Ongoing Parish Council Work


Ongoing PC Works
February 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
Brenchley Parish Council

Noticeboards in Matfield
A new Noticeboard will be erected outside Hammond's Butchers shortly, this will have covered doors for the Parish Council and for Community Notices.

Postbox in Matfield
The existing postbox outside Cherrytrees remains in use for the time being. Royal Mail have agreed that a new box will be erected in the coming weeks.

Post Office in Matfield
The outreach is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings at Matfield Village Hall. All are encouraged to use this important facility to ensure its longevity.

Potholes on Maidstone Road
KCC have filled some of the larger potholes on Maidstone Road and continue to assess the drain problem near the Kippings Cross roundabout.

Matfield Pond
An Exemption Certificate for the removal and movement of the silt has been lodged with the Environment Agency. John Miles has kindly filled in the large holes in the bank along the Avenue.

War Memorials
Burslems will be undertaking cleaning of both memorials in the coming weeks. There will be some re-engraving where necessary and the addition of one name missing from the Brenchley Memorial.
