budget and S106 monies will be looked into for funding the Salcott playground equipment area.

Public-Have Your Say: None

Declarations of Interest: None

1.    Precept/Grant 2016/2017 – following a thorough appraisal of our previous and forecasted expenses Bob proposed, Phil seconded and all agreed to increase our grant/precept for the following year by £100, taking into account the increase in housing. A company was set up by local government bodies to appoint new auditors on our behalf for 2017 onwards unless we choose to opt out which we have agreed not to do.

2.    Playgrounds and Playing Fields  – The Community Group have carried out some sterling work for us in Peldon, for which the organisers will be thanked,  surplus mud etc will be disposed of and any associated costs will be met by the parish council. It is unfortunate that work at Moss Hay has damaged the entrance but this was unavoidable and it will recover in time and be reinstated accordingly if necessary.  The vandalized Dog Fouling sign will be reinstated yet again.  The bench with a rotten leg will be addressed. Future work for the Community Group will be tree guard removal on Pete Tye Common and grass cutting outside Peldon Church possibly on a regular basis.

3.    Bradwell – Local Community Liaison Council (LCLC) Meetings – Bob will attend these meetings on behalf of the parish council to enable us to keep up to date with proceedings and inform the residents when appropriate.

4.    Emails to the PC on a variety of random subjects – distribution to all councillors and answer as deemed appropriate.  

5.    Planning Comments Process – all councillors will endeavour to follow the agreed process as written in the final draft.

6.    Neighbourhood Watch – following further interest in setting up a scheme the information received by us at the presentation has been forwarded to these residents and if an interest is still there the parish council will arrange a meeting to assist in setting up a scheme but then take no further involvement.

7.    NALC Model Code – Media Policy – subject to checking other codes and policies that we have or should adhere to for any contradictions the parish council will adopt this Media Policy at the next meeting.

8.    Actions and Reminders List – updated and noting that owing to the Parish Council’s tireless efforts the Environment Agency has agreed to carry out a Flood Modelling Study for Virley Brook. Also, there are posters on the noticeboards about drop-in sessions held by Natural England to inform of their project to improve public access along the Essex coast.
