Hedge Removal - Bowtells Medow/Churchfields

 

The landowner has been asked to remove the hedge by the agent Lambert Smith Hampton, acting on behalf of Essex County Council. They are carrying out essential bridge works on Church fields.  The hedge has been coppiced out of the nesting season; it will be replaced with a greatly improved hedge of mixed native species as soon as works are completed (planned to commence April 2020).

 

The work involves:

1) To widen the existing dropped kerb on Church Road and install a vehicle access point from Church Road to existing Church Fields, to provide temporary diversion route to residents of Church Fields.

2) To create a temporary diversion to pedestrians over Bowtells meadow where required.

3) To carry out bridge required works to Church Fields Bridge, including but not limited to reinstatement and improvement

4) The meadow is to be used as a site compound and welfare unit with the remainder used for storage of materials, and working area.

5) On termination of bridge works, contractors will remove equipment, reinstate ground where appropriate.

Parish Handyman

The Parish Council has been successful in its funding

application to the Local Services Fund and has been

awarded £10,000 to appoint a Handyman to undertake

general maintenance tasks in the village.   Over the last couple of weeks, the Handyman has been working hard cleaning the bus shelter, clearing the vegetation from the local shop area and the leaf fall from the central part of the village, emptying the bins from the recreation and cemetery grounds.   It is hoped that the role will help to improve the look and tidiness of the village.

 

Community Defibrillator

The Parish Council has installed a defibrillator on the outside wall of the Reading Room.  This equipment is for use by any member of the public at any time in an emergency.  Instructions will be clearly marked on the defibrillator case and is designed to be used by individuals who have no prior knowledge or training.

 

Broadband

The Village Broadband Champsion, Mike Bursell, has been working hard to secure Superfast Broadband for the village.

Fast broadband is coming to all of Great Yeldham: at last! Super Fast Essex (SFE) already had plans to roll out Fibre to the Cabinet1 (FTTC) broadband (see table) to about half of the village, but Openreach (which was part of BT) have agreed to roll FTTC out to the rest of the village. The village needed to raise £1,171, and rather than ask residents, the following businesses in the village have very kindly agreed to provide the money between them as sponsors:

  • The English Distillery
  • The Gables Store
  • Just Wheel Repair
  • The Waggon and Horses
  • Ardmore Veterinary Surgery

Without them, this would not have happened, enormous thanks to them all.

 

The contract has been signed, and work for the entire village should be complete within 12 months – possibly much sooner for some or all addresses. You will be able to choose your Internet Service Provider (ISP) e.g. BT, TalkTalk, Plusnet, Vodafone. You may be able to upgrade to Fibre to the Premises2 (FTTP) (see table) for a charge.

 

County Broadband are investigating whether there is sufficient interest for faster FTTP (see table) broadband and are holding a meeting on the 10th October at 7.00pm in the Reading Rooms to discuss their plans. All are welcome.

Footnote:

1Fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) involves running fibre optic cables from the telephone exchange or distribution point to the street cabinets which then connect to a standard phone line to provide broadband. This is combined with a copper cable from the cabinet to the home or business which uses VDSL or similar technology that can deliver much faster speeds over shorter distances.

 

2 Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP), also often referred to as Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) provides and end-to-end fibre optic connection the full distance from the exchange to the building and can deliver faster speeds than FTTC as there is no copper leg at all.

 

Braintree District Council - Do It Online

We have recently launched a new area of a website called 'Do It Online' to 
help our customers easily access a range of Council services. Customers can 
pay, report, apply and register for services whenever and wherever is 
convenient for them from the front page of the website or from 
www.braintree.gov.uk/doitonline<http://www.braintree.gov.uk/doitonline

Customers visiting Causeway House will also have access to a dedicated 'Do 
It Online' area which has three self-service computers linked to the Do It 
Online section of the website along with the Gateway to Homechoice, Planning 
and Local Plan services and Essex County Council & Highway Services. 

This will be supported with campaigns throughout the year that promote our 
online services and encourage our customers to use them. 

A customer transacting their business online is cheaper for them and us and 
may be more convenient for those who are unable to visit us or struggle to 
make calls during the working day. Raising awareness of these services with 
our customers is important and we would appreciate your help to promote 
self-serve and make this campaign a success. 

Please take a look at this new area and give us your feedback.
