NORTHWOOD PARISH COUNCIL NEWS

FROM THE APRIL 2015 MEETING

.

POLICE REPORT
In the absence of a representative from the Local Safety Neighbourhood Team councillors noted the email received from Sgt Mark Lyth. This set out a number of changes to the organisational structure of the Hampshire Constabulary on the Island.  The newly named Wight Rural West Neighbourhood Policing Team would now fall under the responsibility of Sgt Lyth and be based over two sites, one in Yarmouth and the other in Cowes. PCs Knight, Pringle and PCSOs Howard, Clarke, Paul and Anker would form the team based in Cowes.
Due to the teams’ workload individual crime statistics would not in future be provided. However, it was anticipated that a member of the Neighbourhood Policing Team would attend meetings of the Parish Council on a quarterly basis, with a monthly report being provided in the interim on their work undertaken.
Councillors considered this to be rather disappointing and suggested that invitations be sent to Sgt Lyth to attend the June meeting of the Parish Council, and also for a representative of Gurnard Parish Council and Cowes Town Council to be in attendance.
.
FUTURE OF THE POST OFFICE
Email correspondence had been circulated to councillors following the circulation of the agenda. This advised that successful negotiations had taken place between Ms Sue Calver, the postmistress of the Pallance Road post office and Mr Robert Worley, Field Change Advisor, of the Post Office Ltd. The Pallance Road branch is now open on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. A notification poster was being sent to the branch to inform customers of the change. The clerk had spoken to Ms Calver  and she was content to maintain the service on a part-time basis for the foreseeable future.
.
“MY LIFE – A FULL LIFE”
The Vice Chairman welcomed Mr Paul Savill, Voluntary Sector Locality Link Officer of the new project. The project had been formed following collaboration between the IW Clinical Commissioning Group, the IW NHS Trust, the IW Council and the wide range of voluntary and community organisations on the Island. The aim of the project was to fully integrate services and information sharing to improve the care of the elderly and the vulnerable. On the Isle of Wight 25% of the population was over 65 years of age compared with an average of 17% across the South East. The target was to make a real difference to people, their carers and families whilst making better use of resources within the care and support system, as well as the wider community. A copy of the Care passport required to be completed by each client was circulated.  This would provide very simplified but detailed information on the care and needs of each person, thus facilitating a seamless service from the multi-disciplinary teams involved.
.
PLANNING APPLICATION
Agricultural storage barn rear of 67 Oxford Street, Northwood – Demolition of agricultural building; proposed detached dwelling. After discussion, the Council confirms its concern with regard to the application, which could set an unwanted precedent for future backland development in this vicinity. The application site lay outside the development boundary. The concept to demolish an agricultural building to be replaced by a permanent residential dwelling was opposed. Councillors also maintained that the footpath alongside the proposed development was an important ancient footpath, and forming part of the Definitive map should be retained.
