January 2016 – Report to Market Deeping Town Council

Here is my monthly SKDC District Council report.

Deepings Library
Thank you for your support over the last two and a half years. It is fantastic news that, after all the threats and shenanigans of the Tories at LCC, we are able to re-open a refurbished library with paid staff and adequate materials. All residents are welcome to attend the official opening by Jonathan Foyle at 10am on Saturday 30th January.

Wildlife
As mentioned last month, Cllr Broughton, Cllr Neilson and I are hoping to persuade SKDC to leave a 10m strip of grass at the top of Tattershall Drive to grow ‘wild’ to encourage wildlife. We would also like the Town Council to support our request for a tidy ‘horseshoe’ of long grass around one of the trees which would also provide a place for youngsters to play.

Boundary Changes
I attended last week’s MDTC Planning and Highways to listen to concerns about the proposed LGBCE boundary changes for County Council wards. Please find attached a representation that I have drafted as a result. I hope the Town Council will be able to support the alternative wards proposal therein.

Meetings
I plan to attend a Communities PDG on Thursday 14th Jan and SKDC Full Council on Thursday 21st Jan.

Happy New Year!
