Mr.Fernley asked if tractors could be stopped from using Wellhead Lane, the PCSO will speak to Highways. If night time noise is a problem contact Environmental Services at NKDC there is an emergency number. PCSO Duckworth will attend the Nocton Dairies meeting on Friday and PCSO Flannigan on Saturday.

3) Public Questions:
What are the P.C. going to do about the beck? It is the responsibility of NKDC, the clerk will report it. Riparian owners have the responsibility of keeping the water course clean and free flowing.
What has happened to the land opposite the houses on Wellhead Lane? NKDC have placed a TPO on the whole field. A hedge is obstructing the footpath along The Avenue, the clerk will write to the owner. The hedge alongside The Hall grounds and Main Street have still not been cut back by LCC Highways.
