The Parish Council have discussed the proposed route at length and have made the decision to utilise the piece of land originally purchased by the Council along the rear of the Churchyard access being gained from the Bridleway. The cost will be much less than original estimates for going through the Churchyard. A specification is being prepared for submission to contractors to enable quotations to be received.
The Council has expressed it's concern to Bucks CC that the full length of the Bridleway, recently resurfaced, was not completed up to the A4146. When further funds are available Bucks CC will review this matter.
Now that the M1 roadworks are virtually completed the Waste Disposal Companies have been instructed by the Bletchley Landfill Depot to use the M1/A5 route. The Council have observed a significant drop in the number of large waste disposal lorries travelling through the villages although one or two companies are not adhering to the instructions and large lorries carrying soil and other materials are still using the village roads. The situation will continue to be monitored.
Training lorry companies have been requested not to use Edlesborough High Street during 'drop off' and 'pick up' times at Edlesborough School.
Volunteers have come forward to help with collection of the litter constantly being left on The Green, in particular around the Pavilion, and the Memorial Hall. The Parish Council are extremely grateful to these volunteers.
The ditch adjacent to the Northall allotments has been cleared to prevent properties along the A4146 being flooded, other drains have been cleared by Bucks CC.
In future the Agenda for Edlesborough Parish Council monthly meetings will include an 'Open Forum' item thus allowing parishioners the opportunity of attending the meeting to raise any questions they wish to put to the Council.
Council agreed a precept of £62,500 a 3.7% increase on 2008
Planters have been installed at various locations around the villages and will be planted up in the Spring.
