PARISH HEADLINES – 9

The following is my recollection of the key points brought up at the parish council meeting last week:

  • The parish council has sent an official response to imperial college regarding the Wye3 Masterplan: 130727NP ICL Masterplan Response. This suggests that a reasonable number of units for Wye3 would be between 50 and 70. (And not 300 has Imperial has specified.)130727MUGA
  • The parish council discussed plans for a multi-use games area on the Village Hall Playing Field in the hope that funding from Sport England would be forthcoming in the coming weeks (to supplement funding from other sources which is already in place). The parish council will be taking over running the project from the Village Hall charity. 130727MUGAsiteplan 130727MUGAexistingplan 130727MUGAdetail 130727MUGAsideon
  • Discussion continues with Ashford Borough Council (ABC) regarding further yellow-lining in the village. Double yellow lines on Harville Road and Bramble Lane are likely to be introduced. Further double yellows in the heart of the village will require further discussion.
  • ABC is currently drawing up the legal agreement for the divestment of the village green to the parish. The green will be dedicated ‘open space’ under the Queen Elizabeth II fields challenge.
  • The parish council has undergone an internal audit carried out by a professional auditor – David Buckett CPFA DMS. The intention is to act on the report’s recommendations in the coming months.
  • Discussion of individual portfolios on the PC (and possible reallocation) will take place at September’s meeting.
  • There has been another spate of thefts on the allotments.
  • The Children’s Playing Field Charity have bought a football goal for the Village Hall playing field. (Not sure I mentioned this in the meeting. But it is happening.)
  • A RoSPA inspection of children’s play equipment will take place in the next few weeks.
  • The co-op will be shut between 8 and 15 August. (I’ve heard that part of this refurbishment will involve the installation of self-service tills. Not sure I agree with that in a village shop situation.)
