Councillor updates

Dr. Steven Winfield has recently been added to our team of councillors.  Steven has recently become involved in council activities and engaged in issues such as gathering support for better broadband in the community.  He was co-opted at the most recent parish council meeting and the team are very happy to have him on board.

We would also like to announce the stepping down of Councillor Vernon Ingham who has been a valuable member of the council team.  He will be missed, not just because of his good humour and positivity but wealth of knowledge and his can do attitude.  Thank you Vernon for your 25+yrs on the council and all the best in your future endeavours.

Local Highways Initiative

Wardy Hill - Witcham

We are proud to announce that Coveney Parish Council were able to obtain funding and implementation of a traffic calming project at the entrance to Wardy Hill on Jerusalem Drove.  The project aims to slow the traffic coming into Wardy Hill.   The scheme will add a gate styled design to the entrance with the relevant signage painted on the road surface.  These kinds of projects have shown to slow vehicles as they realise they are entering a village area.  In addition to this the parish council has agreed to maintain the entrance with regular grass cutting and our new Groundsman will be starting those cuts in April.   We have also made a financial contribution to the project of approx. £500.00

We started this project and made the application due to residents feedback on the speed of vehicles even though the speed sign had helped the recent covid restrictions and highways works identified other issues.  A near miss to a resident getting seriously hurt and the increase in walkers has raised serious concerns for those in the area.

The project will now move to a more advance design taking into consideration the concern of sight lines and pedestrians.

Storage space required

The parish council is searching for a storage location for its grounds maintenance equipment. We require a space approximately the size of a garage and accessible all year round. Anyone that may have a suitable location or would like to discuss the options can contact barry.matthews@coveneyparishcouncil.co.uk , the closer to the parish the better but it does not necessarily need to be in the parish.

Notice of vacancy in office of parish councillor

We have a vacancy within the parish council as Caroline Badcock is leaving the team. We would like to thank Caroline for her hard work and commitment to the parish council.

If you have any questions about the position, then please feel free in speaking to any councillor for more information about the role or speak directly to our clerk Sandra.

Formal notice is here.
