Woodford Streetlamps

Please report any faulty street lamps to lightsout@woodfordpc.co.uk. Woodford Parish Council owns all of the lamps in the village and repairs can only take place if we know about the fault and authorise the repair. Once the Parish Clerk is aware of the fault the contractor will normally repair the lamp in about a week. All you need to report is the lamp number (if known), or the location/address. Please don't assume someone else has reported the fault. We'd rather have two reports than none.

Paddock Road / Windmill Close Play Area

A number of complaints have been received regarding the amount of personal belongings being left on the play area in Paddock Road and Windmill Close. If you have children who use the area please ask them to remove their belongings when they leave the area.The owner could be liable for any injuries sustained by other persons using the area. The Council or our contractors will not be liable for any damage to items left on the grass during maintenance

Noise Pollution

The Parish Council occasionally receives complaints regarding noisy neighbours, especially from music being played loudly through open windows etc. The COuncil has no power to intervene in such matters, however East Northamptonshire Council advise in the first instance you should contact the person creating the noise and ask them to reduce the volume. If they do not, the matter should be referred to East Northamptonshire Council. The East Northants Council website containes information regarding what is considered to be a nuisance and how you should report such events

Think Before You Park Scheme

Vehicles parked in Woodford that are either causing obstructions to pedestrians or other motorists, or those parked on double yellow lines are to be monitored by Woodford Parish Council and reported to Northamptonshire Police, in a joint scheme now being implemented in a number of villages. In particular the offences causing concern are highlighted in the Highway Code.

Any such vehicles will be photographed and details will be forwarded to the Police. The motorists attention will be drawn to the fact by a yellow/orange coloured card placed on the windscreen. The Council is limited evidence gathering only.

The Police will decide how the matter is to be followed up: e.g. a warning letter, perhaps a visit from Police for repeat offenders etc.
