Meldreth Parish Council


Extracts from the unapproved minutes of the Parish Council Meeting held on Thursday 10th January in Meldreth Village Hall.


Apologies were received from Mr N Pellatt, Councillor van de Ven and Councillor S Soond.


Public Participation


There was one member of the public present who expressed concern about the overgrown hedge on Kneesworth Road opposite the Showmen’s sites. Children are being stopped by the police for not walking against the traffic flow. This is because the hedge is overgrown and therefore it is not safe for them to walk on the grass verge. The landowners will be advised that they are responsible for their hedge maintenance.


Matters arising


A Highways Minor Improvement Scheme application has been submitted for lower speed limits on Whitecroft Road and around the Fenny Lane crossroads.


Speed checks on North End were requested by the public last month. Police have been consulted and will be carrying out checks.


Mettle Hill Update


Mr Searles reported that the Parish Council’s solicitor has received a draft contract for the purchase of the land from CCC. The solicitor has agreed to ask CCC to take responsibility for the remedial costs of any contamination which may be found on the land.


Mr Hawkins reported that the Public Works Loan Board now has all the relevant documentation and expect to able to confirm the award of the loan very soon.


Possible uses for the land are to be included in the updated Parish Plan and there will be a public consultation with the village. All suggestions for the future use the land should be forwarded to the Clerk for consideration in due course.
