Draft minutes of Gartmore Community Council meeting on Wednesday 2nd August 2017
Present.......Janet Billett, Ian Dinwoodie, Janey Fleming, Chris Sheldon, Wayne Glasse-Davies, Gerry McGarvey.
Jeremy McDonald SDC, Anne Sobey NP, Douglas Baillie SDC,
4 members of the public
Minutes of last meeting...........These were approved GM/ID
Anne Sobey NP gave us an overview and update on the progress of the Community Action Plan for Gartmore which it is hoped will be completed by November. There will be another drop-in session in the village hall for people to put their views, and there has been quite a good response from the household survey and the first drop-in session.
Douglas Baillie SDC brought us up to date with the progress of superfast broadband towards the village, but although Gartmore is supposed to be getting Fibre to the Premises which is the best of all possible options it is still extremely unclear as to the timescale.
Dog fouling....the problem seems to be less severe and there are poo bags in the shop. Posters are coming soon and JB will be out with the pink spray where and when necessary.
Cemetery trees.....SDC admit the 3 silver birches have been killed by strimmer damage so we will ask them for compensation for replacement trees.
Waste services......the CC is still receiving complaints about the pull-out service and will write again to SDC.
Police report.......no police were able to attend the meeting and there was nothing of significance in their written report.
Planning.......The CC supports the application to rebuild Viewfield but would like it to be a condition that the back lane is reinstated and kept clear as far as possible.
Trust Report.......The minutes of the Trust are in the folder in the shop.
Treasurer's report......There is £617.86 in the CC account.
AOB.......New councillor Jeremy McDonald introduced himself and will follow up some of the points raised at the meeting. The councillors are looking at more pro-active ways to meet people and serve them than the present system of surgeries.
Date of next meeting.....Wednesday 4th October 2017 at 8pm
