Writtle Village Parish Meeting

The Writtle Village Annual Parish meeting was held on April 17th in the Village Hall. 

 Unfortunately this year business meant that I was not be able to attend and  volunteers did not queue up to the job, so I have lifted the notes from the parish website.

If  "one of the 24" would like to give their view on the meeting please contact me.

The following is from the parish website. I have  added paragraphs to help legibility

The Annual Parish Meeting was held in the Village Hall on 17 April 2002 under the Chairmanship of Mr Tony Sach with eight other Councillors being present together with two Police Officers and 24 members of the public.

The following is a brief resume of what took place.
Community Policing - concern was expressed that vandalism was still rife in the village and police response times seemed not to have improved. Youth nuisance continued to be a problem and the police were requested to look at improving their telephone answering system at New Street. The good news was that P C Adams ‘beat’ had been reduced to cover Writtle, Roxwell and Highwood losing the urban areas of Beechenlea, Westlands and Waterhouse Lane. The Traffic Police were also aware of motor cycle speeding and were targetting accordingly.

 Annual Reports All Committee Chairmen presented annual reports covering Executive & Finance, Allotments, Development, Greens, Highways and Playing Fields.
Concerns were expressed by parishioners regarding the litter clearance contract, Chelmsford Borough Council’s verge grass cutting, surface water in Mayfield Road, ford at Cow Watering Lane, new electricity sub station at Lordship Road and Writtle College expansion especially the application to create a new reservoir.
Accounts Draft figures were produced in line with the new accounting regime recently introduced by the District Audit Commission and it was agreed to provide a more detailed breakdown of these figures.
