NORTHWOOD PARISH COUNCIL REPORT – SEPTEMBER 2015

.

JOINT
Cllr Riddet advised that an informal meeting between the clerks and Chairmen of Cowes Town Council, Gurnard Parish Council and Northwood Parish Council had been called by Cllr Jones, the mayor of Cowes Town Council.  The meeting would provide an opportunity to discuss the possibility of clustering for the delivery of some discretionary services from the Isle of Wight Council.  Issues regarding recent roadworks undertaken by Island Roads in the area would also form an item for discussion.  Cllr Riddet agreed to report back to the October meeting.
Mention was made that initially a quarterly meeting between councillors and the District Stewards had been planned, where any problems could be highlighted.  As these had not taken place for some time, Cllrs J Nicholson and Fuller agreed to try and reinstate this initiative.
.
MEDINA VALLEY ACTION PLAN  
Notes of the meeting of the Medina Valley Area Action Plan held in July had been circulated by email prior to the meeting.  The draft Area Action Plans should be available for public consultation in September/October.  Mr Ollie Boulter, of the Planning Policy unit planned to hold back-to-back briefing sessions with parish and town council representatives prior to this taking place.
.
COMMUNITY WELLBEING
Councillors noted the update report provided by Cllr J Nicholson on Wellbeing Development.  Reference was made to his planned visit, with Prof. Elkheir, for later in the month to meet with Prof. Steve Peters, of Chimp Management.  The launch of the ABCD scheme took place on 27th August for the Northwood, Cowes and Gurnard areas.  It was viewed as a driver or principal enabler for the My Life a Full Life programme.  This initiative was building momentum delivering significant results through the encompassing Vanguard programme.
.
COWES LIBRARY
The  Council expresses concern on any suggestion to reduce the opening hours of Cowes library to less than the 24.5 currently operated.  The IW Council was urged to make every effort to seek volunteers from the community to continue with the existing level of provision.
 .
PICNIC TABLE VENNER AVENUE PLAY AREA
Cllrs J and M Nicholson advised that Storeroom 2010 had referred them to Sue Wendes, their Educational Coordinator.  Exact details were required both in terms of quality of wood and size, so that a quotation could be provided to enable a comparison to be made with the picnic table installed on Gurnard Green.
It was decided that Cllrs J and M Nicholson obtain a quotation from Storeroom2010 to enable a judgement to be made on the purchase of a picnic table taking into account quality and best value.
