Moulton play area architects told to 'get a wriggle on'

More news, no ads


Architects who are designing a long-awaited play area have been told to ‘get a wriggle on’.

Moulton Parish Council is the closest it has been in decades to delivering a play area - according to re-elected chairman Andrew Woolf at the authority’s meeting last week.

The parish council has been granted an acre by park owners, South Holland District Council, to put in a park and car park - and it is hoped the project is due to finish in 12 months.

Coun Woolf told the council’s annual general meeting that the clerk had finally received an update from the architects, Influence.

He said: “They did come back and the hold-up is at the district council. They are trying to arrange a meeting with two people at the district council.

“What I have said is that we go back to Influence and say that their engagement is with Moulton Parish Council. It will need some district council input but in terms of what we want can we get a wriggle on?”

Coun Carl Wright asked for the district council, which was installing an entrance to the park, to be chased on this matter. He said: “They are setting themselves up for whatever they have got for the next stage.”

Earlier in the meeting Coun Woolf said: “This is the closest we have been to deliver a play area for Moulton in decades. We hope that comes to fruition in the very near future.”

l Resident Vernon Ingham asked if parish councillors could apply 'some pressure' onto the district council over the brown bin collection after waiting months to subscribe to the scheme. He said: “There are a lot of people waiting and we don’t want to be trooping up to the tip. This is supposed to be a green initiative.”

l The council has a vacancy after Coun Eric Parker has resigned for personal reasons. He was thanked by the chairman.

l Coun Geoff Cooper was once again elected vice-chairman.

He reported that a table with seats in Moulton Seas End Playing Field had been damaged.

l The meeting was also told Moulton Seas End beacon will be lit to mark the Queen’s Jubilee on June 2 and residents are planning to have inflatables on playing field on June 4.

l The parish's speed indicator device recorded motorists travelling along Moulton Chapel road at speeds of 88mph.

l The parish's annual meeting will be held at Moulton Chapel Community Centre at 7pm on Tuesday, June 7, where residents are invited to attend to speak to councillors about issues which they are facing in the parish.
