County Councillor Report: Covid cases are reducing now, vaccinations are going well but any over 70s who have not received an invitation yet should contact their GP to book their vaccination.

Borough Councillors Reports: Thanks were expressed to Kevin for organising drain jetting and sucking out both in Peldon and Salcott.

Owing to the poor weather conditions if any refuse sacks are not collected by 5pm on the expected day they will be collected on the next appropriate week, either blue or green.

Part 1 of Draft Local Plan has been approved by CBC and will keep the number of new houses built to 920 per year. Part 2 will be examined in a couple of months, there is no housing proposed in our villages.

CBC Planning meeting is scheduled to take place on Zoom in June. There are no site visits taking place at present with regard to applications.

Council tax will probably rise as funding to services such as police will be increased.

The rainfall lately has been at least double the normal amount and therefore there has been excessive flooding everywhere.

Various matters reported to the parish council are being dealt with by CBC Enforcement.

Public-Have Your Say: Questions were asked by parish councillors with regard to planning application 210080 and a screen share was presented by the applicants to explain and discuss possible proposals which are still in early stages as yet.

Certain ditches in Peldon are blocked and the owners will be written to requesting clearance work to take place.

Declarations of Interest: None
