164.1 Councillor Walker reported that:
- There were ongoing parking issues in Outwoods Street arising from the small Care Home. Incidents had been captured on CCTV and there had been occasions when the Police had been called. The issues arise predominantly around school times when parents are dropping off/collecting children.
Councillors recalled that the Parish Council had objected to P/2020/01221 due to concerns regarding parking and that a letter had been sent outlining its concerns regarding the planning application to the ESBC Planning Committee meeting on 30 March 2021.
Agreed That ESBC be asked whether the ongoing parking issues are a sufficient reason for investigation in connection with the above planning application.
- The Police report on Shobnall Fields had been received which highlighted concerns about areas outside Shobnall Fields, i.e. canal towpath, etc. The recommendation was for CCTV camera to be installed at the bottom of Outwoods Street, canal towpath and the avenue of trees. Funding would need to be sourced for this project to go ahead.
- Fly tipping remained an ongoing issue in the Parish.
- The decision on the Town Fund Project D will be made by ESBC at its meeting on 28 February.
Agreed That ESBC be advised that Shobnall Parish Council strongly objects to Project D, specifically the proposal to move Burton Library to Burton Market Hall because there is not enough support for this to go ahead the proposal is not supported by parishioners.

- 171. Councillors’ questions
171.1 Councillor Dittmer asked if the 2022/23 Precept had been declared on ESBC. The Clerk confirmed that this had been done immediately following the January meeting.
171.2 Councillor Hoare reported that she had spoken with members of the Marston Bowls Club. They had confirmed that they had been given a new 10 year lease and they were looking for funding for flood lighting and a new Club house. They had said that they wanted to reactivate the grant application they had previously submitted. The Clerk explained that an approach had been made via the Contact Form on the council’s website, following which a Grant Aid application form had been emailed to the enquirer. No application had been received from the Club. Councillor Hoare said that she would follow this up with Club members.
171.3 Councillor Hamid said that the ongoing fly tipping issues in the Parish were exasperated by the charges levied by ESBC to collect heavy items from residential properties and the charges levied by SCC at the Recycling Centre.
Agreed That ESBC and SCC be asked to reconsider the charges currently levied as these prevented people from either having the items collected or taking them to the Recycling Centre, resulting in fly tipping which in turn costs the taxpayer as ESBC has to remove those items. The charges are therefore not cost effective in real terms.
171.4 Councillor Shilton referred to a caravan that had been parked in St Pauls Street for at least six months. Councillor Walker agreed to look into this matter.
171.5 Councillor Donlon reported on her recent attendance at the virtual ESBC Parish Council Forum on Climate Emergency. Officers had explained the measures being pursued by ESBC, these included s106 funds for cycle routes, two electric charging points being installed in Coopers Square. A report will be provided by ESBC which will be forwarded to all Councillors.
