Parish Council Meeting Notes – November 2016

The meeting began with the Chairman reporting that he had not received a police report for this meeting.
The speeding traffic is still a problem and the speed notices need renewal, they are faded and not very visible.
The pothole in Repton Drive that had been reported direct to Cheshire East Council had been mended the next day.
It was stressed that people should report any problems such as potholes, street lights etc. direct to Cheshire East Council and this will enable them to prioritise their workload, depending on the number of reports received.
The light post outside Brook Terrace did not have a light on it and there was no electricity supply to it, a problem to be resolved by Scottish Power.
There are 13 volunteers to distribute the Neighbourhood Plan leaflets but at least 7 more are needed to distribute these to all residents in the Parish. Anyone willing to distribute and collect the leaflets will be paid £50.00.
The Haslington Parish Council Facebook page is very popular and anyone wishing to access it should search “Haslington Parish Council” in Facebook or visit where there is a link to the Facebook page and where some notices can also be viewed.
The Hazel Bank development, which was agreed on appeal despite many objections during a very heated and long planning meeting, still cannot go ahead as the access restriction has not been resolved.
There was some confusion as to when the Poppy Flag should be erected. It used to be two days before Remembrance Sunday and two days after. However, it has now been decided that the Poppy Flag should be erected at the start of November until Remembrance Sunday.
The subcommittee of the Parish Council who will be evaluating the play equipment etc. will meet in January.
There has been fly tipping at the Skate Park in Maw Lane and the Environment Agency are to be asked to monitor this. There have been many notifications of this on the Haslington Community Page.
Pool Lane’s new development is well underway and the bus stop is to be moved into the lay by at Winterley Pool opposite the Sandbach bus stop for the convenience of residents.
Tony Peake is arranging for a defibrillator to be located on the wall of the Methodist Church. This news is very welcome.

Cllr. D Farrall
