Police report

PC R Gosling submitted a police report for July and August. In July there were two crimes reported in Wymeswold: between 4th and 17th July there was a burglary to outbuildings near London Lane, and on 18th July there was an incident of theft on Wysall Lane. Three crimes occurred in the village in August: on 17th August there was a theft of a motor vehicle on Rempstone Road, between 24th and 25th August heating oil was stolen on Wysall Lane, and on 28th August there was an assault on Hoton Road.

The police also reported that in the last thirty days in there have been four thefts of heating oil crimes in the area: two in Barrow-on-Soar, one in Hoton, and one in Wymeswold. The police are urging people to be extra vigilant and be aware if you have oil storage tanks that could be accessible to thieves.

Community Speedwatch Campaign

The Community Speedwatch campaign started on 3rd September and will be running for four weeks. Cllr Ling has been co-ordinating the rotas of the many volunteers who came forward to help tackle speeding vehicles through the village. There are four shifts at various times every day at different locations around the village. On the first day alone 28 vehicles were registering over the speed limit. There will be a full report next month once the campaign has been completed.

Boyer Planning

Mr Krzys Lipinski, a representative from Boyer Planning, attended the Parish Council meeting in September. He outlined plans for the development on the land north of Rempstone Road. The plans are to develop the land either side of Storkit Lane and to build around 33 new houses.

He emphasised that the development is still at the planning stage and an official planning application has yet to be submitted to Charnwood Borough Council.

At this stage Boyer Planning is seeking information from parishioners which will be considered when the full plan is submitted to CBC. The Parish Council will be keeping a careful eye on developments and will await the official plans to be submitted to Charnwood Borough Council before making any comments.

To report on the Wymeswold Airfield Liaison meeting

A meeting of the Wymeswold Airfield Liaison Committee was held on 2nd August. Lark Energy also attended the meeting to present their proposals for a Solar Farm on the airfield. The Caravan Club has had their planning application approved, and there are plans to renew the application for ‘non-motorised’ events on the airfield.

It was reported that there have been no complaints of noise breaches and Everyman Racing reported that all the exhausts bar one have been replaced on the Lamborghinis.

The next meeting of Wymeswold Parish Council will be held on Monday 1st of October 2012 in the Jubilee Room, Wymeswold Memorial Hall, Clay Street, Wymeswold, starting at 7:15pm.
