View from the Chair

From the Council Meeting of 11th April

Pavilion Redevelopment – We noted that the first meeting with the architects, Stanhope Wilkinson Associates, will be held later this month, this will be the kick-off meeting to start discussions on the redevelopment of the Pavilion at East Park Farm.  If you are interested in getting involved please let me know ( clerk@charvil.com or put a note through the village hall letter box).

Neighbourhood Plan – the next meeting of the  Steering Group will appoint leaders to the five working groups, one for each of the themes of Housing, Transport, Environment, Flooding and Community. These groups will draw together the evidence and produce the plans and policies that make up the final neighbourhood plan. If you are interested in helping with any of these themes please let me know or contact the clerk (clerk@charvil.com).

Jubilee – Cllr Matt Walker outlined his plans for the virtual family treasure hunt for the Jubilee Bank Holiday – more details to follow.

Planning Applications – we are really disappointed there are more retrospective planning applications coming before the Council.  Getting the right approvals beforehand can help you get things right first time without the worry that you might have to demolish what you have built!

Rainwater harvesting – we agreed to put in a rain water system to catch rainfall from the village Hall, this will help with providing water for the Community Orchard and nearby newly-planted trees.

Dog washing facilities – we considered an offer from a company to put in a dog washing facility in East Park Farm, this stimulated a lively debate! I often hear from residents, especially those with small children or more elderly, of their concern about dogs off their leads on East Park Farm. In the end we decided that although dog walkers would welcome it this was not the ideal siting.  We agreed to try to suggest other areas further from sports grounds and play areas.

Changes to Councillors – we were very pleased to welcome David Oppong to the council, and can I remind residents that we do still have a vacancy on the council if you can support some of the important initiatives we are pushing forward.

Litter pick – about a fifteen residents turned out on Sunday 3rd April including the Bennett family with their young son, Jason, who had made his own litter picker from recycled materials as a lockdown project!

 Annual Parish Meeting – the APM will be on the 18th May at 8pm in the village Hall where we will be giving you updates on Parish projects and you will have to opportunity to ask questions – drinks and nibbles available! See you there?
