DESIGN STATEMENT – Nothing to report.
The Chairman reported that she has taken photographs of the pot holes to send to
Hampshire Highways. The Chairman stated that it has been difficult to capture
the height of the gravel bank on the Grateley Road with a photograph. Mrs J
Venables suggested parking a small car on the bank as a reference, The Chairman
thought this a good idea and thanked Mrs J Venables for her suggestion.
Drain at the bottom of Park Lane was discussed and a blocked gully opposite
Truepenny Cottage was discussed and noted. These issues will be added to the
report being sent to Highways.
– It was thought that work has started on the Solar Farm, equipment has been
seen on the site. Cllr Mr R Whiting reported that he still has concerns about
the Solar Farm and that he has written to Kit Malthouse MP. Cllr Mr R Whiting
spoke at length about his concerns.
stated that all the concerns regarding the site and the operation had been
raised at the Planning meeting and the officers voted to give planning
permission. The Chairman did not feel that anything further could be done now
except monitor the site to make sure that permissions are adhered to.
AND 2016/2017 PRECEPT
The Parish Council agreed that the Clerks wages should be increased to £600 a year as he has not had a pay increase for 4 years. There has been no increase in the precept since 2009. The Precept will be increased to £2600 Proposed by the Chairman, seconded by the Vice Chairman. All agreed.
Crime in the local area continues to
be focussed around non-dwelling burglary, i.e. sheds, outbuildings, and theft of
motor vehicles, e.g. agricultural machinery. There were 2 significant
thefts in Quarley during the last quarter: despite the fact that the owner had
hidden it well a lawnmower was stolen from the churchyard whilst the owner was
taking a short break; and a cattle truck was stolen from Home Farm – this was
recovered by the police in another part of the county and returned to the owner.
Mrs Venables reminded the meeting about Hampshire
Alert and encouraged all those present to sign up to receive alerts. Not
only because of the timely nature of the information they contain but also
because, as NHW co-ordinator, she was assuming that folk were signed up and she
was not therefore sending out regular updates by email.
CLLR MRS J
FERGUSON – Reported that Footpath No1 from Bush Lane to the Drum is blocked in
places. Part of this Footpath is in the Parish of Amport and suggested that
Amport Parish Council are asked if they would join Quarley in a joint venture to
clear the footpath. The Footpath marker signs in the village will be looked to
note any that are missing so Rights of way can be contacted about replacements.
