Council News - February 2010

ETHERINGTON ARMS PURCHASE

The second public meeting is to be held on Wednesday 3rd March 2010 at 7.00 pm in the Council Offices.  All residents are welcome to attend and have their say.

HOLTON LE CLAY FESTIVAL DAY

The Parish Council have set a date for a Holton le Clay Festival Day for Saturday 10th July 2010.  Please make a note in your diaries.  If successful it is planned for this to be an annual event with the support of the community.

HOLTON LE CLAY YOUTH – VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

A meeting is being held on Wednesday 24th February 2010 with visitors from East Lindsey to give an update on Youth matters in the District and to discuss the support and way forward for the village youth and volunteers.

LITTER PICKER

Andy the Street Clean Operator has resigned and his last day was Friday 12th February 2010.  We are waiting to hear if there is a replacement.  In the meantime Cyril will continue emptying the bins.  All parishioners are requested to ensure that rubbish is placed in the bins provided. 

LOUTH ROAD DYKES AROUND CLAY LANE AREA

After an inspection from East Lindsey District Council of the Dykes on Louth Road it was apparent that illegal dumping had taken place that have contributed to the flooding in the area.

Flooding caused by dumping not only is dangerous and damaging to persons property but an offence that carries heavy fines, apart from making the village an eyesore it is totally unnecessary to dump grass box cuttings and other materials in these water ways.

TURNING ROUNDABOUTS

Residents are requested not to park at the end of the turning roundabouts in particular on Collection Day.  The refuge vehicle is unable to drive around the roundabout consequently he has to mount the roundabout causing damage.

NEW TREE PLANTING – TETNEY LANE ON BEND NEAR BENCH

6 new trees will be planted on the green area on the bend and one tree on the opposite side.  It is hoped that the planting of the new trees will prevent illegally parking occurring and will also enhance this area for the future.

HORSES

HORSE RIDING IS NOT PERMITTED AT THE 8 ACRES PLAYING FIELDS

DOGS FOULING

We ask all dog holders to be responsible and clean up after their pets.  This includes 8 Acres playing fields, all pavements and walkways including the old railway line.  If anyone witnesses dog fouling they are to report it to the ELDC on 01507 601111 and ask for Dog Warden or text DOG to 07781481328.
Reminder – if you do not clean up after your dog, you could incur a £75.00 on the spot fine with a maximum penalty of £1000.00.

DOGS

NO DOGS ALLOWED IN JUNIOR PLAYING FIELDS

A reminder that dogs are not allowed in the Junior Playing Fields – this is the small green area where the children’s playground equipment is in between Garthway and Louth Road.

GRASS VERGES

We would ask all car owners/drivers to kindly not park on the grass verges but to use their driveways whenever possible or on the road.  Parking on grass verges not only ruins the grass but makes it very difficult for the grass cutters.

AMENITY GRASS CUTTING DATES

The next schedule cut is in March 2010.
