Quarley Parish Council Minutes - September 2007
Minutes of the Quarley Parish Council Meeting held on Tuesday 18th September 2007 in the Village Hall at 7.30pm.
WELCOME. Cllr Mrs Ferguson welcomed everyone to the meeting.
MINUTES OF THE PREVIOUS MEETING - Cllr Mrs Ferguson signed the minutes of the previous meeting as a true record. Matters arising from those minutes :-
LAINS SHOOTING SCHOOL - Cllr Mrs Tubbs and Cllr Mr Venables reported that they attended an open day at Lains Shooting School and were impressed with the facilities. The Young Guns Academy has been a great success and will continue. The children who attend the Academy from the village have benefited a great deal from the experience. The parish Council thought this excellent news.
SLIP ROAD - As far as the Parish Council were aware no work has yet been undertaken to alleviate the problem of flooding under the A303 Bridge. It was also reported that stones from the cages holding up the A303 bank are being taken. The Clerk was asked to contact Highways to report this and to get a progress report on the proposed works on the slip road and bridge.
FOOTPATH CUTTING - The Clerk reported that due to recent Foot and Mouth outbreak Chris Wilkins has not cut the footpaths as Mr Cross has livestock in the fields. When the all clear is given, he will cut footpath 1 and quote to cut footpath 2.
PARISH PLAN - The Parish Council have not yet discussed a Parish Plan - On Going.
AFFORDABLE HOUSING - Cllr Mrs Ferguson reported that Mr John Lancaster, the Rural Housing Enabler Community Action Hampshire, had said some time ago that he would come and talk to the Parish Council about Affordable Housing in the village. The Clerk was asked to contact Mr Lancaster to see if he was still willing to come and talk to the Parish Council.
PAVEMENTS IN ETWALL - Cllr Mrs Tubs reported that pavements in Etwall are still in a bad state. The Clerk was asked to contact Testway Housing again on this matter.
RUBBISH BIN - The Clerk will organise for a rubbish bin to be placed by the Bus Shelter.
DOG FOULING - Again some dog owners in the village are allowing their dogs to foul the streets and the Village Green.
TREE MATTERS - The Parish Council briefly discussed where trees could be planted in the village and organising a working party to cut down the ivy on many of the trees in the village.
