POLICE 

Apologies were received from the local PCSO and the following report was submitted;

There has been a recent epidemic of fly tipping in Rostherne. As a general the police don’t investigate CCTV activity as it normally falls in the remit of the Borough Council. There may be CCTV cameras attached to houses in the area that residents could check.

Please be extra vigilant and if you see any suspicious activity please report it     immediately to Crimestoppers on 101 or email the Parish Council via

CLLR MACRAE 

Cllr Macrae informed the meeting of the following:

 

Planning 

There are currently no local planning applications.

 

Signs 

The Tatton signs have been installed.

The gateway signs have been done but the Rostherne logo is required in a different format.

The Ciceley Mill Lane bollards are in the pipeline.

New signs will be erected on the old Chester Road as traffic still think it is a dual carriageway once they exit the motorway.

 

Speed Monitoring 

Ashley Road is being commissioned, times of the day for monitoring is vital. A weight restriction on Cherry Tree Lane and Marsh Lane is still in

discussion.  Bucklow Hill to Mere junction will have speed activation cameras.


HIGHWAY ISSUES TO REPORT

 

It was reported that Rostherne Lane is still in a state and has not been cleaned, since it was previously reported. It was asked if the Utility Company will be dealing with the dips in the road on Rostherne and Marsh Lane. The grid outside The Vicarage is still blocked and has the tag still attached. The same can be said for the grid on Ciceley Mill Lane. The Clerk will liaise with CEC.

 

REPORT FROM FISHER GERMAN: 

Works are scheduled to take place on roadside trees. Fly-tipping – Please be vigilant of unusual vehicles/vehicles carrying waste.
