PARISH COUNCIL NEWS

.

News from the September meeting of Northwood Parish Council with Cllr John Pullen in the Chair.

.

PCSO Lisa Paul presented the report of the Local Safety Neighbourhood (LSN) team, on events that had taken place since the last meeting.   Particular mention was made of the following:

.

Reference was made to the nuisance of mini motos along the cycle track, which had been discussed at previous meetings.  In July a Section 59 warning had been given to a young man who had been caught using a mini moto, near to Medham.  This appeared to have the desired effect, as no further problems have since been reported.

.

A couple of incidents of people trying to sell unsolicited services had been received.  PCSO Paul stressed that it was important for as many details as possible about these persons to be obtained.  In Gurnard, a local resident managed to obtain the registration number of a person’s car, which has led to the culprit being prosecuted.

.

Cllr Pullen reported that an ex-councillor living in Pallance Road had received a similar cold-call, which he subsequently reported to Trading Standards.  A representative from Trading Standards paid a very prompt visit to the ex-councillor to obtain further details.

.

One incident of fly tipping had been reported along Wyatts Lane, near to the junction with Pallance Lane

.

PC Martin Egerton had recently been appointed in the Cowes area.  It was hoped that he would attend a future meeting of the Parish Council.

.

Reference was made to the letter that the three local council’s involved in the Bus Route 32 had received from Matt Kitchen, the General Manager of Southern Vectis. The letter indicated that the well-used Route 32, Saturday service was not part of the Community Bus contract and at present was running without funding.  As this was considered to be no longer tenable, Southern Vectis proposed to terminate the service from  October 27th . Cllr Riddet, after having discussed the matter with Cllr Ian Ward, Secretary  of the Community Bus Partnership, was pleased to report that sufficient finances were available to maintain the service for at least the next year.
.

The Parish Council had retained over £3000 received from donations, which could also be made available to the Partnership to ensure the service continued.

.

Cllr J Pullen advised that during September  arrangements were made for the winter planting to be delivered in October.  The costs would be contained within the allocated budget.  Volunteers were requested to assist with the clearing of the tubs/planters and subsequent replanting.
.

A grant of £50 was approved towards the cost of installing new double-glazed windows in the WI hall, with regret that the amount could not have been more significant.

.

The comments and marks awarded to Northwood in the Best Kept Village awards were noted.  The Chairman advised that although not a winner in the main competition, it had been announced that Northwood was to receive a small award for the lovely tubs and planters around the village.  The Chairman and a member of the Community Partnership  attended the  awards ceremony last month.

.

NORTHWOOD’S FUTURE! – YOUR FUTURE

.

Northwood Parish Council is to carry out a Neighbourhood Plan. This will be a legal planning document which will need the approval of the Community and form a significant part of the IWC Planning Department’s Core Strategy. It will set out a vision as to what the people of Northwood want  the community to be like to live and work in the coming years.

.

A QUESTIONNAIRE will be delivered to every household in the Parish during October/ November. The results will be collated by the Island Council before Christmas.

.

Council Chairman, John Pullen, said, “Everyone’s input is very important, please ensure you take time to complete the  QUESTIONNAIRE”.
