17.040 Minutes
The minutes from the Parish Council meeting of 13 th February, 2017, were agreed, and signed by the
Chairman.
17.041 Clerk’s Report
Finance
Section 137 expenditure limit for 2017/18 has been confirmed at £7.57 per household. (This is the amount the
Parish Council can spend on items not listed within the Powers and Duties).
The water bill for the allotment site has now been transferred to Castle Water Limited, following Thames
Waters’ decision to exit the retail market in the non-household retail services from 1 April, 2017.
In error, Martin Childs was paid instead of Martin Cook during the payment run. This was reversed immediately,
as reflected on the bank statement.
The deemed contract rate for the unmetered supply of street lighting has been reviewed by both Bucks CC (in
their project to bulk buy power) and E-on (the current supplier). Neither could improve on the current
Unmetered Supplies plan, even though the price was increasing from 14.40 per kWh to 15.75 per kWh.
It is anticipated that by the end of the financial year (30 th March, 2017), and the receipt of an outstanding VAT
return, the reserves will be in the region of £50k.
Burial Ground
The large memorial stone has been erected by Martin Cook.
Additions to graves needs to be addressed. (small fences, plastic grass, stone trinkets). The Clerk asks that as
these additions are contrary to the issued rules of the Burial Ground, letters are sent to, ‘respectfully remind the
families that the maintenance of the area is being obstructed by these additions and that as these are contrary
to the rules of the Burial Ground, so in order to keep the area mown and tidy, these items are removed. The
Parish Council can arrange for this to be done and hold on to the items for collection if the families are unable to
do it themselves.
Last year it was agreed that some of the yew trees were cut to ‘cups’ as they are looking rather tatty. Are there
any feelings over which trees shall be treated in this way? A quotation is being prepared for consideration at
the meeting.
Arla
The next meeting will be held on 25 th April at 6 pmDog fouling
The dog waste bins have been installed.
Village Hall
The wifi that is used in the Village Hall has undergone a review and the Clerk has now put this into her own
name at a cost of £20.99 per month for a period of 12 months. A reduction of about £25 per month.
Footpaths
A report has been submitted to BCC Rights of Way Team, detailing that Footpath no 14 has two signs on a
locked gate, warning of guard dogs. This is considered an illegal obstruction.
Mrs A Boscombe spoke with the Clerk, to ask about access to Monks Court via the bridleway BLD.3.1. She
stated that previously vehicular access had been granted by Joanne Taylor of BCC and in thanks, her
husband had resurfaced part of the bridleway. The Clerk referred her to speak with BCC again.
Grants
A meeting of the Gib Lane Fund Committee has been scheduled for 7pm on 27 th March, 2017. This is where
the parishes affected by the solar farm discuss the applications for funding. As far as I am aware, there
have been no applications from Buckland, but the funding will roll forward. (iro £2k pa for Buckland).
