Correspondence & Clerks Update
Village Pond: Clerk confirmed that enquiries had not found an owner for the village pond, BBOWT guidance on management had suggested that the duck weed should be cleared by hand 3 – 4 times a year, from this wildlife and plants would start to improve. No benefit seen in installing a pump, best to
kept as a natural pond. There was an option to put a formula in to reduce the weed but management by hand agreed as the best choice initially. Following legal advice from BALC, Clerk explained that process of claiming the land by the PC could be lengthy and expensive, suggested that a group of volunteers
would be best placed to go ahead with the management suggested. D Brady to speak to neighbours.
