Belmont Pool Update

Recommended Posts

I received this email back today;
 

Cllr. Powell

In Rob Hemblade's absence I can probably at least bring you up to date as far as I am aware and following talks with Rob earlier last week.

Fly-tipping from Haywood Lane - much of the rubbish is historical and has been there since well before the Council purchased the site although further tipping does occur. Some of the items safe to remove and not in the water/mud and eligible for general disposal were cleared at the litter-pick day a earlier this summer. Our Ranger checks the site roughly every week and continues to remove items he safely can. It is likely that the larger/buried items will require winches and other equipment and may also require traffic control for the extraction to take place safely.

I know Rob is talking with Amey about co-ordinating a removal of the larger items and those in the mud and water that require specialist removal and disposal. I believe he is hoping that this will take place at the same time as Amey have equipment and people on site replacing the spillway from the pools. This is being scheduled for September/early October as this is the best time of year for pond works causing the smallest potential impact on wildlife and when the water level is low. I will copy this email to Rob so he can keep you updated on what is happening and when.

As regards bins I believe there is a direct contact at Amey for Councillors who have requests for work, additional fixtures etc. If you email details of your suggestions and locations I am sure Amey will look in to it. There are of course bins on the plan for the wider 'Persimmon Homes' country park but these will not be delivered until Persimmon establish the Country Park - probably about 18 months time based on current build schedule etc.

Hope this information helps.

Rob is due back next Monday if you have any further questions.

This is some good news, but I don't think they need special equipment to remove a few tyres? unless they are referring to something else lurking in the pool...

I took my dogs for a walk up to Belmont Pools today and couldn't believe how clean it was. No rubbish left around the lake,there has been no bonfires it is a pleasent place to walk around now.There are lots of ducks and the turtle was sat on the log with them.And hundreds of Dragonflys,the only problem are the tyres which are still there but I was told they are cleaning it out this weekend.
Many thanks to the fishermen and women who have been looking after it they are a great credit to our community.  :Happy_32:

It makes a nice change that you are complaining. It a pity you did not come to the pools meeting last Friday you would of heard the up to date news but I will be posting the minutes on BV when I receive them. Just one thing it is not this weekend that the tyres etc are being removed.

I was talking to one of the fishermen who is on the commitee and he said they are doing it not the council and they would be doing it this weekend.I did not know there was a meeting about the pools last Friday if I did I would have gone.You would have thought the meeting would have been advertised on here. And I only complain when there are things to complain about,I write a nice comment and I still get moaned at.No wonder a lot of the people which were on the other website don,t come on here who can blame them.  :Sad:

We were told on Friday night about the clearing of the pools at the meeting and the date given was 16th Oct not the 9th so someone has got it wrong or they have changed the date since Friday. The clear up is in conjunction with the council.
The reason why the meeting was not advertised here was simply because there were a lot of posters put on notice boards (including mine) also the fishermen club members delivered flyers door to door.
