DECLARATION OF INTEREST.
OF THE PREVIOUS MEETING

outstanding pot holes, the road to Grateley is a particularly bad state of
repair. additional potholes have now appeared and have been reported on the HCC
web site. It was hoped that a site meeting will be organized for early in the
LIGHTS - The Clerk reported that Julian Higgins from HCC Street Lighting is
investigating the issue of the missing street light in Quarley and why this has
not been flagged up by the HCC street lighting to be replaced. Julian Higgins
has assured the Clerk that this street light will be replaced and the Parish
Council will receive a refund for the electricity and maintenance costs for the
time the street light has been out of service.

further questions. The Chairman thanked Mr Dean for coming.

will remain at £2,250 for the following year.
CHEQUE ISSUED - November - Mr B Pearce
were no new planning applications to discuss.
VILLAGE DESIGN STATEMENT
Mr Richard Whiting suggested that the
parish Council wait for the outcome of the Borough Plan and review the village
design statement in the new year. Mr Whiting reported that he has noticed that
there are some inaccurate statements in the Conservation Plan and these will be
taken up with TVBC.
Empty Houses - a recent incident of a house
alarm going off has highlighted the problem of folk not being aware of who (if
anyone) is looking after a particular property when it is empty/unoccupied.
Hampshire Constabulary run a Registered Keyholder Scheme where, for £24/year,
details are held on who has access to homes and properties. More details can be
obtained from http://www.hampshire.police.uk/internet/advice-andinformation/crime-pre'ention/keyholder-registration-scheme
. I plan to deliver a letter round the village saying that I am very happy to
hold a list of who is looking after empty properties, which could include just
noting that the property is registered with the police scheme.
CLLR MR BEN FEW-BROWN
MR R WHITING - As an owner of a thatched
cottage raised concerns about fireworks, after a recent event in the village he
found a stick from a rocket lodged in his thatch. This was discussed and it was
felt that as there is a high number of thatched cottages in the village that it
would be prudent to produce a round robin letter to all residents regarding
asking them to please be careful when letting off fireworks. The Chairman will
draft a letter and circulate it around the Parish Councillors before
CLLR MR W MARSHALL - Reported that he had
noticed that the Nelson Lorry Drivers seem to be driving slower through the
village. He suggested that a letter be sent to Nelson asking if they would
contribute towards the new mirrors that were purchased earlier in the year.
