Brief notes on the parish council meeting 31st July 2014

Yellow gate field development: It is thought likely that outline planning permission will be sought for 36 houses.  Some will be bungalows and some two storey homes.  There will be shared/affordable, housing association properties on site.   Access and traffic difficulties were acknowledged.

The parish council will adopt new and revised standing orders: This means that the recommended time for public sessions will be 30 minutes.  Meetings will only last two hours.  n.b. Such sessions can be extended if circumstances demand extra time.


Cheques were authorised for:  EDF electricity, the climbing frame, the memorial hall and the upkeep of gardens and grass.

Correspondence and village reports:

There were items dealing with the development of Yellow Gate field. 

Grass to be cut in Millennium wood. We are assured by Somerset Farms it will be cut, week beginning 4th Aug.                                                         The residents of St Michael’s Close would like a Japanese maple to re-place the cherry tree felled last year. Tree surgeons are looking at other trees on the green in the Close.

Somerset Farms are likely to offer Millennium Wood to the parish.  This change of ownership does have implications as we would have to cover the cost of upkeep of trees, hedges and grassland.

Information is being sought on the severity of the fire damage to the new climbing frame.

The Knotweed that has grown up on the streamside path will be controlled by the Highways agency which has started work on eradicating it.  This plant will take several years to control!

The Quarries Earth Science Centre is holding a meeting on 6th August at 7pm.  Villagers can help with labelling photos and identifying characters in old photographs of the quarrymen.
