Quadring Parish Council minutes

A Meeting of Quadring Parish Council was held on Monday 2nd September 2019
nder the Chairmanship of Coun Mrs W Hawkes.

The question of data protection was bought up, as the Clerk had misunderstood the position of Mrs Stephanie Martin and Mrs Liz Scott, with regard to the Playing Field Committee.   He had thought that they were to be part of the committee when in fact they would only help out as necessary.  The Clerk was to write to apologise for this, but it was thought that it did not contravene any data protection.

The trees near the school had been trimmed and the road to the school had been done. The potholes in Towndrove had also been done and the problem on footpath no:7 were being dealt with. Someone had been doing work on the dyke alongside this footpath without permission and the matter was now in the hands of the Drainage Board. The rubbish at the house near Crane Bridge had been cleared up.

The AWA letter and map regarding the proposed new water pipe across the allotments was put before the Council and it was thought that it may entitle the Council to some compensation. The AWA had also been made aware regarding the tenant.

Cheques for Sneaths (Grass cutting),  SHDC (Election) and Glasdon (Dog bin) were signed.

The next year's grass cutting programme was discussed.  The Playing Field and the lay-by needed cutting 3 times per year. The School footpath, footpath No:7 and the footbridge footpath in Watergate wanted cutting as and when required. The piece at the Toll Bar did not need cutting. The SHDC were to be asked if they would cut the piece in Casswell Drive, as they already cut the Playgound.

There was a slight problem with moles on the Playing Field. The SHDC were to be asked for a price, as they did vermin control, and Coun Bingham was to ask Mr Verdegaal for a price.

PCSO Abbotts had reported that there had been speed checks in the village. There had been 6 traffic offences, 1 MOT offence and 15 words of advice on speeding. The police had given 8 warnings in one particular hour.

Any 106 money needed applying for before any building took place. It was also decided to see if any money was available for the Playing Field repairs. There could also be some money available from Diatrict and County Councillors.

A complaint was made regarding the internet speed in the village.  Quadring was supposed to be classed as superfast, but this did not appear to be so.

PCSO Abbotts was looking into the problem with the Pill Box in Sarahgate Lane.

The next meeting dates are:


October 7th
November 18
December 30th


February 3rd

All dates are provisional and could be subject to alteration by prior arrangement.
