11/181 REPORTS FROM COUNTY AND DISTRICT COUNCILLORS
(VERBAL REPORT AT MEETING; COPY OF REPORT TO CLERK)
D/Cllr Brooks gave a verbal report to the meeting. Copies of report to be put in notice boards and on the village website.
Both Councillors, John Peck and Celia Brooks, continue to work on individual cases raised by residents of Edwinstowe.
A meeting was held in Edwinstowe with the Chief Planning Officer from Newark and Sherwood District Council to discuss the proposed development on East Lane behind the Jug and Glass. The Jug and Glass building itself was discussed but as yet there are no plans in place for its future use. Both Councillors are keen to see its facade protected and the building put to good use and an asset to the Village and the High Street.
Other areas discussed were the empty building on Mansfield Road (formally a newsagent/shop) and the children's play area on Friars Park. We hope to find a way forward on both these areas of concern in the near future.
We are also working with Newark and Sherwood Officers on a tree planting scheme for the wider grass verges on the roads leading into the Village. This will need support from the County Council as some of these are there responsibility.
Both Councillors are keen to work with the local anti-social behaviour teams and the police to try to address issues of anti-social behaviour raised by several residents throughout the Village. We know that the vast majority of young people in the Village act perfectly responsibly but unfortunately a small group do cause nuisance problems in a few 'hot spots'.
C/Cllr Ward was not in attendance however; it has come to the attention of the Parish Council that Cllr Ward has submitted two funding requests to NCC Local Improvement Scheme. One for parking bays on Fourth Avenue and one for seating on Sixth Avenue.
These requests have been approved, without notification or consultation with the Parish Council. It was agreed for the Chair to write to NCC expressing concern. Clerk to liaise with the Chair.
It was also agreed to write to C/Cllr Cutts requesting firm dates for the works on the junction of Rose Cottage/A614 and when the future improvements to Ollerton Roundabout will take place. Clerk to liaise with the Chair
