Minutes of the last meeting were agreed and signed by the chairman with one alteration at 7. obtained from ‘ECC Community Initiative Funding (CIF)’ and CBC Town and Parish Grant Scheme etc.
County Councillor: There will be money for power plants using farm waste for cheap heating for affordable housing. Lead by Environmental Agency and Natural England the shore line management plan is to be altered. The request is for wind farms not to be on land. The Regional Assembly is being abolished. There should be more incentive to land owners to supply land for affordable housing which can be part owned and for which the criteria for having one may be controlled by the village itself. Community Initiative Funds and Youth CIFs will continue. Many of the houses allocated for this part of the country have been built already.
Peldon Village Hall money granted to them in the last year’s scheme was withdrawn as their project has changed. Funding from elsewhere was confirmed as village halls are an important part of rural life. Essex is 72% rural.
Borough Councillors: There was a speed gun in operation in Peldon recently and apparently some were caught. Gritting of Barnhall Road has been requested again. There has been a request for a salt bin to be situated along The Street in Salcott. Excess water on the road by Hillside Farm in Great Wigborough will be investigated next time it appears.
Chevrons on a bend in Great Wigborough have been knocked over and will be reported to ECC Highways. The spending of the money acquired from the Abberton Reservoir expansion scheme is to be decided by a panel from the local parish councils. Liaison with Essex and Suffolk Water will be constant.
