The saga for replacement of parish councillors continues.

In summary, four people were elected as councillors unopposed in May’s election. The Parish Council co-opted three more to bring the Council up to strength. Some people expressed concern about the co-options. Three councillors resigned in June. This meant that, if ten electors wanted it, the three new vacancies would be filled by having an election. The closing date for calling an election is 28th June.

So, there will either be an election or the three vacancies will be filled by co-option. There is no parish council meeting in August so, if co-option happens, it is scheduled to take place at September’s meeting. If you are interested then this is another chance for you to become a councillor. Please let me know in writing at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by 29th August if you want to be considered for co-option.

The Parish Council would like to thank the three resigning councillors, David Keene, Paddy McGuinness and Richard Palmer, for all the hard work they have given over the years.

Natta have sold the tithe Barn at Dove House. The new owner intends to redesign the plans for the building, based on the design of the first planning application, which was for only one dwelling. They hope to start building work before the end of the year. The green fencing is going to remain in place around the site for the foreseeable future, for reasons of safety and security.

A tree has been planted near the bus stop at the end of Parkside. This is part of an initiative by the County Council, who have planted a tree in every village in the county.

A while ago I asked for wheelie bins and kitchen waste bins to be removed after the refuse collectors have been. Can I appeal again for this to be done. Some of the residents of Field Lane seem to be particularly bad at taking their bins away.

I have also asked on several occasions for dog owners to clear up after their pets but there are still some areas where dog mess is left. Please take it away.

The planning application for a garden room at The Forge (P23/S0679/HH) has been granted.
