Vacancies for Parish Councillors
Currently Edlesborough Parish Council is still concerned that it has no representation from Dagnall Ward and would again request that if there is anyone who has the future of Dagnall and the parish at heart and would be willing to stand as a Councillor would they please contact the Clerk, details below.
Further to the report in the February issue of Focus Thames Valley Police would like to hear from anyone who may witness a dog fouling and it not being picked up by the owner. If anybody knows these culprits a short statement is all that is required which will be completely confidential. Thames Valley Police will be carrying out patrols but unless this situation is seen to be happening they are unable to take further action. Parishioners may respond to either the Clerk or direct to PC Jared Levens at Thames Valley Police or to one of the PCSOs. The provision of dog bins is of benefit to all parishioners but spoilt by those who decide not to use them. The annual cost of purchasing new bins and having them emptied throughout the year is in excess of £3,500.
The Parish Council have congratulated Bucks CC on the efficient way that it dealt with the recent snow problems and have also requested that due to the school buses, and drivers using Pebblemoor as a short cut to reach the A4146, this road should also be included in next Winter's Gritting programme.
Dagnall 'Build Out'
Problems have arisen regarding the installation of a 'build out' or traffic island and other safety traffic calming measures are being considered.
Edlesborough Sewerage system
The Parish Council are in communication with Anglian Water and hoping to have a site meeting to discuss the problems encountered throughout the village.
Vale of Aylesbury Plan
The Parish Council agreed to complete an AVDC questionnaire indicating that it considers that only small scale development (up to 10 houses) is appropriate within Edlesborough. A copy of an analysis of the Parish Plan Questionnaire data, relating to housing and commercial development within the villages of Edlesborough, Dagnall and Northall was attached as supporting evidence.
