NORTHWOOD PARISH COUNCIL REPORT – JANUARY 2016

.

The Report appearing in the February 2016 edition of Northwood News

.

POLICE REPORT

In the absence of any representative from the Local Safety Neighbourhood Team, the clerk read from the report she had received. Particular mention was made of the following:
One crime had been recorded for the month of December. Unfortunately, no details had been provided so to enable any comparison to the number of crimes committed the previous year. It was also noted that the crime reports service had ceased. PCSO Howard had suggested looking at the website Police.uk.  However, this site had not been updated since November.
.
A Speeedwatch activity had taken place early in the morning of Monday 21 December, along Pallance Road. Three vehicles had been recorded as breaching the limit, travelling at 35mph or over. The next activity would take place on 7 January.
.
Details of the three Community Priorities set by the PACT and of the Hampshire Alert free web based system were mentioned again, but these had been reported to earlier meetings.

.

MATTERS ARISING

Chawton Solar Farm – The requested information had been supplied to Lightsource, on 8 December, with regard to their kind offer of a one off community benefit payment of £5K. As an acknowledgement and/or further information was still awaited the clerk was requested to make further inquiries.
.
Posts at the top of Uplands Road – Following the meeting in December, Island Roads had confirmed that an inspection of the posts had been undertaken and any necessary replacements would form part of their works programme.  A white cross had been placed on a few of the posts, suggesting that they were to be removed and new ones inserted. The works were to have been carried out by the end of December. In a telephone conversation with Island Roads it had been advised that the posts were on order and their delivery due shortly.
.
Draft MOU with Northwood Community Partnership – Two copies of the revised MOU, together with a list of the Partnership’s known assets, had been sent to the Secretary of the Community Partnership for the signature of their Chairman and return to the clerk. This was now to be discussed at their meeting later this month. The clerk advised that she had received an initial report from the builder of the Noticeboard, outlining its condition and the necessary works required to bring it back to its original condition. This would enable quotations to be obtained for its refurbishment. Due to its poor state this work could potentially cost upwards from £350, although no firm prices were provided. In the meantime, the builder had offered to undertake a number of minor works, subject to a maximum cost of £20, to cover the necessary fixtures and fittings. This work would be completed on receipt of the formal agreement of the MOU.
.

WELCOME TO NORTHWOOD BOOKLET

An example was shown for the proposed new parish map, to be used in the revised “Welcome to Northwood” booklet and updated Parish Plan. Councillors unanimously supported the idea that a quote be obtained for a digital copy, which could then be uploaded onto the new parish council web. It  was  agreed, that due to the specialised nature of providing the proposed parish map, Financial regulations be suspended and only one quotation be obtained. The cost of a new parish map be financed from the Parish Plan update budget.
