Ongoing Parish Council Work


Ongoing PC Works
September 2018

Dear Residents,

In order to provide up to date information on the various projects the Parish Council is working on, I shall be sending round this brief report monthly, in the two weeks between PC meetings. Further updates can be obtained via the Parish Council Minutes available on the website.

Whilst not all projects will have new information each time (depending on whether progress has been made) I hope this will serve to give you a better idea of how tasks are progressing.

Kind regards,

Chantal Brooks

War Memorials
The Memorials will be mowed and tidied in readiness for the armistice commemoration events on 11th November.

Matfield Pond
The small amount of knotweed has been treated and the removal of the weeds is scheduled for w/c 24 September.

Matfield Green
The parking area is scheduled for relaying with heavy duty performatting (through which grass will grow) in early October. It will be extended to 80m along the roadside.

Brenchley Recreation Ground
Trees around the Scout Hut have been trimmed back. The entrance gate has been cleared of ivy ready for repainting and signage.

Brenchley Playground
A consultant has been asked for quotes to repair and enhance the playground. The fence has been repaired and a closer will be added to the gate.

A new, covered green bin is being put at the playground (on the barked area in the centre) and the old concrete bin is being removed. The bench behind the swings will be moved.

A review of the mowing contract has been undertaken to ensure frequencies are adequate for next year's contract, quote being obtained.

A new Union Jack will be raised at the Pavilion shortly.

There has been continued take-up of allotment plots and the site is now almost fully active, only 2 small plots remain free and it is hoped that one large plot will be divided into smaller ones in the coming year.
