Borough Councillor Report: CBC Planning Department is struggling to keep up to date owing to a shortage of workforce. The Chief Executive is retiring and applications for the position are now being accepted. CBC is now operating a click and collect system for extra bins, bags. etc. Mersea Council Office being one of the collection points. The parish council soldiers are still out for this year but will be collected later in the year for storage and safe keeping.

County Councillor Report: ECC is dealing with climate change and one of the projects is an aim to have electric car battery charging points in all towns across Essex. Levelling up and equal opportunities is another main focus with deprivation in all forms such as education, living affordability including giving out meal vouchers for eligible children, isolation with regard to lack of accessible amenities and public transport.

Public-Have Your Say: None

Declarations of Interest: Liz Davidson for item 1. grass cutting.

1.  Playgrounds and Playing Fields

  • Salcott playground and field are in good order.
  • Peldon new playground project began this week and so the field may suffer from vehicles being driven on it but will recover in time.
  • Special thanks were expressed to James Faulkner and Gary Taylor for their brilliant dismantling and disposing work. A small charge was agreed and will be paid for labour.
  • The new Peldon playground will be opened by Robert Davidson, Colchester Mayor with as many local children in attendance as possible to help with the opening. We will have a better idea shortly of when this might be for advertising purposes.
  • Quotes for grass cutting have been received and it is hoped for more and then will be discussed via email so that a decision can be made reasonably soon.

2.  Speed Camera:

We will revisit the possibility of purchasing a Radar Speen Sign for somewhere in the parish in the new year when we have a clearer vision of the total cost of sign and installation and therefore, affordability.
