The Parish Council meeting held on Tuesday 3rd March was attended by 8 councillors and well supported by numerous residents. Although Cllr Barber was absent, we welcomed back from sick leave our County Councillor Mike Fox-Davies.
There were various accounts of incidents caused by Storms Ciara, Dennis & Jorge, but thankfully at the time of writing, none had involved any homes being flooded. The Council expressed it’s thanks to all those residents who assisted in the clearing of fallen trees, “mucking out” blocked drains and lifting manhole covers to divert floodwater, in particular Martin Mobbs for his prompt action at the Ginge in Stocks Lane, Andrew Bolton and Cllrs Bennett & Clark for their effort in clearing the flood in front of the School.
During the course of remedial action, useful contacts were made with the Environment Agency and they, together with Milton PC, were made aware of the blockage causing the Ginge to back up in our Parish. This momentum will be continued with the process of drafting Emergency Contingency Plans to protect & assist residents in various adverse scenarios. So, I would urge all those with relevant experience and resources to respond to the request in last month’s SN.

Councillor Fox-Davies informed us that Drayton Recycling Centre will be closed on 28th & 29th April to enable a deep clean to take place. The nearest alternative centres at Stanford in the Vale or Redbridge Oxford will be open on these days.
At the time of writing, the new Hanney Road pedestrian crossing was nearing completion and has already been warmly welcomed by school parents. The PC agreed to installing the Traffic recorder to monitor it’s effectiveness in reducing average speeds and will report at April’s meeting.

Thank you to all those that responded to the recent Housing Questionnaire, we received over 250 completed forms, a significant increase upon 2017, and are now engaged in analysing the data and incorporating the conclusions in our draft housing policies

There have been many rumours and concerns expressed about the potential re-development of the ex-Lee Magum factory site behind the Co-op and the loss of amenities. After discussion at our meeting, it was decided that the PC would be proactive and seek a meeting with the developers prior to any planning application being submitted.

The next Parish Council meeting will be on Tuesday 7th April in the Village Hall starting @ 7.00 pm;  I hope to see many of you there.
In the meantime you can contact us at steventonpc@tiscali.co.uk or 01235 831024
