March 2021.

East Winch Parish Council

Planning. All planning matters have been considerably delayed, as the Borough Council suffers staff shortages and struggles with Covid regulations.

The consultation period for the EcoWellness centre off the Ashwicken Road may not now take place until the summer.

Forestry work in Bilney woods. This was due to start in late February, but the foresters have been waiting until the soil dries up a bit before starting felling.

Extra dog poo bins. The Forestry Commission does not want to have a bin at the entrance to Bilney woods, having had bad experiences with bins in Shouldham Forest. As the woods are already spoilt by bags of poo which never rot away please bag up your dog’s poo and take it home and place in your black waste bin, or use the dog waste bins around the village.

Subject to the agreement of the Borough Council, it is hoped that a bin will be placed at the bottom of Church Lane. Bins cannot be emptied where the lane becomes a path, so please bear this in mind and take the poo to a bin. The nearest one is currently the one by the church gates.

Litter Picking

Hurrah for the wonderful team which collected litter in East Winch and along the common! They were so enthusiastic! Many, many thanks. Pity that just a day later someone had flung out more rubbish. Does anyone feel like continuing up Common Road beyond the chevrons? If so, pleas get in touch with Nell - telephone 840814
