8716. CRIME AND DISORDER – PCSO Sharon Brown introduced herself, she is the replacement for Gina Fletcher who has moved to Retford. She has been a PCSO for 8 years but is new to Warsop, she is settling well and is enjoying getting to know everyone. She read out the latest crime statistics which are significantly down on this time last year.

PUBLIC PARTICIPATION
1. Mr. Downie – Raised his concerns about Tesco and the parking issues in the town.
2. Mrs. Jackson – Spoke about her plans for Blakeley Lane Scout Camp. Although a recent planning application was put in as commercial use, which has now been withdrawn, she wished to make it clear that the site is to be used by youth groups, scouts, guides, shine and any other community groups. She also spoke about the parties that were held there and after several complaints, this will not be repeated.

The Chairman allowed a short time for questions from Councillors. He also asked Mrs. Jackson for a site visit and added that the Parish Council would support a planning application if this will benefit the community.

8717. MATTERS ARISING PP
1. The Chairman suggested that the Traders Association be re-formed.
1a.With regard to car parking it was suggested that a letter from the Parish Council to all traders to be sent out to be followed up by a visit from Councillors.

8718. PLANNING & APPLICATIONS
a. Rose Cottage, Sookholme Lane – Extensions
b. 1 Moorfield Cottages – Listed Building appl for en-suite
c. Town Hall – Replacement windows
d. 1 North Street – Garage extension to side
Tesco – Planning application has now been granted.

8719. WARSOP TOWN HALL – Cllr. H. Kochanowski told the group about FEI pulling out due to CRT funding being cut and has received a notice to quit at the end of March, this will leave the Town Hall finances in a pretty bad way without the rent on such a large office. There have been problems with the central heating boiler, which has been repaired but at a cost, the heating engineers advice was to get it changed asap, we have had 3 quotes but funding is the issue. Members of the management team are to meet later this week to look at funding streams. It was agreed to use the £12,500 dilapidations money as match funding, for heating, insulation and new windows. A meeting has been arranged with Alan Meale for Friday 21st January to discus the Town Hall, FEI and Shine. As the Clerk’s workload has increased considerably since taking on the Town Hall, Cllr. Kochanowski suggested a part-time admin assistant to the Clerk be employed to take some of the workload and to cover for holidays and sickness. It was agreed to look into this further.

8720. THE CARRS – A litter pick was held this morning. The Environmental Agency have approved a licence to testing and analysing the water and silt on the site and this will now take place and the application for funding will now be made. It is hoped to have news of this bid for the next issue of Warsop and District News. The 4 new picnic tables purchased with a donation from Meden Valley Making Places have now been installed. The next meeting will be held on Tuesday 13th March at 7.30pm in the Hare and Hounds. Everyone is welcome to attend.

8721. WARSOP CHRISTMAS MARKET – A debrief meeting has been held and the feedback was positive, a very successful and most enjoyable night was had by all.

8722. MARKET WARSOP PLAYERS CHRISTMAS PANTOMIME – 4 out of the 5 shows were sell-outs and feedback from the community has been amazing. The cast thoroughly enjoyed themselves and can’t wait to start again for this year.

8723. LOTTERY – Sub-group meetings have been held to establish ideas to get more of the community groups on board, a mobile roadshow has been suggested. The next meeting of the interim steering group will be held at the beginning of February.
8724. SHINE – Kev received a letter from MDC Planning advising him that he is in breach of the planning application for change of use, as there is no heating in the building and the toilets are inadequate, so he has had no choice but close for time being. Kev is looking at temporary alternatives using Meden Sports Centre and Unit 2000. The unfortunate result of shine being closed is that the youth no have nowhere to go, so they are back on the streets and anti-social behaviour is on the increase.

8725. MEDEN BATHS – SOS meeting on Thursday 19th January at 6pm in the Town Hall. Bev Smith, Corporate Director, MDC will be attending the meeting to give an update.

8726. CARNIVAL – AGM was postponed to Tuesday 31st January at 6pm in the Town Hall. Everyone welcome to attend.

8727. WARSOP AND DISTRICT NEWS – Slightly increased advertising rates from January edition, plus charge for artwork to go to Karen. Suggest an increase in deliverers wages £6 per 100. Agreed unanimously.

8728. CASUAL VACANCY – Expressions of interest were received from Mr. W. Carter and Mr. D. Evans. A secret ballot took place, 9 members were present, The Clerk counted the votes 5 for Mr. Evans and 4 for Mr. Carter.
RESOLVED: Mr. Derek Evans was co-opted onto the Parish Council and will sign his declaration at the February meeting.

8730. F&GP MEETING – Copies of minutes for information.

8731. THE QUEEN’S DIAMOND JUBILEE BEACONS – It was decided, in principal, that it would be good for the Parish to have a beacon. 3 sites were suggested, Warsop Vale pit tip, Welbeck pit tip (bonfire beacons) and the Parish Church tower (gas beacon). More information is required as to whether we can have more than one and also the cost implications have to be taken into consideration and who will pay. The gas beacon costs £299.00 + VAT but there will have to be insurance, risk assessments etc. It was also suggested that a street party be organised on High Street or a gathering on the Carrs. There is plenty of time to register, applications have to be in by 30th April, more information is required before any definite decisions can be made.

8732. PRECEPT - This was deferred until the February meeting.
