PARISH COUNCIL NEWS

.

Cllr John Pullen was in the Chair for the June meeting of Northwood Parish Council. Mr David Jaggar and Mr John Ward were co-opted on to the Council.
.
POLICE REPORT
In the absence of PCSO Lisa Paul, the Local Safety Neighbourhood (LSN) officer, the clerk read out her report. There had been no crimes in the area reported during the past month. One local resident had raised the issue of problems associated with parking outside of the school. However, this was generic and not specific to this school in particular. Cllr Nicholson advised that, when out canvassing, this issue had been raised. In the main this was at the start and end of the school day, when parents dropped off or picked up their offspring. To resolve the problem would be very difficult and require tolerance and understanding to agree a balanced approach.
.
Reference was also made of the traffic gridlock mentioned at the previous meeting. PCSO Paul had agreed to provide a response to the suggestion for a 1-way system to be put in place during any planned major events. The clerk agreed to write to her with a reminder.
.
MATTERS FROM THE MINUTES:
.
WW1 CENTENARY PROJECT
Cllr Pullen advised that a first meeting had been held with the volunteers who had come forward to assist. He was very confident as the team all had the necessary qualifications, drive and expertise to undertake the task. This to be an agenda item for the July meeting.
.
SEATING ON THE PLAYPARK
The clerk had written to the previous contact with regard to the memorial seat. However, her email had now been passed to the Chair of the PTA for a response. The clerk, however queried the ownership of two other seats and bench situated on the playpark, as these were also not identified within the PFI contract. The clerk was informed that the Northwood Community Partnership was formally known as the Northwood Partnership Forum. The clerk was requested to write to them reminding them of their responsibility in this regard.
.
TRAFFIC CALMING IN PALLANCE ROAD
It had been confirmed that no further plans were being considered for extra traffic calming in Pallance Road.
.
DOG BINS
Councillors were informed that the IW Council had now relocated a surplus dog bin to the junction of the cycleway with Stag Lane. Several spot checks had taken place in recent weeks to ascertain if the problem of dog waste continued. There did not appear to be a repeat of dog poo bags adorning the gate by the Medham Village pathway. Councillors suggested that ultimately the responsibility for the safe and proper disposal of dog waste lay with the dog’s owner and not the Parish Council. It was highlighted that all litter bins were available for dual use.
.
SEATING ALONG THE CYCLE TRACK
Cllr Fuller referred to the report in respect of seating along the cycle track, which had been deferred until after the commencement of the Highways PFI. Cllr Fuller suggested that as sponsorship would be required to finance the scheme he would undertake investigations with the Ramblers Association and suggested for an article to be placed in the Northwood News, to gauge interest in memorial seats being installed along the track. Additionally Cllr Nicholson agreed to inquire as to the availability of any s106 monies.
.
NORTHWOOD IN BLOOM WORKING PARTY
Cllr Pullen advised that the Working Party and any willing volunteers were to meet at the Post Office soon, so to remove all the existing planting. Further compost would need to be purchased in readiness for the summer plants, which had now been received. Due to the Wight in Bloom scheme, the Parish Council had received credits to the value of £150, which resulted in only £36.50 extra to pay. Cllr Pullen would advise the clerk when the watering contract should commence.
