DECLARATION OF INTEREST.
OF THE PREVIOUS MEETING
VILLAGE DESIGN STATEMENT – No further news
HIGHWAYS - Highways have repaired several
more of the potholes in the parish but have still not cleared the gravel bank on
the last corned before Grateley, this job was agreed at least 7 years ago at a
site meeting with Highway Officers. Cllr Mrs Z Brooks suggested that a
photograph of the offending corner and gravel bank be forwarded to her and she
will make sure that it gets to Tim Lawton the Director of HCC Highways.
It was noted that there have been fewer
Nelson Lorries in the village of late and those that have been on the road have
been more courteous to pedestrians and horse riders.
BUS STOP SIGNS – The Bus Stop sign has now
WAR MEMORIAL – The Clerk was pleased to
report that the Parish Council have received a £500 grant from TVBC towards the
refurbishment of the War Memorial. This grant is a match funding grant from Cllr
Mr Ben Few-Brown’s Community Budget. The Clerk will now contact Mr Cullen for
an up-dated quote.
Cllr Mr Ben Few- Brown had asked Cllr Mr P
Lashbrook to stand in for him as he was away and unable to attend the planning
meeting. Cllr Mr P Lashbrook did not turn up, the vote was 5 for and 5 against,
if he had appeared to represent Ben, the vote would have been 6 against and 5 in
favour. The Chairman cast his vote in favour of the Planning Officers
recommendations to approve. Very disappointing!
The Chairman reported that David Dean from
the Solar Company has been in touch and has confirmed that Quarley and Amport
Parish Councils will each receive £10,000 when the new Solar Farm is connected
to the National Grid.
The Chairman asked for the Parish
Council’s authority to write to David Dean to confirm that the Parish Council
are willing to accept the £10,000 on off payment once the Solar Farm has been
connected to the National Grid. All were in agreement.
The Parish Council discussed the £10,000.
The initial thoughts were to bank the money and liaise with the parishionners as
to what it should be spent on, a project or projects that will benefit the
village would need to be identified. The Parish Council were mindful that this
is a one off payment and that it should be spent wisely. This will be discussed
further once the money has been received.
COUNCILLOR MRS Z BROOKS
CLLR MRS J FERGUSON – reported that she
has received several complaints about a new entrance and gates that have been
installed at the top of Park Lane. The hedge has been cut down to install the
gates. It was felt that as several complaints have been received the matter
should be reported to planning at TVBC as it was not sure if permissions needed
to be applied for.
