NORTHWOOD PARISH COUNCIL NEWS

FROM THE MAY 2015 MEETING

.
At the Annual meeting, Chris Riddet was elected Chairman and David Jaggar, Vice-Chairman and Chairman of the Planning committee.
.
POLICE REPORT
Derek Howard, of the Cowes NPT was present and referred to his report, which had been circulated prior to the meeting.  Particular mention was made of the following:
An update of the team.  Unfortunately PCSO Dawn Clarke would shortly be leaving.
Annual crime statistics.  Crimes over the past year had increased by 31% on the previous year.  Although in reality this was an increase of only 18 crimes, indicating that Northwood continued to be a very safe place to live.
Community priorities continued to be cyclists and cars using the High Street in Cowes, during times of prohibition. Two further priorities had been created, these being to target the rising reports of shoplifting in the Terminus Road area and criminal damage to motor vehicles along Arctic Road.
Establishing an effective method to determine community priorities, by way of an online survey. Starting up Police and Community Together (PACT) meetings.
Mention was made of motor cyclists careering around the bluebell woods, near to Medham cycle track.  PCSO Howard advised to report any incidents on 101, immediately so that the police stood a chance of catching the culprits.
The complaint made by a resident of Nodes Road with regard to perceived speeding in the area would be passed on to the road and traffic team.
.
COMMUNITY WELLBEING
The Chairman welcomed Anita Cameron-Smith, Director of Public Health and Community Well-Being, along with Jacqui Spalding and Brian Hurley to the meeting.  Discussion ensued on the outcomes of the recent ABCD (Asset Based Community Development) seminars and councillors confirmed their interest in being involved in the scheme.  Training and support would be provided by Nurture Development.
Councillors proposed for Cllr J Nicholson to take the lead, along with Cllr Pullen suggesting that they meet to discuss the way forward and then prepare a report, in time for the June meeting.
.
TO APPROVE THE PURCHASE OF SUMMER BEDDING
The clerk advised that confirmation had still not been received on the issue of a grant towards the cost of summer bedding plants.  Last year the grant had been for £200, with a further £61 required as a top-up.  One quotation of approximately £250 had been obtained to cover the cost of the planting required.  If a credit was not forthcoming then two further quotations would be obtained in line with Financial Regulations.
It was decided that a maximum of £260 should be spent on the purchase of summer bedding plants.
.
PLANNING
Land off Westway, Northwood – Outline for 3 detached dwellings with vehicular access and parking. The  Council, having due regard to the Island Plan Core Strategy, does not consider there to be any valid planning reasons for objection to the application.  However, the IW Council’s Tree Officer is requested to examine carefully the implications set out in the Tree Survey and Arboricultural Implications assessment attached to the application to determine if correct and to suggest that a replacement tree be planted to replace any suggested trees for removal.
