POLICE REPORTS - Constable's County
The Police newsletters are now called Constable's County. These are issued bi-monthly and the last two editions will always be published for you to view. The December 19 and February 20 issues are available by clicking on the issue month you wish to read.
PARISH INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENT PLAN (PIIP) -
Thanks to everyone who contributed valuable ideas about where and how we should spend our CIL income, received as a result of the new developments in Palgrave. The final PIIP was approved at the October '19 meeting and is available to read by using the link to the published document, Adopted Palgrave PIIP. As the Speed Indicator Devices have been ordered, we must now decide the next project to spend money on, however large or small and this will be debated at the November meeting of the Parish Council.
LORRIES DRIVING THROUGH PALGRAVE - If you witness a HGV vehicle travelling on a restricted or unsuitable route, please lodge a complaint directly with Suffolk Highways via the reporting tool at https://www.suffolk.gov.uk/roads-and-transport/lorry-management/report-a-heavy-goods-vehicle-incident/ or you can contact the parish clerk. The more details you can provide, the more useful the information. Examples are Owner / Livery on the vehicle, registration number, date and time.
DISS AND DISTRICT NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN for full details of the Plan and Palgrave's involvement visit: http://www.dndneighbourhoodplan.co.uk. Ideally we are looking for another representative from the village to join the DDNP as a voice for local residents. If you are willing to attend monthly meetings alongside one of our Councillors, please contact the clerk who will provide further details.
TREE WARDEN - On behalf of the Suffolk Tree Warden Network, we are seeking a volunteer to become a Tree Warden for Palgrave. This is a fairly new initiative due to Mid Suffolk District Council no longer being able to co-ordinate the role. If you are keen, please contact the clerk and she can put you in touch with the relevant people.
2019 was an election year and as a result all Parish Councillors had to stand for re-election. Despite having an active Parish Council, we are still short of members and would like more people to come forward as potential Parish Councillors. If you feel passionate about Palgrave, please consider putting yourself forward. We still have 4 vacancies. So if you would like to contribute to the running of Palgrave, please contact the clerk or any Parish Councillor. The following link may be helpful:
