THERFIELD PARISH COUNCIL
Main Points of Discussion at Meeting Held on Tuesday, 10th November 2020
4 members of the public present.
1. Matters Arising from September Meeting: Community Phone – this was still live and it was agreed to leaflet the village to raise awareness during the current lockdown. Replacement Bench for Mill Lane – there had been no response to item in Newsletter and it was agreed to revisit in the New Year.
2. Heaths & Greens: The Chairman reported that he had been advised that a final cut of the Greens was due to take place this month; the delay due to weather conditions. Again, the Council expressed concerns about parking on New Road at the access point to Jubilee Wood. This has become a safety issue. Parking was restricting the road to a single carriageway and visibility is not good. It was reported that Landowners and the Conservators shared the Council’s concerns and were considering options. Cllr Jarvis to follow up.
3. Planning: 2 applications had been received:
The Homestead – No objection
Red Lion Stud: – No objection. The Council would, however, request due regard be given to the access to and from the development from the busy A10.
Tuthill Yard: The Council had been informed by the Environment Agency that Luton Skips had ceased trading from the site and their waste had been cleared.
4. DriveSafe: Eleven volunteers had stepped forward. Unfortunately, everything now on hold due to the current lockdown.
20 is plenty campaign – the Council agreed to support this campaign to change the criteria in order that the 20mph restriction can be applied within a broader set of circumstances.
Date of the Next Meeting: Tuesday, 12th January 2021
