The comments made in the following articles represent the views of the individual contributors, rather than Northwood parish council

|

Annual General Meeting

At the AGM of Northwood Parish Council, Cllr John Pullen was re-elected Chairman and Cllr Pat Bentley, Vice – Chairman and Chairman of the Planning Committee.

|
Housing Needs Survey

As requested at the last meeting of the Parish Council, the clerk had made enquiries with Wootton Parish Council to ascertain as to how much they had set aside to undertake a Housing Needs Survey. Although they had not any absolute figures for carrying out the survey, as the tender documents had not yet been sent out, they had planned to work within a budget of about £5,000.

|

Planning

The main planning application was for the former landfill site, adjacent Coal Yard, Medina Wharf, Arctic Road, Cowes – Proposed asphalt plant together with associated ancillary facilities including a mobile cold asphalt recycling plant, mobile crusher, weighbridge, offices, lorry park, storage bays, workshop and access.
Copies of two emails received from residents in East Cowes were tabled for information. A member of the public, who lived in East Cowes addressed the Parish Council with his concerns. A local resident from Medham Farm Estate also addressed the Parish Council endorsing the previous comments and highlighting his own particular concerns.
It was decided that this matter be deferred until the meeting of the Planning Committee took place on Tuesday, May 15th . At that meeting, the Council rejected the scheme on a number of points.

|

Roadworks

As requested at the previous meeting, Mr Peter Hayward, the IW Council’s Strategic Manager of Highways and Transport had been invited to attend the June meeting to discuss councillors’ concerns over road closures and the numerous roadworks taking place in the Cowes wider area. Mr Hayward had replied that unfortunately he could not practically resource attending all Council meetings, as a matter of routine, suggesting that he be provided with a list of specific questions which members would like to raise. He would then ensure a written briefing on those issues, in advance of the June meeting.

|

New Waste Collection Arrangement

Also requested at the previous meeting, Cllr Edward Giles had been invited to attend the July meeting to discuss the new waste collection arrangements, as detailed in the edition of the County Press dated 30 March. Councillors had expressed a number of concerns in this regard. Cllr Giles had responded that if there were issues councillors wished to raise it could be more helpful if they be sent to him now to address, rather than for councillors to wait for nearly 3 months for a response.

|

Community Bus

It was reported that the new timetable for service 32 community bus appeared to be working well. The extra funding from the IW Council had been most welcome. The bus coordinator had expressed his concerns over the number of available volunteer bus drivers. Since the scheme began a number of drivers had now left, leaving a possible shortfall as the new volunteers had still not completed their training. It was suggested that a further recruitment campaign be instigated.
Councillors also agreed that Cllr Riddet, as the lead councillor for the Working Party, should replace Cllr Pullen on the Management Committee.

|

Northwood Planters

A call was awaited from Ryde House Nurseries as to when the summer planting would be available for collection. The tubs/planters were to be cleared shortly in readiness. Two bags of compost remained from the previous year. It was agreed that further supplies should be bought, if necessary. Cllr Mazillius volunteered to clear the three planters adjacent to the Gateway sign along the Newport Road.
