NORTHWOOD PARISH COUNCIL REPORT – NOVEMBER 2016

.

News from the November meeting of Northwood Parish Council:
.
PHONE BOX
British Telecommunications plc (BT) had notified the IW Council of their formal consultation process regarding a programme of intended public payphone removals. This process would also provide local communities with the opportunity to adopt a traditional red ‘heritage’ phone box for £1, if they deemed it appropriate to do so. The payphone outside the Sub Post Office in Pallance Road had been earmarked for removal. Only six phone calls had been made from the payphone during the previous 12 months. Councillors highlighted the poor mobile phone signal received in Northwood stating that the area fell within the 2% of the country that could not obtain either 3G or 4G coverage. It was decided that no objections be raised to the removal of the payphone outside the Sub Post Office in Pallance Road; in addition the Parish Council agree to not proceed with the adoption of the traditional red ‘heritage’ phone box. In the event the payphone outside the Sub Post Office in Pallance Road being removed, BT be requested to improve the poor mobile phone network coverage in Northwood, so to ensure that the emergency services were able to be contacted at all times.
.
INCIDENCES OF ILLEGALLY PARKED CARS

The clerk advised that she had contacted Mr Metcalfe, the Chief Executive of the IW Council and also Island Roads, as instructed, outlining the perceived problems. However, prior to any response being given, Cllr J Nicholson had informed that with the intervention of the police, the cars had moved and the problem gone from the location in question to another outside of the Ward. Island Roads had advised Cllr J Nicholson that they do now lift those cars that had been abandoned or found without Tax, MOT or insurance.
.
PICNIC TABLE

One picnic table had been received from the HM Prison, with the other due to be delivered towards the end of November. Due to its weight it would need at least four persons to lift it into the correct position on the play area. Cllr Pullen advised that he had a number of bolts and fixings that could be used to secure the picnic table. Cllr J Nicholson mentioned a local resident who had suitable lifting machinery and had volunteered to assist where necessary in the village. Cllr Pullen would liaise with Cllrs Smith and J Nicholson regarding the installation.
.

FOOTBALL NETS ON VENNER AVENUE FOOTBALL PITCH

The new nets had been received and installed. Following a request by the clerk, the IW Council had moved the position of the goal posts, so allowing the grass to grow back during the winter months.
.
Cllr Fuller reported that the matter of the sign at Greenways Close had been resolved; he had contacted Island Roads with regard to a number of overgrown hedges; he had been informed that the pavement, hedge and fence at the four-cross junction belonged to the IW Council. Following a complaint, Amey were looking into re-arranging their waste collection time along Nodes Road, on a Monday morning, to slightly later in the day so as not to hold up work traffic.
