Parish Council

March/April 2016

The following matters were discussed at the January meeting.

  • The Chairman thanked Mrs Short for keeping the Parish Council informaed by sending her report of a meeting with the RAF, where the intense shooting on the firing range was discussed.  The Chairman further stated that the position of the Parish Council has not been discussed, but that it is clearly understood that the RAF must maintain the shooting schedule and noise reduction already is implemented. It is anticipated that the unusually loud and persistent firing was a 'one off'.
  • The first village defibrillator and case has been ordered.  The Chairman expressed his thanks to the village Fete Committee for the donation to cover the cost.
  • Cllr Adams thanked Cllr Mrs Barber for all her hard work on speed reduction, which he would be following up with the officers confirmed. It was bought to question if the village should have a 'clean up' day for the Queen's Jubilee. Cllr Adams has volunteered to help, using a machine that would clear the side of the road and pavements. Members of the council have thanked him for his offer.
  • Work has been ongoing with AVDC regarding the consultation for the first stage of the Neighbourhood Plan.
  • More work has been ongoing on street lighting surveys, replacement lamps and traffic management.
