PARISH COUNCIL VACANCY – The Chairman
reported that she has received an email from Nicholas Constable who has
expressed an interest in becoming a Parish Councillor. The Chairman suggested
that the Parish Councillors invite Mr Constable to an informal meeting to
discuss the position. Cllr Mr Whiting felt that it should be held in the Village
Hall, this was noted.

had not yet managed to get the photograph of her small car on the gravel bank on
the Grateley Road, but will make the effort to get this done.
There has been an increase in the Nelson
lorries travelling through Quarley on the way to Fox Farm. This issue was
discussed at length and will be monitored.
SOLAR FARM – Work on the Solar Farm is
Cllr Mr R Whiting spoke about the revised
Borough Local Plan. There have been several objections from various groups. The
plan has provision for 640 houses in the rural areas over the next 18 years.
Major Development has been designated for the Picket Peace and Picket Twenty
areas. Quarley is safe from development and there are no planed changes to the
village within the plan.
Cllr Mr R Whiting therefore felt that the
Village Plan/Design Statement was not necessary for Quarley. The Parish Council
discussed various options on how the information gathered could be used within
the parish, possibly producing a booklet that could be part of a welcome pack
for new residents.
J Venables reported that Hampshire and Isle of White Police have has a
successful Drink and Drive campaign over the festive season. 215 arrests were
made. 700 more than the previous year.
The Parish Council discussed this and
thought that it would be nice to hold a village party on the 12th
June 2016 with a “bring a picnic” theme.
OF THE PUBLIC
Mrs J Venables asked “As there is no
mention of development in Quarley in the revised Borough Plan, what would be the
Parish Council’s attitude be to intended possible development at Home Farm:
this could be a possibility in the Future”.
The Parish Council had no intention of
addressing this issue. They could not make comment on an unknown quantity. Any
proposals for developing Home Farm in the future would be addressed by the
Parish Council who are in office at that time.
