Next Parish Council Meeting - 10/12/14


SNOW PREPARATIONS: Following last winter's heavy snow, which saw many parts of the village become a hazard for pedestrians and cars alike, the Parish Council has taken delivery of a tonne of salt, 2 salt spreaders and 6 snow shovels. This equipment is being stored at a central location and is available for all residents to use, although it should be noted that use is restricted to the public highway only.

Please contact either Julie Redfern (530308) or Howard Rolfe (530742) for further information.

Ideally we will have a team of volunteers ready to help keep Chesterford moving should heavy snow arrive.

Pot Holes and other Highway Defects 
Residents should be aware that there are a number of ways in which these can be reported directly to Essex County Council:

With a large number of potholes in the district, it is important to continue reporting their location, to help ensure that they are repaired.

Sewage Leak at Recreation Ground
Untreated sewage has again leaked onto the centre of the Delles field and onto the surface of the Recreation Ground, close to the Community Centre. The cause of the leak was obstruction of the sewers at the pumping station and a large amount of waste material had to be removed.
Advice was sought from Anglia Water and the Customer Response Manager for Cambridgeshire and Essex visited the village. We have been asked to draw attention to the steps which we can all take to prevent these incidents by restricting the items that are flushed down our toilets
. These blockages have been recurrent.
