9066. MINUTES OF PARISH COUNCIL MEETING – Monday 25th November, 2013 accepted as a true record.

9067. CRIME AND DISORDER – Sgt. A. Downie talked about the increasing issue of Youth Anti-Social Behaviour, there is now a dedicated presence on a Friday and Saturday night of at least 2 PCSO’s. Switching the lights off the MUGA on Carr Lane has had a detrimental effect by forcing gangs out onto High Street and the rest of Warsop. He has asked MDC to have the lights on till 9pm, MDC have agreed to keep them on to 7.30/8.00pm but this is not late enough, Cllr. Shields said that he would see if he could get it increased. This will help the Police as they will be in the one area and not be bothering people out on the streets. He asked the PC if they would set the priorities for Warsop, all members agreed they should set just 1 priority to tackle Youth Anti-Social Behaviour.  The next meeting for set the priorities will be 16th April and 6th August.

PUBLIC PARTICIPATION :

  1. Tracy Brown talked about identifying an area for retail development, Cllr. Crawford said there is one, the Eastwood site, which was earmarked for Tesco but no information is forth-coming as to what is happing to the site. The word is that it has been sold to a developer but whether that is the whole of the original Tesco site or just part of it, no-one seems to know. Mark Wilkinson, Conservation Officer gave hand-outs to everyone which explained the criteria for changes to shop fronts in the Conservation area, he gave a detailed talk as to why we have to conserve the shops we have back to traditional if feasible.  Cllr. Kerr commented that in his view it is better to have shops open for business rather than derelict because people cannot afford wooden windows and doors whilst UPVC is so much cheaper. Mark commented that there did used to be grants available to help achieve the traditional look but with cut-backs there is nothing.
  2. Two members of the FOTC asked for the support of the PC, Cllr. Kerr told them that they have always had the support of the PC and they will fight to get the mill dam dredged and he confirmed that there is £60,000 in MDC’s budget to do this. Pam explained that this is just a start they will need an extra £40,000 to complete the project to return the Carrs to its former glory.
