Please see below an email which I’ve received from the Area Rights of Way Officer asking about the priorities for cutting rights of way in Yaxley. If you would like to let me know which rights of way would be your priority for cutting that would enable me to respond.

Subject: Cutting Amendments
I am currently in the process of reviewing the cutting schedule in my patch ready for cutting next year to see if there are any changes needed.
You will understand that with over 10,000 rights of way in Suffolk covering over 5,500km we do not have the re resources to cut everything. Therefore, changes to the cutting schedule will mean swaps, if there is a route you feel should be prioritised then another would have to stop being cut in its place, the routes cut by landowners are likely to stay the same.
No changes can be made for the second cut of this year but if there are any amendments that you feel would be appropriate for the future please let me know by the end of October at the latest. I am happy to come and meet with you if you would like to discuss amendments, please put forward some dates if you would like me to come out and see you.
With kind regards

Dear Yaxley Resident,
In November 2017 Yaxley Parish Council undertook a consultation of behalf of the Highways Department of Suffolk County Council. A request has been made by Suffolk Highways that it is repeated now that there are formal plans for the proposed 47m of parking restrictions shown in the attached plan.
Yaxley Parish Council has tried to resolve the problem of parking at the T-junction of the Street and Eye Road for several years. This has involved working with the police and the Highways Department of Suffolk County Council. Parking within 10 metres of a junction is contrary to the Highway Code and is deemed to be illegal by the Highways Department.
Since parking is not legal at this location the Highways Department is supportive of adding lines to indicate a no parking zone by formalising an area to either side of the junction. (See the map on the Letter in Notices.)
Your comments on this proposal (positive or negative) are sought as part of the legal process of making these changes. If you would like to comment please do so by 31st July 2018 by emailing the Clerk to the Parish Council – firstname.lastname@example.org
Clerk to Yaxley Parish Council.
There are some allotments available for rent from Yaxley Parish Council. Here is a great opportunity for you to grow your own food, and while doing so take exercise, for less than £1 per week (£30 per year). This is much cheaper than the cost of gym membership and you will also have fresh produce for the dinner table as a result. If you are interested, please contact the Clerk to the Parish Council - email@example.com .
Yaxley Emergency Plan:
The Emergency Plan for Yaxley will be active very soon. If you would like more information on it please contact the Clerk to the Parish Council -firstname.lastname@example.org .

Most people in the village will know that the parish council administers land in the north of the parish, some of which is given over to an area of 30 allotment plots that can be accessed by car from the end of Old Norwich Road.
Currently there are a several vacant plots that are available for rent. Plot holders sign up to an annual rental agreement and pay £30 per year, which goes towards maintenance of the site, provision of water, insurance and general administration costs.
If anyone is interested in taking a plot for the current year, which runs from 1st October to 30th September, please contact the parish clerk. If demand exceeds supply, preference will be given to Yaxley residents and then to parishes with which Yaxley shares a boundary before granting tenancies to those from further afield.
Please note that the minutes files provided in PDF format in the panel to the left are in draft form and are not necessarily as agreed by the council. They are subject to possible amendment and correction at the subsequent parish council meeting. To establish the accuracy of any minute item, therefore, it is necessary to check the minutes of the meeting after the one in question to see if any changes were approved.
