Items of importance dealt with week commencing 9th July 2018

Hedges Around Town

An update on the tender process in anticipation of the Extraordinary Town Council meeting next Wednesday. The Tenders were opened on Friday 22nd June in the presence of the solicitor, land agent and the Town Clerk. There were 9 plots available for tender and the council had 8 tenders offered. There were two tenders which were not accepted and therefore there are three plots still not allocated. The previous businesses that expressed an interest in the original tender process have been contacted and have asked if they wish to make a fresh offer. The decision by the Council will therefore be whether to accept the new offers on the table.

Enhancement Advertising

The adverts for the Enhancements Sign are ready to go to print so these should be up and finished in the next few weeks.

Kingdon Avenue

We have reported again to DCC the bushes at the entrance to Kingdon Avenue which are at the moment a visibility hazard. Also it has been reported that the sign for the road has been taken down and just the stumps are left. I will also be mentioning this to Cllr Yabsley.

Re-Surfacing of Southley Road

It has been confirmed that NDC will be re surfacing Southley Road and also the road coming down from Mill Street past Spirebourne premises. This will be completed before the Tour of Britain in September according to the Leader of NDC.

Re-Cycle Bins at rear of Amory Centre

We have been having problems with the recycle bins at the rear of the Amory Centre and the majority of the recycling is from businesses in town and also from other parishes. There is a sign up saying there is to be no commercial waste. Some photographs were taken of the boxes that have been put there and I have already been to one business to explain they should not be using that site. The answer I had back was that it is so easy to use. Personally I think we should reconsider this amenity after all it does cost over £2000 per annum . Any thoughts on this.
