Library Lease

The Town Council have agreed to enter into a lease for the library space in the Town Hall as from 1st April 2020 in line with the Friends of Finedon Library’s agreement with NCC.  It was further agreed that the Town Council would pay the property costs of the library for its first year.

 

Banks Park

The replacement trees have now been planted and the Council thanks those who donated for their support in this project.

 

Youth Club

A requirement has been identified by the Council for a youth club building which would enable local youth clubs to have a permanent base in Finedon.

The Council has written to Wellingborough Borough Council asking about the possibility of the old youth club being transferred to them.  This project would ensure the building is kept in use as originally intended when gifted to the community.  The Council awaits a response.

 

Highways

It has been noted that there are more and more pot holes  appearing in Finedon and the roads are crumbling away.  The matter was discussed at the meeting and the Council is writing to Highways with its concerns.  Please report any issues to Highways via their Fix My Street portal, just ctrl+click on the link below.  It is a numbers game so the more an issue gets reported the higher it moves up the list of jobs to do!

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.
