Rawreth PC held their last meeting before their summer break, and as usual offered their usual hospitality to any members of the public who came along – on this occasion, tea, coffee and swiss roll.
A lot of subjects were covered – here are a few details:
West Rayleigh Sewage works – still a lot of unhappiness with the situation. Anglian Water have been making some efforts to improve things – for example, they are going to install CCTV to make sure that vehicles leaving the site are properly sheeted. However the Parish Council is going to contact Mark Francois MP and the District Council over a particular issue that they are very concerned about (we’ll probably write a bit more about this in a couple of weeks)
The Thin Blue Line Parish Councillor Rita Coombs raised the issue of a blue line that has been drawn just inside the perimeter of Rawreth Playing Field, presumably as an instruction to dog owners to keep their dogs on the edge of the field. However Rita didn’t think that there had been any consultation on this from the District Council. She also said that if you followed the line there wasn’t room fro two dogowners to comfortably pass one another.
Grass Verges Parish Council Chairman Alistir Matthews said that some grass verges were still overgrown and in a dangerous state – there was some criticism of County Highways for not looking after them better.
Their next meeting is on the first Wednesday in September.
