Past Parish Council Reports for Barnack, Bainton and Ufford

Parish Council Reports March 2018

News from Bainton& Ashton Parish Council

The council last met on 6th February.  Much of the evening’s business involved regular financial, police and speedwatch reporting.  Key items of interest were:

•Date of the 2018 Apple and Cider Day.  The council is keen to repeat the success of last year’s first event.  In 2018, the date will be brought forward, to Sunday 16th September, to make the most of the harvest for early pressing.  A date for your diary, with more details will be announced later in the year.

•Traffic speed has been an ongoing issue in both Bainton and Ashton, particularly with an increase in heavy vehicles travelling through the parish.  Councillors are investigating the possibility of introducing a number of initiatives, including a 20mph zone, street furniture and signage to slow and reduce the amount of through traffic, through Ashton particularly. Work on this continues and in the meantime the council agreed to press Peterborough Highways on their promise of 30mph traffic markings that have not yet been implemented.

One planning application was noted, had been refused by planning officers but succeeded with conditions on appeal to Committee.  The council also noted the proposed submission version of Peterborough’s Local Plan.
