4. Complaints received since the last meeting
There have been 7 complaints received since the last meeting. TL informed the meeting of all that had go on. All appropriate parties were included as per the permit and beyond. SL confirmed they were more than happy with what had been received.

5. Noise
There were 2 complaints of squeaking conveyors no time was allotted to the noise so was very difficult to pinpoint. It was found that the conveyor in question was automated and every time staff went to look this has stopped. We have now dealt with the issue and are now carrying out extra walks around site for all external conveyors to be greased.

6. Odour Dust & Particulates
There was 2 odour complaint of smell. A walk was conducted on the same day of receiving complaint and no smell was identified. A further walk was taken out by TL and again no smell was identified.

7. Transport
3 complaints received one was for an external contractor who was smoking in his cab off site. The second was a driver on his mobile phone and another putting his seatbelt on while driving. We issued a memo for the last two and made it clear to take care when driving at all times but especially through the village.


8. Any other Business
Mrs. S Lintern asked if the field next to the playing field could be cut back and the ivy at the back of the warehouse down the side of the foot path be cut away. TL said that on Friday 3rd November this would be carried out via an external company CGM. This has now been completed along with self-field.


Date of next meeting: TBC,
