WELL AT PETSOE – The parish council has been made aware that the well at Petsoe End is in need of extensive repair. Following a site visit by a stone mason, he has advised that removal of two trees causing damage to the well is required before an assessment for repair can be undertaken.
PARKING RESTRICTIONS (OLNEY ROAD) – Following the initial consultation from the Neighbourhood Plan, many residents raised concerns regarding the rat running and speeding in Olney Road. Milton Keynes Council highways were asked to come up with a solution to help the situation. An officer visited and recommended that alterations to the parking restrictions be made in order to permit some roadside parking in Olney Road close to Emberton Park. MKC will be drawing up plans and making recommendations which will then be put to the village for their initial thoughts.
PLUG (PARK LIAISON USER’S GROUP) – PLUG meetings have been re-instated at the request of both the parish council and Ward Councillors. These meetings deal with the operational procedures of the park and are attended by Emberton Parish Council, Olney Town Council, Olney Ward Councillors, MKC officers, Fishing Association, Sailing Club, SCORA (caravans), Friends of Emberton Park and previously a member from the Naval Cadets. The next meeting will be held on Thursday 20th June at 7.30pm at the park.
