Agenda & Minutes

The S&A Drakeley Farm planning application has had 2 more documents added to the application and the comments deadline has been extended.

The Ward Cllr. has provided an update from the Case Officer Rebecca Jenman:

“I can confirm that the agent has asked that he can respond to concerns from the Highways and Drainage Officer , as well as representations from locals. We are expecting further information to be submitted in the next few weeks at which stage we will carry out a further round of consultations. I have request an extension of time until the beginning of December. I will let you know as soon as we have received the information. At this stage they have advised that they won’t be amending plans.”

The Draft Minutes for the Meeting of the 15th November are now available below.

Parish Council meetings are now in-person in the Community Lounge. However, the PC has a legal duty of care and continuing care must be taken. Thank you.

During each monthly Parish Council Meeting time is given over to a ‘Local Residents Session’. It is not part of the meeting and the Parish Meeting is adjourned for the session. As per the ‘Standing Orders’, cf, ‘up to 10 minutes will be allocated for the public to make representations, ask questions, and give evidence in respect of any item on the agenda. To make these sessions productive we ask that any representations, or evidence be sent to the Parish Clerk before the meeting. The information can then be circulated to the Parish Councillors to consider.
