Update regarding replacing the three No Cold Calling Signs

Cllr Pullen advised that the additional wording of “funded by Northwood Parish Council” could not be included on any replacement signs, as this would infringe the official trademark. Having undertaken an inspection of all the signs, Cllr Pullen suggested that three of the four signs should be replaced, this was approved at a cost of £32 each.

“Welcome to Cowes” sign, Newport Road
Discussion ensued on the “Welcome to Cowes” sign, situated along the Newport Road at the entrance to Northwood, when travelling from Newport. Cllr Mazillius, by way of an email, reminded that this matter had been considered some 7 years ago by the Community Partnership, but not pursued. He suggested that the Clerk of Cowes Town Council, Mr Roger Hendy, might be able to provide some clarity on the situation. It was decided that the Clerk writes to the Clerk of Cowes Town Council to seek his recollection and views on the possible re-positioning of the “Welcome to Cowes” sign, situated along the Newport Road, at the entrance to Northwood.
Northwood in Bloom Working Party
Cllr Pullen passed a copy of the established planting scheme for the tubs and planters in the village, to the clerk. It was suggested for the scheme to be reviewed, particularly as no information had yet been forthcoming from the IW Council as to whether grant funding would be available again this year. Councillors considered that the planting scheme was rather generous and care was required now to ensure only a small contingency remained after filling the tubs. Mention was made of the timetable for ordering and receipt of the summer planting, which Cllr Pullen volunteered to undertake.
Approval of the Precept for 2013/14
The proposed Precept for 2013/14 had been advertised for comments in the Northwood News. However, no responses had been received from local residents. The clerk questioned whether at the meeting of the Finance and General Purposes Committee meeting held on December 20th , any financial implications for the Parish Council had been confirmed. The clerk queried if councillors wished to delay taking a decision on the Precept.
It was agreed that the proposed Precept of £14,700, be approved.
Safer Neighbourhood Report
There had been a total of 17 calls to police, a slight increase on normal, over the past 30 days. These were for a variety of reasons, with the following crimes of note:
•    Two recorded crimes
•    1 Public Order incident with a person arrested and charged for the offence
•    1 drug related incident, as a direct result of the random stop and searching of vehicles being undertaken
•   A couple of incidents of a mini moto being driven in Venner Avenue. This apparently had now ceased as the vehicle in question had been reported as stolen from an address in Newport
•    Several calls reporting suspicious incidents
•    Remaining calls related to persons suffering with mental health problems. These incidents had been dealt with in conjunction with the Mental Health teams. This included an incident the previous week when a police helicopter had been used.
I have a supply of No Cold Calling window stickers, paid for by the Parish Council, if anybody needs one.
Ring 01983 281250 if you need a Sticker.
Do not forget Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. You do not need to identify yourselves and the calls are not recorded.
