Parish Council Meeting

Monday 24th November

Some matters arising from this meeting :

Public Time. The Millennium Field was discussed with regards to money spent on it, how much it was used and its poor condition, possibly with some broken glass. It was agreed that the Parish Council should arrange a site meeting to inspect the field.

Chuf were thanked and commended for the wreath they had provided for the Remembrance Sunday service.

Unclaimed land by the phone box was discussed. There has been a change in legislation recently which has slowed progress as to establishing the ownership of this land. It was agreed that the Parish Council would apply for a search for ownership.

There had been no planning applications . A complaint raised with AVDC by a resident concerning building works in Needlemakers had been rejected by AVDC , on the grounds that the works were not substantial enough to require permission.

The question of speed traps in the village was brought up with the local Community Police Officer but as resources are limited, it is unlikely that this request will be granted.

The next meeting will be on December 8th – the Annual Budget meeting.

The next full meeting will be on Monday January, 12th.
