NORTHWOOD PARISH COUNCIL NEWS

FROM THE MARCH 2014 MEETING

with Cllr Chris Riddet in the Chair.

.

POLICE REPORT
PCSO Steve Anker presented the report of the Local Safety Neighbourhood (LSN) team on matters arising since the last meeting. Particular mention was made of the following: The very low levels of crime in Northwood. Only five crimes had been reported this year, to date, which matched the same level as last year.
Speed Watch events had again taken place within the Northwood and Gurnard areas. The need for further volunteers to undertake the use of the hand held speed gun was highlighted. It was agreed that the perception of speeding was far greater than that actually recorded. Although any recorded speeding was unenforceable, the driver would be sent an educational letter.
.
PLANNING
Among the planning applications discussed were:
Camp Hill Wind Farm – Proposals to transport the wind turbines to the application site from the Medina Dock, at its junction with Arctic Road. It was explained that although the Parish Council had submitted representations to the application previously, these had centred on the actual site itself.
Following discussion on the matter, members of the public then spoke highlighting their highway related concerns should the application receive planning permission.
Councillors, as their attention had recently been drawn in more detail to the proposals to facilitate the conveyance of the blades up Arctic Road into Newport Road.
The Council decided to make further objections on the loss of vegetation, including trees to allow for navigation. The visual appearance and the consequences on those properties at the junction of Arctic Road and Newport Road, which would result should the suggested levelling of the ground and permanent installation of lockable bollards be implemented, was considered to be untenable.
.
DRAINAGE PALLANCE ROAD
The Clerk read from an email that she had received from Southern Water in respect of the concerns raised with regard to the surface water drainage along Pallance Road. It confirmed that their service partners, Clancy Docwra, will be investigating the sewer system in the road. They had been requested to check if the size of the sewer changed throughout the length of Pallance Road, to see if that was the cause of the surface water drainage issues. Cllr Nicholson reported that Richard Baker, of Island Roads, was to review the sewer system in May.
.
BYE BYE ASPHALT PLANT APPLICATION
It was noted by the Parish Council, with much pleasure, that application for a proposed asphalt plant, together with associated ancillary facilities including a mobile cold recycling plant, mobile crusher, weighbridge, offices, lorry park, storage bays, workshop and access at Medina Wharf was withdrawn.
.
