To report on LCC Highways’ proposals for the new footway/kerb scheme on Hoton Road

LCC Highways department has sent plans to the Parish Council regarding works that are scheduled for the footpaths and kerbs on the grassed area at the bottom of London Lane, and for the footpaths along Hoton Road. The plans are to widen the footpath that runs through the grassed area, to reconstruct the kerb to the side of the green and to reconstruct the footways that run along Hoton Road as far as the pharmacy. The Parish Council has also put in a request to put in a double edge kerb opposite the pharmacy in an attempt to stop vehicles from mounting the kerb. It was agreed that all of the plans would be an improvement to the area.

New Mowing Team

We are pleased to report that from March 2014 Brian Mee Associates will be taking over the village mowing programme. Over the next few weeks they will be tidying up areas such as the cemetery and The Washdyke in order to prepare the grass for the new mowing season. The Parish Council have met with Martin Suffolk from Brian Mee Associates to go over the finer details which proved to be very positive  and the PC look forward to working with Brian Mee.

Site Allocations & Development Management Policies DPD

The Site Allocations & Development Management Policies DPD is a document that is produced by the planning at Charnwood Borough Council and is produced alongside the Core Strategy. The planning department has to consider any sites in the Borough that are worthy of development and why. The document has been sent to all Parish and Town Councils for consultation and has been discussed by Wymeswold PC. We are pleased to report that there are not any sites listed for Wymeswold, the Cllrs feel that there is no need to object to the document
