7.  ESTATE DEVELOPMENT – SGT HAMMOND
PCSO Lingard gave a general overview to “Information relating to aspects of new developments,
which from your perspective make them safer and more community friendly areas in which to live and raise families”. The past 6 years have seen much major development  increasing the population from 9,000 to 15,000 and as policing numbers have not changed engagement with the communities has been carried out in different ways such as attending local events and through social media. Facilities such as the BMX track and skatepark provide recreation and  no alcohol open space areas provide family friendly areas for congregation. With further development planned it is important that facilities are increased in proportion to population. Most developers now design with crime prevention measures in mind such as visible gates and lockable windows and with a minimum of rat runs and snickets. There are on-going problems with lack of parking spaces on new development leading to issues and friction. Dan Rawson asked if police presence would be increased in the future and was advised that they are presently bidding for another PCSO to bring back up to full staffing level, due to a natural wastage reduction in capacity. With the large increase in population there has only been a very small increase in crime.
Louisa Macintosh advised that the Community Safety Partnership figures to the end of February 2014 show North Kesteven as statistically the second safest place in the country. Louisa will circulate details of these figures to the Committee. PCSO Lingard was thanked for her attendance and she left the meeting at 7.25pm.
4.  CHAIRMAN’S ANNOUNCEMENTS
a)  M Kohn, CEO of  Sticky World,  will be visiting Hykeham on Friday to update the site. He
will be met at the station at 10.15 and break for lunch at the offices at 12.30 if any member of the Committee wishes to speak to him or alternatively any points for Mr Kohn can be submitted to the office before Friday.
b)  Councillor Dixon and the Town Clerk had met with representatives from Globe to discuss the site allocation work. Globe will now review the work to date and provide feedback.  It is very important to  understand what  growth  figures  the Local Plan and NKDC are working to in respect of our area and therefore a meeting will be arranged for the Chairman, Clerk and a Globe representative with A  McDonough  and L Macintosh from NKDC.    The Chairman will  also  be attending a meeting  with Toby Forbes-Turner(Lincoln City Council Chief Planning Officer) on Thursday 8th May and he would be happy to raise any questions submitted to the office prior to this date.
c)  Confirmed dates of the meetings of the Committee will follow shortly.
d)  In the absence of Sonya Key it was agreed that her demonstration of prospective web sites be deferred until the next meeting.
e)  The leaflets have been taken to the delivery agents and will be hand delivered by the end of this week. The A3 and A4  posters require posting on noticeboards and in prominent  positions. South Hykeham representatives to help with this. Councillor Little entered the meeting at 7.35pm.
5.  SOCIAL MEDIA UPDATE
Dan Rawson advised that he continues to monitor Sticky World and the comments posted. The Twitter site has 12 followers and we in turn follow 8 – Twitter tag @hykehamnp.
6.    PUBLICITY AND CONSULTATION SCHEDULE
Members referred back to the timetable set by Globe and would now actively pursue the hiring of an empty shop unit utilising funds from the grant received. Louisa Macintosh would re-contact the Co-op regarding the empty unit on the Hykeham Green Retail Centre and  vacancies would be investigated at the Forum. Managing the content of the questionnaire is very important with a good mixture of question required to bring in the relevant information and comments. It was felt important that expectations should not be raised unrealistically high and that the organising of a prize draw would help participation. Ideas for content to be submitted to the Chairman for approval and Louisa Macintosh to organise the printing.
Proposed by Councillor Little, seconded by Councillor Sampson
AGREED  That once the format is approved by the Chairman, the questionnaire be drawn up and distributed by the same method as the leaflet to a maximum cost of £750. Clerk to check with distributors if a discount can be applied.

8.  SITE ALLOCATIONS

Hykeham Planning

Our New Logo Branding

Following on from the early meetings of the committee it was identified that the proposed plan needed a brand that all residents could identify with and could be clearly used as a marketing tool in promoting the neighbourhood plan, branding when used affectively promotes conversation and discussions within people whether it is a love it or hate it, the desired effect is that the brand should be visually impacting, innovative and creative which when combined passion and inspiration from people adds quality and strengths to the creation of the neighbourhood plan.
Hykeham Planning
Our branding logo has taken on the form of colourful visual lines creating the skyline of well know land marks within Hykeham and combined with the addition of the catchphrase inspired by the children of Ling Moor Primary School.
We hope that the conceived logo will establish itself well within our communities and establish our commitment that this is a community based project by the people for the people.
