This preliminary summary is published in The Stradbroke Monthly

The full minutes are available at the Library after they have been signed off at the next Parish Council Meeting

3 members of the public attended the meeting. Nothing was brought to the attention of the meeting at the

Prior to the start of the meeting a presentation was given by Stuart Murdy of Stradbroke Pool and Anselm Gurney

of SLM on the proposal to install a gym facility at the pool. The Parish Council fully supported this, envisaging

a very real benefit for both residents of Stradbroke and those from further afield. The proposal was in the early

stages of development but it was hoped that if planning permission were granted then the plans could move on quite quickly. It was hoped a further
presentation could be given at the Annual Parish Meeting.

It has been brought to the attention of the Parish Council that some owners are allowing their dogs to defecate alongside the Permissive Path. Although the Path
runs out of the village that does NOT make it any more acceptable for dog
owners to refuse to clear up after their

Please remember that the Permissive Path exists as a result of the courtesy of the land owners (NOT the Parish Council) so would you want to be responsible for losing this valuable village amenity?

Court House to Willow Close - Trevor has been asked by residents to clear the rubbish that had built up in this area.

Do please note that this is NOT an area covered by Trevor’s work schedule and he should not be asked to clear it. In
February, as an act of public-spiritedness he did do some clearing up here but
please be aware it is not his responsibility, rather it is that of the
residents of the village not to throw litter around. If any residents have an issue with street cleaning please do not harass
Trevor but speak to the Clerk.

Cllr McGregor reported that he hoped to be able to find funding partners to facilitate the resurfacing of the area around the Court House and on the path
to Willow Close. Without a partnership
operation this could not be undertaken within the narrow confines of the
Highways budget now this was to be so severely curtailed.

The next meeting of the Parish Council: 08 April 2010 at 7.30pm

The ANNUAL PARISH MEETING will be held in the Community Centre on Thursday, 29 April 2010 commencing at 7.30pm.Refreshments will be served after the meeting.
