Borough Councillors: The lighting at Hall Barn in Peldon has been causing problems to people in the neighbourhood. There are numerous lights, some that constantly change colour, a very bright halogen type light and many others on the house, back and front and in the grounds. CBC Planning Committee will be holding a site meeting to comprehend the full scale of the lighting and the problem to neighbours.
After a recent heavy rainfall Salcott crossroads appeared to be less flooded since certain work has been carried out there. Salcott Street though, was still flooded in places and pipe work in one particular area needs more attention. This will be followed up with the appropriate people for a positive result. As there are still problems the meeting of head people of the bodies that can help here will be chased up again.
Potholes and other complaints can be reported on the website and can also be backed up with photographs.
The bad pothole in Great Wigborough has been reported and added to the list for attention.
Public-Have Your Say: Some Peldon residents had come to the meeting to express their dissatisfaction of Hall Barn lighting likening it to Blackpool illuminations. At one time the very bright halogen light was coming on at 4am and shining directly into someone’s bedroom. The lighting can be seen from quite a large surrounding area and is totally unsuitable for this rural village.
Little Wigborough salt bin has disappeared and we would be grateful for its return from whoever decided that they need it more. This, like many others, is a bad patch when the roads are icy.
There was yet another request for Barnhall Road to be added to the gritting list which will be passed on.
