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

Zone Wardens Report: Litter picking equipment has been distributed to those who carry out this very valuable job in our villages and teams can be organised for a thorough blitz of particularly bad areas.

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.

PC Minutes 8th December 2015

WINSTRED HUNDRED PARISH COUNCIL

Peldon   Great Wigborough   Little Wigborough   Salcott   Virley

Website: www.winstred100.org

Draft minutes of the meeting of Winstred Hundred Parish Council held at Salcott Village Hall at 7.30pm on Tuesday 8th December 2015

Present: Liz Davidson, Jinny Gale, Lynne Simmons, Phil Gladwin, Netty Knill-Jones, Andrew Ellis and one member of the public

Apologies for absence: Bob Holmes, Nicky Ellis, John Walker, Robert Davidson, Kevin Bentley

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

Zone Wardens Report: None received

Borough Councillor: Both pot holes and the dipped road either side of the bridge in Mill Lane will be looked into.  All missing road signs will be followed up yet again.

Public-Have Your Say: None

Declarations of Interest: None

Items for Discussion

1.   Neighbourhood Watch:  Having received a small interest the people concerned will be given the information from the representative who attended our meeting to follow up further if they so wish.

2.   Playgrounds and Playing Fields:  The Community Group has carried out some really excellent clearance work on Moss Hay and will be coming again to finish. Peldon Village Hall is needed for these workers and a charge at normal rate will follow.  The footpath is looking much better as a result and refurbishment is thought not be necessary for the time being. Costing for the renewal of Salcott playground fencing is still being investigated.

3.   Salcott Flooding:  Following much correspondence and a meeting with the Environment Agency they have effectively said there is no problem.  Clearing the creek is the responsibility of neighbouring landowners who must inform the Environment Agency before carrying out any such works. The Parish Council has written to Colchester Borough Council requesting that they take into account our thoughts and concerns on this matter when constructing the new Local Plan. Having brought this to the attention of all appropriate bodies the Parish Council has explored all avenues on this matter and feels that it is unable to do any more at this time.

4.   Total Transport Project/FutureGov:  The Parish Council had previously organized a shopping bus for residents who do not have their own means of transport but this was not sufficiently used. Fortunately some people are frequently helped out by kind hearted neighbours. A scheme providing tokens for taxis for people unable to get to doctors’ appointments etc. used to be available and will be looked into to see if it or something similar is still on-going.

5.   Bus Timetable Changes/Transportation Meeting Representative:  Although the bus timetable alterations and lack of reasonable notification were considered extremely inconvenient for some people the bus companies can and do change them periodically as they feel fit in order to make connections with other routes. Transportation Meetings will continue to be attended by our representative where concerns can be aired.

6.   Transparency Code for Smaller Authorities:  Requirements for the Transparency Code were discussed and some aspects of this are already in place and others will be addressed shortly including that any correspondence, planning notifications or invoices that arrive after the agenda has been published and displayed will not be included until the following month. Also we are waiting for Essex Association of Local Councils to produce their model template for Data Protection.  

7.   Actions and Reminders List – updated and including that the website has suffered problems that are currently being addressed.

Planning Decisions:

152170Proposal: Living room and bedroom extension at Fourways Farm, Barnhall Road, Salcott
Refused
152121Proposal: Outline application for a proposed 3 bedroom dwelling at site adjacent Peartree Cottage, Rose Lane, Salcott – Approve conditional
