Councillor Changes

Following 4 years on the Parish Council, Mike Lawrence has resigned to pursue other interests – we would like to thank him for all his hard work as a Councillor looking after the Rights of Way, Village Assets and liaising with the Village Hall Management Committee. Particular thanks for his dedication to the Neighbourhood Development Plan – his depth of knowledge will be greatly missed!

We welcome Ian Kirkpatrick as a new Councillor and are happy to help him realise his ‘dream’ 🙂 Ian will be taking over as lead for the Rights of Way, Asset care and liaising with the Maintenance Officer.

Pug Brook Clearance 2020 – A BIG Thank You!

On behalf of the Parish Council and indeed village, we would like to thank all the parishioners involved in helping us to clear Pug Brook.

The aim, as many would know, was to carry out maintenance to clear the banks and any blockages so that we could mitigate any risk of flooding during heavy rain.

Having completed this work, the Parish Council has gone further and carried out a survey to check the water levels of Pug Brook at various points. The gradient of the brook is very gentle and so maintenance of the brook and its banks is the most practical way of avoiding flooding. The capacity of Pug Brook after the Station Road Culvert is more than sufficient to handle the volume of water it receives.

Our aim moving forward will be to ensure that the Brook and its banks continue to be maintained and monitored.

Again, thank you to everyone involved.

Linda Roslyn, Parish Clerk

CPRE – Changes to Planning System Petition

Will you add your name?

Campaigns Update

September 2020

The government is pushing ahead with changes to the planning system that pose a huge risk to the countryside and the communities living and working within it.

Ministers want to take decision-making powers away from communities and local councils, and hand them over to housing developers and Westminster officials.

Our democratic ability to shape the future of where we live could be lost with the stroke of a pen.

We must resist this, but we don’t have long. Will you sign our petition against these changes?

Yes, I’ll sign

Campaign to Protect Rural England, 5-11 Lavington Street, London, SE1 0NZ.
