Points of Note:

Dog Fouling Campaign update. CPC had undertaken an extensive cam- paign to increase awareness of the problem of dog fouling with a competition and new signage. Unfortunately recently some of the new signs had been vandalised. It was decided not to replace the signs as present and to monitor the situation. A plea had gone into the December Village news edition for dog owners to take responsibility.

Bus shelters Options regarding the bus shelters were discuss:

1. To repair the cracks and to tie block work together to secure,
repair. Action: Cllr Bavister is acquiring quotes.
2. To apply for a grant for complete replacement of the 2 shelters. Full costs of replacement, removal of old shelters and installation could be approx. £35-40k. If the concrete bases need replacing this could extend to approx.. £50k to receive an update of grants available against costs of repair. Information has been provided by Cllr Robins on grant assistance that may be available
3. Apply for a long term loan to be paid back over 10-15 years. This would require a public consultation.

Targets for 2022/23 have been updated and are available on the website. Finance Matters:

The Draft Budget Proposal for 2023/24 precept request was received by CPC and would be considered at the January meeting.
