Latest Parish Council News

Woodford Parish Council agreed to increase the Council Tax by £500, which for a Band D property equates to an increase of approximately 90pence per year. The main reason for this increase is that the Council is now responsible for the street lighting in Paddock Road and Windmill Close.

A grant has been obtained to improve the final kissing gate on the footpath between Woodford and Woodford Mill. This work, together with improvements to part of the path will be carried out once the weather improves.

A member of the public raised the issue of a previous request to support improved parking at the west end of Mill Road. The Council responded that when previously raised with the County Council it was considered low priority and there was also a lack of funding, however, it was agreed to raise the matter once again.

Flooding in Windmill Close was raised once again and a report from East Northants was received detailing the history of the problem and the steps being taken to mitigate the problem

Think Before You Park Scheme

Vehicles parked in Woodford that are either causing obstructions to pedestrians or other motorists, or those parked on double yellow lines are to be monitored by Woodford Parish Council and reported to Northamptonshire Police, in a joint scheme now being implemented in a number of villages. In particular the offences causing concern are highlighted in the Highway Code.

Any such vehicles will be photographed and details will be forwarded to the Police. The motorists attention will be drawn to the fact by a yellow/orange coloured card placed on the windscreen. The Council is limited evidence gathering only.

The Police will decide how the matter is to be followed up: e.g. a warning letter, perhaps a visit from Police for repeat offenders etc.

Streetlamps

Please report any faulty street lamps to lightsout@woodfordpc.co.uk. Woodford Parish Council owns all of the lamps in the village and repairs can only take place if we know about the fault and authorise the repair. Once the Parish Clerk is aware of the fault the contractor will normally repair the lamp in about a week. All you need to report is the lamp number (if known), or the location/address. Please don't assume someone else has reported the fault. We'd rather have two reports than none.

Faulty lamps awaiting repair as at 7 February are located in Highfield  near the playground and and top of Paddock Road.

Bus Service to Rushden Lakes

Diamond Coaches operate a service to Rushden Lakes each Wednesday, picking up in Woodford at 10.38am from the High Street / Village Green Bus Stop. The return journey leaves the shopping complex at 1.30pm. More details.
