Message from Our Policeman

Wrea Green Residents

Firstly I would like to welcome you to the first of my updates using the In The Know service. I aim to send regular updates via this service to keep the residents of Wrea Green in touch with local Police operations and local crimes. I will also send information regarding significant incidents that may affect day to day living in the village. This might include road traffic collisions or suspicious activity.

Update Police have arrested two local males linked to a recent spate of burglaries in the Warton/Freckleton area. These crimes are a reminder to be mindful of home security during the warmer months.

Please make sure windows and doors on your homes, garages and sheds are secured when you're away from home or when sleeping.

Other measures you may want to consider are:

Key operated locks should be fitted to all your windows and doors.

Fit good quality deadlocks to your exterior doors.

Install a movement sensitive light outside your external doors.

Fit a light timer devise for you main rooms.

Have a chain and peep hole on your front door.

Consider fitting a letterbox restrictor to prevent theft of mail or access to your locks.

Keep your car or house keys out of view but in an easily accessible place, not in door lock.

Before opening the door ask for callers’ identification.

Fitting a Burglar alarm will greatly improve your household security. ·

Protectively mark your valuable property.

You can do this simply by using an Ultra –violet pen to mark your property with your full postcode.

Thank you

Minutes of Parish Council – 12 Nov

M INUTES OF THE MEETING OF
RIBBY WITH WREA PARISH COUNCIL

Held At  Wrea Green Institute

On 12 NOVEMBER 2012 at 20.00 Hours

 

Present: Cllr. Mrs. J.L. Wardell (Chairman), Cllrs. J.W. Dobson,  K.J. Lupton, J.M. Molyneux, Mrs. P.A. Naylor, and Mrs. C.E. Wheatman,

 

There were three members of the public in attendance.

 

13/96 APOLOGIES and DECLARATION of INTERESTS

1.1.  Apologies: Cllrs. J.C. Maskell, Mrs. A.E. Uphill, and Br. Cllr. F.A. Andrews.

1.2.  Declarations of Interests: None.

 

2. Written Requests for New SPI Dispensation:  None received.

 

13/97 The MINUTES of the Meeting of the 15 October and 1 November 2012, which had previously been circulated to all councillors, were approved and signed by the Chairman.

 

13/98 POLICE, CRIME and DISORDER

1.Report from Community Beat Officer – PC Gary Cross advised that there had been three reported crimes since the last full Council meeting – all at Ribby Hall Leisure Village. A detected cosmetics theft at the Spa Hotel, and two burglaries involving the theft of a camera and two laptops from a caravan and an x-box from another caravan.

The PACT priorities this month are illegal parking on pavements, speeding through the village and the printing of a newsletter for circulation.

The Chairman thanked the police for their presence at the Remembrance Service.

PC Cross agreed to follow up the situation of two large vehicles which had been parked on Ribby Avenue causing obstruction. They are currently situated on Willow Drive.

2. National Road Safety Week -

The Clerk advised that BAe Systems had agreed a £500-00 grant to match that of the Parish Council as long as the money was spent on banners on the inbound sections of Ribby Road and Bryning Lane.  BAe will also put the National Road Safety week on their website and will target their workforce in the company newsletter.  

Ean Lewin has asked for councillors to approach householders on Ribby Road, Bryning Lane, Station Road, The Green and Moss Side Lane for permission to put up banners.

  13/99 PLANNING MATTERS

1. Applications:

12/0626     Ribby Hall Leisure Village

                        Proposed Two Storey Side Extension to Existing Office Building

No Objection.

 

12/0635     Land at Little Tarnbrick Farm, Blackpool Road, Kirkham

Outline Application for up to 180 Residential Units (Class C3)     Associated Infrastructure and Defined Access with Other Matters Reserved.

 

The meeting was opened from 20.20 hours to 20.21 hours.

The Council supports Kirkham Town Council and OBJECT to the proposal and recommend REFUSAL.

 

The proposed development is outside the Kirkham Town settlement area in designated countryside. Moreover, the development would form a new settlement clearly separate from the existing Kirkham built area as well as closing the buffer of open space between Kirkham and Westby with Plumptons parish.  Although there are currently surface water problems, with suitable drainage the land is clearly grade 3a category. Also the development of this site would intensify the flooding problems in this area. This development is not sustainable and there is no proven need and therefore does not meet the requirements as highlighted in the NPPF.  

2. Judicial Action Re Land Adjacent to Richmond Avenue – The meeting was opened from 20.22 hours to 20.36 hours. SWAG is pursuing the possibility of taking the judicial path and is currently obtaining barristers’ opinion on the strength of the case. The barrister involved is referring matters to a Q.C. SWAG will keep the Council advised of developments.

 13/100 RECREATION GROUNDS & OPEN SPACES

1. Wray Crescent Play Area Extension – 106 Moneys (13/85 1) -  The Clerk advised that the release of the 106 moneys was being put before the Borough Council on 21 November 2012. This Council would then have to join in an agreement indemnifying the borough on the basis that the moneys would be used in accordance with the 106 agreement.

2. The Millennium Clock Situation

The Clerk advised that the Millennium Clock needed a full inspection as only one face was showing the right time other than for short times. It would be appropriate to commission a firm of clock repairers to ascertain whether repair was cost effective.

Cllr. K.J. Lupton had some contacts and agreed that he would pursue this line.  It was RESOLVED  that any initial cost could be met within the Greens budget and that if the cost of rectifying the current problem could be met within £500-00 matters could progress without further recourse to a Council meeting.

2. Replacement of the Dub Noticeboard – The Clerk advised that the noticeboard had been stolen or thrown into the Dub and either way it was considered necessary to buy a replacement.  The Village Landscape Enhancement Committee (VLEC) has recommended that it is not replaced until the recommended full metal surround is also available.  When a replacement cost was available this could either be found within The Greens budget or alternatively included in the 2013/14 budget calculations. In line with the VLEC recommendation it was RESOLVED that before consulting a main line manufacturer, the Clerk would approach Alan Burrows to see if he could arrange for the overall article to be made.

 

13/101. FINANCIAL and STANDING ORDERS MATTERS

1..Financial Budget Comparisons for the Period Ended 31  October 2012

(Appendix 2) – The Clerk presented the account position in line with the financial information which had been circulated to councillors before the meeting.

13/104 PARISH COUNCIL MATTERS  

1.Christmas Switch On – Parish Council – Cllr. P.A. Naylor advised  that the tree was to cost £240-00 and other than the food situation all aspects were coming together.
