Main Notes from the parish council meeting of the 16th January 2017
The parish council would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy New Year albeit a little belated.
The parish precept has not been increased for a number of years now, but to cover our costs the Parish council voted to increase it this year. The precept is the amount of money levied on each household in the village, it is collected by HBBC through your normal council Tax and passed onto to us, it allows us to run the various services such as ground maintenance, dog waste bin collection, play equipment inspection and repairs etc. The increase amounts to £1.73 per year per household per year. If anyone requires more details, please write or contact the parish clerk, who will be happy to supply you with the appropriate documents.
Residents with small children who use the toddlers play area will notice that the surface in that area is in a poor condition, the parish council are aware of this and are at present obtaining various quotations to get the replacement work carried out however, the type of surface we already have is very expensive therefore we are looking at alternatives that would be safe and acceptable. You may notice that one of the swings has been removed as a new seat is needed. We would appreciate if you notice any problems in the recreation ground, please notify the parish clerk or any parish councillor.
All car drivers will have noticed the potholes that have appeared at roundabout where the A5 meets Nuneaton Lane, they have been reported and we are at present awaiting a response.
We have been notified that the work on providing a hard standing surface by the bus stop at bottom of Nuneaton Lane has been approved we can only hope this work is carried in the very near future.
The Parish council would like to thank all the conscientious dog owners who pick up any mess made by their pets whether in the recreation ground, or in street the problem seems to have improved in recent months.
Our new parish web site is now up and running and we have had over 2000 visits to it since it began in July. We would ask you all to give it a try you may find it useful.
The next parish council meeting is Tuesday 7th March 2017 at the Methodist Chapel 7.30pm More »
