21/35 Declaration of interest
Members received a presentation from SPTS regarding a new development proposed on Celtic Lakes, plot 1 and plot 5, this will be a high tech building with a highly skilled workforce, it will consist of a 3 storey building and associated car parking, if planning is successful building will start next year with completion in 2024, SPTS already employ around 420 staff at their building at the Coldra, this new development would see another 250 jobs. Members asked a number of questions and were generally looking forward to seeing the plans submitted.
21/37 Matters arising from the minutes
21/38 Police matters
Members and resident are still experiencing huge problems without cars and motorbikes using the access road to Church Lane, with residents contacting the police without success, members felt we should write to the PCC to see if more resources could put in to combating this anti social behaviour.
Members received a report from the internal auditor and a copy of the completed accounts, clerk reported an overpayment of £200 on clerk’s salary, £200 was repaid back into bank when error was found, members agreed that the accounts can be sent to Audit Wales.
None this month.
21/42 Any Other Business
Chairman had been in touch with the chair of Marshfield Community Council, there was to be a meeting of chairs of the 4 community councils in the near future.
A member had sent an email giving details of recent action, since the installation of two 360′ cameras within the area fly tipping has reduced dramatically. These cameras are on a 12 month contract lease and all information recorded and collected by the cameras are available to all agencies such as Police who request information and not just NCC.
I’ve also been informed by Chris Thomas of the NCC Enforcement team that plans are in the pipeline for an all agency funded scheme to clear the area of debris and to install prevention measures such as new barriers, signs and planned maintenance of the area.
Here are some positive results since the cameras have been installed.
4 x fixed penalty notices.
2 x vehicles seized.
2 x court appearances.
2 x pending court.
With thanks to Tom Suller who provided me with large NO FLY TIPPING signs I have installed these in areas where tipping takes place.
On a positive the last two weekends have been quieter this I believe has been to a number of reasons, Police traffic car presence. The collection of number plates collected from vehicles and emailed to the Police for a possible issues of NIP (notice of intended prosecution). Also I have seen what I believe are ANPR cameras now fitted alongside the 360′ cameras for fly tipping.
Date of next meeting 3 August 2021
