The Parish Council have had many correspondences from residents questioning why the pond on The Green has been left to empty.
For a long time, the water in the pond has been naturally draining away and been topped up by the tap on the village green as rainwater was not enough to sustain it. It was felt by the council that this was irresponsible as this not only wasted water but was costing a considerable amount of money.
Over the past six months the Parish Council have been very concerned about the pond and have been researching what is the best course of action. The council have enlisted a number of experts to inspect the pond to provide advice. This is currently still underway and the council are hopeful to receive recommendations about the action required soon.
This subject will remain an agenda item at the Environment Committee’s meeting until this situation is resolved.
