Minute Number 3/19

Minutes of the Parish Council Meeting held on Wednesday 10 April 2019

Attendance - Parish Councillors :- Mrs N Steele, Mr K Harrod, Mr M Place, Mr A Yarham and Mrs L Papworth

Apologies :-  Mr N Velzeboer, Mr D Wright and Mrs S Davison,

In attendance -  Mr R Pannell (Clerk) and 1 parishioner

 

01 The Chair opened the meeting at 7.30 pm and welcomed all those in attendance.(closed 8.50pm)

02 Declarations of Interests

The Chair reminded Councillors to advise the Clerk if they should need to declare an interest.

03 Bench for Play Area

Council had a wide ranging discussion on this subject. Mrs Papworth provided information on a range of benches which had met with the approval of the Borough Officer. However, concern was expressed by a number of Councillors, who felt that a picnic table and seats was a more appropriate way to proceed. This was against the general view taken by the Borough Council Officer who was concerned that it would become a meeting area for the local youths and cause a nuisance factor to the residents.

Council rejected this assumption and felt that it was for the Village Parishioners and Council to decide on what was suitable for their needs. Council deputed the Clerk to follow this up with the Officer.

After discussing various options, Council unanimously approved an item from the Earth Anchor range, (EA 234 a round table and 8 seats made from reclaimed materials) at a cost of £465 plus VAT.

Once agreement reached with the Borough Officer the clerk to proceed with the order.

04 Local Development Plan

The Chair outlined to Council the basic details of the LDP which she had established while compiling background information for the compilation of a letter to the Borough Council. The impact on the village of East Winch and West Bilney was predominately the lack of a planned infrastructure for roads and services within the Plan. This would have a serious impact on congestion with the A47 leading into the King’s Lynn area. There was also the reliance on things happening, to assist the Plan, which were outside of any control by the Borough Council and could therefore effect the overall housing situation. Having a bypass to West Winch and bringing the joining point to the A47 near to Constitutional Hill would also bring about a congestion point. Council were unable to agree on asking for the “at least” phrase to be removed from the Plan and should therefore not be quoted in the letter.

The Clerk to respond positively to the request from CPRE to support their Pledge that “no new sites are allocated for building until existing allocations in current core strategies have been developed”.

05 Speed Monitoring

There have been several parishioners showing an interest in becoming part of a team to monitor speed within the village. It was agreed that the Chair would make enquiries into what was entailed in formalizing an arrangement.

Obtain three quotes for equipment. Survey the local community for comments and assess needs.(subsequently a survey showed some 30 children were likely regular users). A bench type seat positioned away from the sides of the area (more centrally placed) would be sensible.
