Dogs on Dagnall Allotments
Following many complaints about dogs fouling on Dagnall allotments the Council requests that dog walkers PLEASE:
- KEEP dogs on a short lead.
- DO NOT allow your dog to stray onto the allotment plots.
- ENSURE you clean up after your dog.
Following the success of Phase 1 of the Parish Councils new streetlight program the Council have now placed an order to replace all the existing SOX (orange) lights in Dagnall and Edlesborough with the new LED lights. This means that any SOX (orange) lights which are currently faulty will not be repaired instead they will be replaced with the new LED lights.
Please remember to report faulty streetlights to the Clerk who will then try to ensure these are replaced as a priority when the new installation of lights begins.
Following concern raised about hedge cutting disturbing nesting birds the Council have agreed to amend their routine hedge cutting program to ensure that hedges are not cut between 1st March and 1st August, following the NFU/EU and RSPB guidelines.
Please would Parishioners ensure that their own boundary hedges and trees do not cause obstruction to the roads, footpaths and pavements in and around the villages.
New Trees on Edlesborough Green
The EDaN Beautification team are currently finalising a tree planting plan for Edlesborough Green. Any parishioner wishing to sponsor a tree should contact the Parish Clerk.
The council have recently carried out repairs to the damaged porch roof at the front of the Pavilion on Edlesborough Green. To help combat further damage/vandalism anti climb paint will be applied to the edge of the roof.
Please could parishioners also asked their children to refrain from playing football in front of the pavilion as this results in numerous costly repairs needing to be carried put to the guttering etc.
The EDaN Traffic Management team are looking for volunteers to help man their Sentinel device. If you have an interest in slowing down traffic in the villages or are concerned about Road Safety please contact Louise Turner on 01442 834123 or by email at [email protected]
