In 2020/21 budget, £6000 was set aside to achieve this.

The site is overgrown and in need of lighting.
It was discussed that CPC need to canvass nearby residents to see if the feeling of 2017 has changed. Need to look at the view of the residents before deciding a course of action.
Can create a survey using neutral questions and non-leading questions to gather current views.
Will send to Canney Close, and New Road between The Canney and Station Road.
Clerk and Cllr Kearsey to work on this.
To be discussed at next meeting and expenditure for this approved – paper and on-line survey costs.
20/77. HIGHWAYS. Discuss and vote on overgrown hedges along New Road as well as road conditions.
SBC have previously noted that they will instruct the landowners to cut back any overgrown hedges.
The road surface is deteriorating and has potholes – can be a hazard for cyclists.
The Clerk is to send out the letter that previously went to SBC noting that the road needed closing to be re-surfaced and that this had resident’s support. Nothing was heard back when the letter was originally sent.
SBC are the authority who have power over hedge cutting enforcement. CPC cannot enforce hedge cutting.
The Clerk is to chase Ward Cllrs about this matter and contact SBC direct with regards to ensuring the landowners take the appropriate action.
The above course of action was proposed by Cllr Rawlings. Cllr Bates seconded and all Cllrs were in favour.
