Parish Plan

A ‘follow up’ meeting was held on 28th February which was well attended. A separate article gives full details.

PCSO Funding

A conflict of opinion has come about between Thames Valley Police and the Parishes regarding the amount of time spent by the PCSO in the Parish compared to the Parish Council funding. Edlesborough, Pitstone and Ivinghoe Parish Councils are extremely concerned that they will not be receiving 100% of the PCSO’s time and a meeting is being arranged between the Parishes and Thames Valley Police to clarify the situation.

Edlesborough Memorial Hall

Work is due to commence on replacement of the hall floor during the Easter period and the hall will be closed to the general public from 2nd – 12th April. The Parish Council are delighted to know that this long outstanding project will at last come to fruition.

Traffic Calming

The Parish Council are chasing up the provision of Dragons Teeth on the A4146 approaching Edlesborough from Northall.

Police Matters

Dangerous parking has become a serious problem in Edlesborough particularly on Saturday mornings whilst football matches are being played. Cars are parked wherever they can, on corners, both sides of Pebblemoor and blocking residents’ drives making it impossible for any emergency vehicle to access Pebblemoor etc. The Police are making patrols and the Parish Council request that car drivers of both home and away teams have more consideration when parking their cars and remind drivers that the car park at the rear of the Pavilion is available.

The continuing problem of anti-social behaviour appears to be increasing and the PCSO is doing all she can to combat the situation.

Dog Fouling/Litter

The amount of dog fouling not picked up and put in the Dog Litter bins is becoming a serious health hazard. There are many pedestrians who walk across The Green, small children playing and sports activities taking place and the Parish Council would remind dog walkers who do not pick up dog fouling are liable to a heavy fine. The Parish Council spend over £3000 a year for the bins to be emptied as a means of keeping the Parish in a clean, tidy and healthy state and would ask that Dog Walkers either use the bins supplied or bag and take away.

It has been observed that some of the ordinary Litter Bins around the Parish are being filled with ‘domestic’ waste such as disposable nappies, washing power and fabric conditioner containers. These public Litter Bins are for litter collected around the parish footpaths, open spaces and for small amounts of rubbish put in by passers by and NOT for any domestic waste, people are requested to use their own dustbins for this purpose.
