PRECIS OF PARISH COUNCIL MINUTES held on Wednesday 26 July in the Village Hall

 

CLERK’S REPORT

·         Notts Best Kept Village competition.  Unfortunately the village did not get into the last four.

·         The Council were told that the major A52 road works at Cropwell Road in Radcliffe were now expected to finish in September.

·         Highways officers from Notts County Council had met earlier in the day to look at the junction of Shelford Hill after concerns about overgrown hedges.  The opinion of the County officers was that visibility could be improved at the Shelford Hill junction (looking towards Newton) by reducing the height and width of the hedge.  Farmers to be asked to cut the hedge at the worst sections to improve visibility.  This has now been done.
