* PARISH COUNCIL NOTICES *


Dunholme Parish Council

A remote meeting of Dunholme Parish Council took place on Tuesday 6th April 2021. 

Vacancies on the Parish Council

There are currently 2 vacant seats on Dunholme Parish Council.  If you are interested in joining us, please contact the Clerk for further information or see the notice on the Parish Council noticeboard.


Flooding in the village

The Parish Council are aware of several flooding issues within the village.  Please be assured that we are communicating with the necessary external bodies to try and alleviate these issues as soon as possible.

There have been several reports of mud on the road – particularly along Honeyholes Lane.  This has been passed onto the contractors in the village in the hope that a road sweep or something similar can be arranged.  Hopefully, with the weather improving slightly, this wont be an issue for much longer.

A 3 day operation took place on Ryland Road, whereby a number of large tree roots were dug up and general maintenance underground was completed.  This is hoped to have cleared the issue in this particular area.


Village Maintenance

At the meeting, a lot of village maintenance was discussed, and quotes accepted for various parts of the village.  This includes:

- the treatment of chafer bugs on Manor Park green and the Outdoor Bowling green.

- Replacement arm for the goalposts

- Cutting back of the brambles along the fence line on Kennington Close play area as they are damaging residents’ fences.

- Filling and seeding of the football goal mouth on Allwood Road playing field (this will be undertaken later in the year).

- Fixing the wooden safety fencing along the water reservoir in Oak Wood

Overgrown hedges and trees

It was decided at the meeting that contact will be made with residents who have overgrown hedges/trees on their boundary that go over onto public highways.  There is an increased number lately and some footpaths are getting difficult to navigate.  If you receive one of these letters, please do not take offence – it is a polite request and should be read as that.


Going forward with Covid-19 restrictions

Play areas can remain open for exercise only purposes – please ensure that social distancing and hand washing guidelines are followed.  We are washing down the high traffic areas on a regular basis to help keep you safe.


Litter picker – Our litter picker is still out working as she cannot work from home and is a lone worker, therefore she is able to continue.  When you see her out and about please feel free to give her a wave but do remember social distancing regulations.  She does a great job.
