Brief Notes from the Parish Council meeting 19th June 2014


  1. A short public session with an update on Somerset’s plan to carry out a safety survey on the traffic calming. With the absence of Cllr Ham there is no further news regarding the scope or dates of such an investigation. It will be close to the twelve months settling in period this summer.
  2. The council have to ascertain weather Mendip still have a dog warden. There are concerns about dogs running free on the community field.
  3. The council will contact landowners who have indicated there may be offers for affordable housing.
  4. New standing orders are still to be discussed. For instance, the council will have to look at time limits on certain agenda items including the public session.
  5. There were no planning issues this month.
  6. The parish council will give the memorial hall a £1000 grant for work on the gents toilets.
  7. Cheques were authorised for play bark, daily Lychgate cleaning, clerk’s salary, clerk’s expenses, grass cutting, the burial clerk’s salary. The climbing frame invoice is to be queried as amounts to do not tally with the contract.
  8. Cllr Johnston has been to a national conference on playing fields. He will report on the advice gained at this meeting and the possible impact on our own field scheme. Paul Green is to help with this.
  9. We have help with a new website design. Thanks to Jenny Batson for this development.
  10. We have the offer of a generous grant to replace trees on the green in St Michael’s Close. Heather Holman will pay for two trees to be planted this autumn. Cllr Johnston will contact all the residents there and ask what kind of trees they would prefer.
  11. The lengthsman’s job is to be advertised. Contact for details of this “odd job” vacancy: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
