Newsletter Article for March

 

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.  Solicitors are now dealing with the matter.

 

Pocket Park

The Council’s solicitors are edging towards a transfer but it is a slow process.

 

Youth Club

WBC are unsure if they own the property on Orchard Road, until they are sure, they cannot transfer it to Finedon Town Council – I’ll keep you posted.

 

Highways

As you know, it has been noted that there are more and more pot holes appearing in Finedon and the roads are crumbling away due to the high volume of traffic being sent through Finedon on diversions.  A meeting with Highways took place and the Council have been assured that some roads in Finedon are scheduled for resurfacing, Orchard Road being one of them and the pot holes, over a certain depth, are being filled in.  The works at Chowns Mill have started and I shall try to keep you up-to-date with closures via twitter and the website each time the Council is advised by Highways England.

An application has been made to WBC for the funding of a new vehicle activated sign to be used in conjunction with the old one at the agreed locations. We are waiting to hear the outcome.

 

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

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.
