PRECIS OF PARISH COUNCIL MINUTES held on Wednesday 28 November 2018

in the Village Hall

 

CLERK'S REPORT

·         WW1 event.  The Chairman said the event had been success and had involved a good number of local residents. The war memorial, now cleaned, had been commented upon by numerous people. It was agreed there was a need for a further 7 lamppost poppies for next year.

·         Unitary Authority. The Clerk said Notts County Council will be carrying out a consultation before any final decision is taken.

·         Playing Field Fencing.  The Chairman said one quote had been received. Another was  being sought.

 

REPORT FROM THE DISTRICT AND COUNTY COUNCIL MEMBER

·         Coun. Lawrence said the Borough had been busy in various ways, and were looking closely at the plans by Notts County Council to consider introducing a Unitary Authority.   He said neighbouring Newton parish council were looking to progress a scheme for a community centre.  He also spoke of housing schemes at Radcliffe with up to 340 houses being planned for Shelford Road, and at East Bridgford for 125 houses.

 

PUBLIC SESSION LIMITED TO 15 MINUTES

·         A resident said the suggestion that Manor Lane be considered for restricted use similar to Trent Lane at East Bridgford, would almost certainly mean an end to the bus service as it is known at present.  He said that Notts County Council had agreed to offer funding towards the village service but understood that so far the bus operator had not requested it.

·          The fact that the County had carried out an improvement scheme to the surface of Oatfield Lane was noted.

 

CORRESPONDENCE

·         Yellow Ribbon Re-enactment were to come forward in due course with a date for the suggested event to take place in Shelford next year.  The Council have agreed to pay £300 towards the event.

·         Nick Edmunds, Perfect Motion Organisation, was proposing a road running event on 17 March 2019 with Shelford on its route.  Residents would be advised of the proposed event which would affect through traffic for a short period.

·         CPRE wrote seeking support for a deposit return system for bottles etc and the Council agreed it would back the scheme.

 

VILLAGE HALL

·         Refurbishment work on the committee room was almost complete.

 

CHAIRMAN’S MATTERS

·         Two incidents of theft in the village, namely 2 electric fence units, had been mentioned in the most recent police report.

·          The requested signs for deer crossing on the top road and in respect of horses in the village, had been erected.
