    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.

Apologies for absence: Robert Davidson, Kevin Bentley

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

Zone Warden Report: Thanks were expressed to Tim for the Zone’s team of continuing work in our villages and yet again the rubble dumped at Pete Tye Common car park will be removed soon. A CCTV camera is being considered. They attend the Abberton and Langenhoe Village Hall on the first Wednesday of the month from 9am to 11am for collection of garden sacks obtainable with vouchers, clear bags and food boxes. (black sacks are the only refuse item residents have to buy themselves).

County and Borough Councillor Reports: Localism is being discussed for some parish councils where for a trial period they would receive funds from Essex County Council and initiate and pay for their own works by approved contractors for local jobs such as repairing pot holes, replacing missing signage, etc.

Parts of the CBC Draft Local Plan have been deemed unacceptable by the Inspectors and currently there are 3 options to resolve the matter which are now being considered.

Public-Have Your Say: None

Declarations of Interest: None

  1. Parish Council Vacancies: 5 applicants were present for 4 vacancies (3 for Salcott and Virley and 1 for Peldon) and interviews were carried out separately and a fair points system took place for the decisions. The chosen applicants will be informed tomorrow.
  2. Playgrounds and Playing Fields: Reports for both play areas will be forthcoming. The Community Working Group have carried out a number of good clearance jobs for us, mainly in Peldon this month.
  3. Communications including Website: A working party has been set up to discuss what is considered the way forward in these modern times of social media and a meeting will be arranged hopefully to take place during the holiday period.
  4. Salcott Grass Cutting: Having received complaints about how and when the grass on Salcott meadow is cut quotations and estimates have been received from several alterative contractors which were discussed and are being considered. A decision will be made shortly.
  5. Solar Light and Plaque: The light is in situ and wording for the plaque has been agreed so will be made and erected in due course.
  6. Requests for raised curbs at Salcott and Peldon bus stops: It was agreed for the parish council to request these from ECC and the cracked pavement will be taken up by our Borough Councillor.
  7. Peldon and Wigboroughs Community Hall: The Wigboroughs’ Charity and the new combined one are coming to the final stages of completion to enable funds from the Wigboroughs to be transferred to the new hall funds. Robert proposed, Clare seconded and all agreed to give Phil the parish council’s backing and support for representation on this new committee which will be required in due course.
  8. Canvass 2018: A request from CBC to carry out the job of canvassing for people to be on the electoral register who are not at present was discussed and it was decided that it is a very responsible position and not one we would wish to put anybody’s name forward for.
  9. Colchester Community Policing Team: Suggestions for the police to come to village coffee mornings and our parish council meetings now and again and the occasional driving slowly round the villages was suggested having received a request for communication ideas from them.
  10. Actions and Reminder List – updated and to include that the PC gives its backing to a resident who will pursue fibre as an alternative for broadband. The resiting of the old VR post box at Great Wigborough has been chased up for information and time scale on the work to be carried out. The verge cutting company will be contacted.
