Parish Council Notes – March 2012

These notes are highlights from the minutes of the Parish Council Meeting on 6th February together with information since the meeting and will be published in the Parish Magazine in March 2012.

Station Lane – Road Works
Highway road works will start through the village scheduled for Monday 27th February and when Yorkshire Water (Morrisons) have completed their works locally.  Highways will be working from the A61 at Wormald Green to Lime Kiln Lane; advance signs will be erected on site prior to the works and they will be allowing buses through the works, as well as residential access.  Traffic ambassadors will also be on site to assist motorists throughout the duration of the works.

Urgent request for new road markings & up-to-date signs
A warning sign for no road markings has been placed on the green.  The road will be re-lined once the above works are complete.  We have requested that the road signs that were highlighted in our meeting/sign survey with the highways inspector in November 2010 should now be replaced and improved to prevent any further accidents. 

Dog Waste Bin
A villager held a meeting to discuss dog waste in the village and unfortunately nobody attended.  We would like to thank them for their input and ideas.  The parish council would be happy to supply an additional dog waste bin at ‘Perkins Patch’ if the council will empty it; unfortunately they have stated that this would not be possible at this time.

Little Red Bus
Little Red Bus Travel Club are promoting their itinerary for forthcoming events which is available on the notice board and website. They are trying to encourage people to get out and about and visit local attractions.  They are also still operating the Demand responsive services to shops, doctors and hospital appointments.
Information Hotline 01423 526655.

The parish council have received notification of a planning application to erect a replacement single storey extension, alterations to windows and removal of chimney stack at The Cobblers, Station Lane, Burton Leonard.  This application will be discussed at the next parish council meeting and the plans will be available to view. 

Spring Litter Pick
We will be holding our annual litter pick on Saturday 31st March, meeting on the low green at 10 am.  Please let us know if you are able to help – many hands make light work, we appreciate all the help we can get from the community!
