NORTHWOOD PARISH COUNCIL NEWS

FROM THE MAY 2014 MEETING

.

Cllr John Pullen was re-elected as Chairman, and Cllr Chris Riddet as Vice-Chairman, at the Annual meeting of the Council. Malcolm Nicholson of Nodes Road, was co-opted onto the Council.
.
POLICE REPORT
In the absence of a representative from the Local Safety Neighbourhood (LSN) team, the Clerk circulated a copy of the police report she had received.
Particular mention had been provided with the following, reduction of total crimes by 7% on the previous year, covering the Northwood and Gurnard area combined.
Beat surgeries are to be reduced to one per month, on the 2nd Thursday of the month commencing from June 12th, between 6pm – 8pm, at Cowes Police Station. School presentations, ongoing aimed at year groups 5&6.
Speedwatch scheme, ten volunteers from the local community have come forward, it is hoped to expand the scheme to the wider Cowes area in due course.
.
ISLAND ROADS
The Clerk advised that she had not received a response from Paul Herbert, Managing Director of Island Roads to her letter or to her reminder email. Rebecca Tuck had telephoned apologising for Malcolm Smith’s non-attendance at the last meeting. Island Roads now considered that the best option was for councillors to attend an Asset Management workshop, when several of the heads of service would be available to take any questions and could provide detailed answers. A further workshop was to be organised, but no details could be currently provided. However, it was noted that an Island Roads representative was due to attend meetings of other local councils. Councillors considered it to be very discourteous of Mr Herbert to not respond. The Clerk was instructed to be rather firm in her approach to request a representative to attend a future meeting and to make contact with Mr Tony Toynton, the IW Council’s Contract Manager to seek his assistance.
.
PLANNING
Among the planning applications was: Land fronting Place Road, including land to the side and rear of 47 – 11A Place Road and to the rear of The Heritage to Shephards Hay, Tuttons Hill and access off Place Road, Cowes – Outline for 90 dwellings, formation of vehicular access and associated works off Place Road (Revised Plan showing reduction from 99 dwellings) (Re-advertised application). This in fact just in Gurnard, but on Northwood’s boundary. After discussion it was decided that the Parish Council reaffirms its original representations against the application.
.

The following appointments to Committees/Working Parties were made:

Planning Committee – All councillors of the Parish Council, with the exception of Cllr Fuller, due to his appointment as the Chairman of the IW Council’s Planning Committee. Cllr Jaggar to be appointed as Chairman for the ensuing year;
