News from the Council Chamber – June 2019

The new “Gateways” to the village have been installed. Councillors noted that they do seem to encourage drivers to slow down more than standard speed indicators alone. We all hope that these, together with the mobile speed indicators will reduce speeding in and through the village.

The Council has decided to use the Canadian Solar Grant to resurface the Springfield Road Car Park but is also examining the feasibility of including Village Defibrillators, churchyard enhancements, a drinking fountain and swift boxes within its existing works. In parallel, the Council is investigating whether the various sports/fitness initiatives proposed might qualify for alternative funding from SSDC. Whilst circumstances currently preclude taking forward the Revive and Heritage proposals, enhancement of the Weigh-bridge area remains a future aspiration. Other proposals will not be taken forward however the Council wishes to thank all those who submitted proposals.

South West in Bloom judging takes place in the village on Tuesday 9th July. There will be a final “spruce-up” litter-pick in the village on SATURDAY 6th JULY. Please come and help if you have some time free. Tools and rubbish bags will be supplied. Please check the MP PC website for location and time (milborneport.org.uk/parish-council)
