March Meeting Report

The Parish Council meeting took place last Tuesday and the minutes will be published in due course. 

In the meantime here are the headline points:

  • We have been awarded over £4,000 from the National Grid Community Fund towards the cost of the Kettlwell Conservation Project (see an earlier blog). So we can now crack on with this project.
  • We are in the process of setting up a regular Youth Club in the Village Hall and we have already taken receipt of a new table tennis table, pool table and table football in preparation.
  • We have made representations to the Examination of the Joint Local Plan reinforcing our position that, for reasons of sustainability and lack of further need, no  case can be made for further housing development in the village.
  • We will investigate the costs and benefits of producing a Neighbourhood Plan for the parish and consult with the parish about the idea.

The next meeting on April 10th at 7.30 p.m. is, in fact, the Parish Assembly. This is the occasion on which the Parish Council reports back to the parish on its year’s activities. You will be able to see displays reporting on each aspect of the council’s activities, including the Advisory Groups who are taking the lead in delivering the Parish Plan. 

There will opportunities to ask questions and express your thoughts about parish matters. Your input is very important to keep us on the right track. We hope you will join us.
