It may seem to you that parts of the village are still not being maintained – and in some cases you’d be right! At this point our issue is to identify those parts of the village that fall within our responsibility and to maintain those and those alone. In parallel, we will work with other authorities to ensure that they either take responsibility for what is theirs or to arrange to fund the Village to take on the work involved. We want to fix the cause not just the symptoms. To this end we had a positive meeting with WSCC to talk through some of those “who does what” questions. It will take some time to organise but it is now very much “work in progress”.
