Public Open Forum

A member of the public noted that a felled tree had been left in the ditch near to the electricity substation. This followed arboreal work undertaken contractors working for the electricity board. It was agreed that the Clerk would contact the board and ask that the tree be removed.

 

Minutes of the Previous Meeting

The minutes of the meeting held on 29 January were approved. This was proposed by Councillor Armstrong and seconded by Councillor Riches.     

 

Matters Arising and Correspondence

The Clerk reported that his enquiries had revealed that milestones in the county were now the responsibility of the Milestones Society, a charitable trust. Their local representative had advised that the milestone located on the Haunton Road was an historic monument. This meant that it relocating it would be complicated and also meant that maintaining it required the use of specialist paint. It was agreed that the Clerk would contact the Milestones Society again to determine whether they had an ongoing maintenance programme and also clarify whether it being outside the village boundary was an issue.

Action: Clerk to contact Milestone Society
