|Hope you had a good Christmas!
Some clarification for you. The contractor who recycles plastic which is
placed in the container in St Martin`s Road can only recycle plastic
bottles. These have numbers 1,2 or 3 stamped on the base. The plastic
beakers used for fresh soup or pasta sauce, cannot be recycled so go in with
your household waste.
During 2007, in addition to attending numerous meetings, responding to a
never ending flow of consultations, pouring over a plethora of planning
applications and reading countless government and local government
documents, we can also offer you some tangible evidence of our year's work.
Now read on......
Users of the Village Hall will now feel much warmer since the installation
of new double glazing throughout the hall and the new cooker has been well
received. Users of the Watton Road Recreation Ground will have seen all the
new play equipment, the youth shelter, the new path to the under 5's play
area and two new sets of goal posts. On the KGV playing field in Old
Knebworth we have installed more new play equipment and will soon be
planting a rural hedge along its northern boundary. Christmas lights were
once again switched on in Knebworth and I hope you all saw Santa climbing up
The Knebworth Parking Initiative is still trying to come
up with some parking solutions. There is a positive outlook on the horizon
for our youth club. While not being Parish Council led, we do have positive
input in both of these areas.
Consultations are now being carried out on “The Stevenage
and North Herts Action Plan”. Type that name into Google and all the
information will pop up. Or you can see it in the Library.
I have just heard that the A1M (Southbound) will be closed overnight from
Monday 7th to Monday 21st January 2008 – Monday to Saturday. Diversions will
be via the B197 and parking restrictions of some sort will be in force in
London Road (The High Street). BE WARNED !!!!!!
The Village Hall was packed for the Public Meeting on December 5th. Over 180
residents attended. There was a very good presentation followed by some
lively discussion. I will publish the results from the Response Forms in
next month's report. Thanks to all who attended. That sort of turnout is
most encouraging for the Parish Council.
