Update on the Parish council meeting held on 27th February 2023
We welcomed the newly appointed Media Manager, Neil Durrant, who will be working a few hours a month to improve the media presence of the Council. The Parish Council is keen to engage more closely with residents by making better use of social media to keep in touch and listen to your concerns. He can be contacted at email@example.com.
Planning. After discussion, the council decided to send Wokingham Borough Council comments opposing the planning application for a new house in Waingels Road (see application no. 230113 https://planning.wokingham.gov.uk/FastWebPL/detail.asp?AltRef=230113&ApplicationNumber=230113+&AddressPrefix=&Postcode=&KeywordSearch=&Submit=Search). The plot adjoins the only site of ancient woodland in Charvil and we had concerns over the impact on wildlife and the natural environment.
Neighbourhood Plan. Councillor Rob Jones, who leads the Neighbourhood Planning group, reported that the first rough draft of the Plan had been put together, we are now looking for consultants to help prepare the final draft for discussion with residents.
Pavilion Redevelopment. We discussed the remedial works proposed for the Pavilion and agreed to do essential work especially in the changing rooms, we will review quotes for that work soon.
Dogs on East Park Farm. Following concerns raised by residents the council is writing to Wokingham Borough Council asking about whether they have plans to restrict the numbers of dogs one person can walk at one time.
If there are any issues you would like to raise with the council, please contact the Council via Miranda Parker,the Clerk (firstname.lastname@example.org).
