Local Council Elections 7th May 2020

Postponed until next year.

 

Highways

You will be pleased to note that the Council has managed to get Highways to see the sense in delaying the resurfacing of Orchard Road so that it can dovetail with the gas works scheduled there too.  However, the salting of the closed health centre will continue until the end of the winter season as it is too late to stop it now.  The works and week-end and evening closures at Chowns Mill and I shall try to keep you up to-date with closures via twitter and on the website.

WBC very kindly awarded the Council £2,000 towards the funding of a new vehicle activated sign which is under half of the cost.  An application has been made to the Road Safety Community Fund for the balance, supported by our local PCSO.  We shall know by the end of June if the Council has been successful in its bid and will be able to purchase the VAS.

Please keep reporting any issues to Highways via their Fix My Street portal, just ctrl+click on the link

GP Provision in Finedon

Rest assured that the Council is continuing to press for better GP provision in Finedon and Peter Bone MP is using his influence too.  I will keep you up to date as developments happen.

 

Library

The new signage for the library has been agreed and will give a smart new look to the community library.

 

Pocket Park

The Council’s solicitors are close to a transfer, please keep an eye out for anything untoward in the meantime.

 

As usual, please feel free to contact the Council should you have anything you wish to bring to their attention.  Providing it is within the Council’s remit, we will try our best to make Finedon a better place to live.
