Minutes of the last meeting were agreed by all and will be signed in due course
Borough Councillor Reports: The flooding from both sewage and surface water at Salcott were addressed as a matter of urgency by Anglian Water and ECC Highways, but further work needs to be carried out.
Certain enforcement issues were looked into and results are pending.
CBC Draft Local Plan meeting is scheduled for 1st February 2021 for approval of Part 1 with Part 2 approval following in late spring which includes site recommendations of which there are none in our villages.
Owing to Covid waste collections are being disrupted but all waste bags will be picked up eventually.
A suggestion of chevrons for either side when approaching the Kings Head junction would be of great benefit.
County Councillor: ECC continue to offer services the best they can but some, such as libraries, have had to close at the present time. Parks remain open, recycling is still operating fairly normally and highways repairs are still being carried out. The fallen finger post at the Kings Head junction will be repaired in due course, the recent accident there will be included in future reminders. It was stressed that the Covid rules need to be adhered to for some time yet. The nursery signage at Peldon is in the system for assessment. Flooding in Colchester Road, Peldon is being looked at for possible enforcement matters.
The Parish Council expressed huge thanks to all the hard work both the Borough and County Councillors carry out for us.
Public-Have Your Say: Enquiries were made about coastal paths and the situation as it stands was explained.
The chairman apologises for not remembering to say that she had said in the Facebook Group that she would bring up the Lodge Lane dog poo issue. We will however, look at additional signage as we don’t think we can get a new bin as the last one took so long and we will remind people, using various channels, to be responsible.
