County Councillor Report: A public meeting, with the attendance of ECC Officers and the Police, to discuss speeding is being arranged and will hopefully take place in July at the Peldon and Wigboroughs Community Hall. As Essex Highways Cabinet Member, a pavement scheme has been launched to spend extra money on repairing footways. The parish council will forward a list for repairs.

Borough Councillor Report: Enforcement issues are being dealt with. The Locality Budget is open for bids again and the parish council will apply for money for repairs at the playgrounds. The requested Salcott sign will be chased up yet again.

Public-Have Your Say: Residents came to explain their planning application in more detail than was first submitted to CBC and the use of an agent was confirmed as being the best way forward for a further application. A request for noticeboards to be erected at each end of Moss Hay was agreed with the proviso of taking note of visibility etc.

Declarations of Interest: Liz for Moss Hay grass cutting

  1. Playgrounds and Playing Fields – maintenance and repair work is taking place at both sites. Following a complaint about the Salcott playground, matters will be dealt with as far as is possible to deter birds and cats from spoiling the area and equipment. The Community Workers continue to carry out hedge and grass cutting jobs for us mainly at Peldon as they require basic utilities.
  2. Moss Hay Boundary – is being looked into further with the help of registration documentation.
  3. Actions and Reminder List – updated
