NORTHWOOD PARISH COUNCIL NEWS

FROM THE JANUARY 2014 MEETING.

.
POLICE REPORT
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:
The Speed Watch, which had taken place on December 18th in Pallance Road and other local areas: A couple of vehicles had been recorded as just exceeding the speed limit, but none were sufficient to warrant a letter of caution being sent. A further event was held last month outside the Travellers Joy. Councillors noted that a similar exercise conducted along Rew Street, Gurnard resulted in 7 or 8 letters being sent out to speeding drivers. Speed Watch was a continuing exercise with three more dates planned in the Gurnard/Northwood areas.
Pleasingly there had been very little crime committed in Northwood since the last meeting. A couple of incidents of door to door selling had been reported. This had been committed by a small group of family members, who no longer lived on the Island.

ISLAND COUNCIL ASSETS IN NORTHWOOD
Councillors were referred to the list of discretionary services, which the Isle of Wight Council had invited Town and Parish Councils to enter into joint discussions, so to consider providing an alternative means of their continued delivery. The Clerk had written requesting the past two years’ financial costings and whether pump priming was to be provided. However, no further details had been received.
It was decided that consideration of taking over of any of the IW Council’s assets or in the provision of services within Northwood form a future agenda item, when further details on the implications of so doing had been received from the IW Council.
.
VENNER AVENUE FOOTBALL PITCH
Councillors noted the response received from Mr Lee Matthews, Head of the IW Council’s Parks section. Mr Matthews advised that he was happy to support in principal (50%) of the approximate £532.00 costs for the required works. However, he wished to defer making a final decision until the full extent of the required savings his section would need to make, was known.
.
REMEMBRANCE ORCHARD SCHEME
Councillors noted that the Parish Council’s interest in taking part in the Remembrance Orchards scheme, had been submitted. An application was due to be made to the Heritage Lottery Fund for grant funding. Information on the outcome was awaited.
.
STATE OF THE ROADS IN THE VILLAGE
The clerk explained that this item had been requested by Cllr Mew. However, in his absence the clerk advised that the problem stemmed from the number of large potholes along Oxford Street. The clerk had reported the matter to Island Roads and had suggested to Cllr Mew that he and the complainants should do the same. In discussion, Councillors highlighted the volume of surface water racing down Pallance Road, during the current period of excessive rain. The rain water was causing the top road surface to lift, displacing gravel, which subsequently blocked the drains thereby exacerbating the problem. The clerk was requested to report the matter to Southern Water.
