SAMPFORDS’ PARISH COUNCIL
MINUTES OF MEETING
Held 18th February 2021 @ 8pm on Microsoft Teams
Cncl Simon Walshe SW Mrs Emma Bradford EB Kath Thompson KT Mr Gordon Deuce GD Mrs Jane Lawrence JL
Mr George Smith asked the question regarding the poor consultation for the development of Monks Hill and have we heard anything more regarding this?
JW stated that we have not heard anymore regarding this, it was initially stated that an appplication for planning was meant to be made in December 2020 however there has been no application made to the council. The Parish Council cannot make any comment on this until an application has been made. This is where the neighbourhood plan would be beneficial, we need input from parisioners. We count on your support, it would be appreciated. Nathan (member of public) - I would be happy to assist with this.
87.5 Pest Control tender
Current supplier is Rentokil. We are looking to re-tender the pest control contract. LH contacted 3 suppliers for quotes, 2 of which have been received. The question was asked whether we need to continue with
pest control, has there been activity? LH stated that there has been recent
activity identified in boxes. In the past there have been rats and mice due to
chickens located behind the park. Bins have been emptied. A point to note is that the bin has been removed from the top of the park area next to
the bench and a smaller bin placed on the ground near one of the bait boxes. This needs to be heightened due to attracting rodents.
CD mentioned that we have a duty of care to the public, especially children. If we were to have rodents in the park this would be a massive problem.
LH to forward quotations when received.
