NEWSLETTER ISSUE 2: 6TH SEPTEMBER 2023

  • The recreation ground now has four new park benches and a new picnic table. Existing round picnic tables are still in the process of being refurbished and are gradually being returned to the ground.
  • We had hoped the new football goal would be in place by mid-August but supplier difficulties and an installation problem forestalled us. Nonetheless, it is now erected and available for use. The basketball hoop also has a new net and the backboard will be cleaned soon.
  • The War Memorial refurbishment commences on 25th September. If all goes well the work should be complete in time for Remembrance Sunday.
  • Some residents have queried the sign erected by Denbury Homes on land east of Duck Street. Despite strong objections by parish/district councillors and many local residents, planning permission was granted for 47 houses and six commercial units in January 2022. New objections are now too late.
  • The result of the appeal for 1,200 houses to be built on the land east of Highwood Quarry is due to be published by 11th September. If the appeal is allowed then 10,000 houses on Easton Park may well occur. SEP and your council will then need your support. We’ll let you know as soon as we know.
  • As we start thinking about the 2024 budget we need your thoughts on how you would like your money spent in the parish next year. What does the parish need? Come along to the next LEPC meeting on 27th September and tell us.
  • Highways have agreed to install wires at Mill End to monitor traffic flow and speed for a temporary period but despite repeated chasing we are still awaiting installation. [Newsflash – the wires are now installed!]

FLOODING

Sunday 7th January 2024

The flooding at Bowyers Bridge (Mill End) has subsided and the road is passable by vehicles. The emergency access route through the quarry is now closed.

Be aware that there still remains serious flooding throughput the area and care should be taken, particularly on the more rural routes.

Thank you to everyone for your understanding and patience over the past three days. 

Be kept informed
