2 Planning Applications submitted by Gallagher’s

Gallagher’s have completed the necessary due-diligence requirements including the bat and ground surveys. Two applications have been submitted to SMBC. These are PL/2016/01561/DIS which relates to the main and emergency access arrangements including details of the roads and footpaths into the site and PL/2016/01902/DIS which is for the discharge of the obligation to undertake a site Archaeological survey.

Lowbrook Farm SubGroup

The Parish Council decided that a Lowbrook Farm Development subgroup should be set up, with one Councillor leading, supported by willing Parishioners. The subgroup would consider development matters and issues and liaise with the developer to attempt to reach solutions. The Councillor member would then provide feedback to the Council on a monthly basis.  Cllr Chris Farr agreed to take the lead role

Cllr. Chris Farr with the help of two parishioners had met and delivered a leaflet drop, which resulted in more than 20 positive responses, from parishioners wishing to join the subgroup. An e-mail address has been set up for the group and they have met Glen Langham, the Planning Director of Gallagher’s to discuss proposals and concerns. In the initial meeting , Glen Langham, the Planning Director of Gallagher’ indicated that they were in the process of preparing the site for sale.

The SubGroup plans to have ongoing communications with Gallagher’s and if relevant the developer who purchases the land to develop the 200 homes.

2016 Scarecrow Competition

As Clerk of the Parish Council I was delighted to be asked to be one of the judges for the Tidbury Green 2016 scarecrow competitionalong with Pam Cole who lives in the village and Lorraine Hart from Age UK. The three of us had a great time judging and we were very impressed with the quality of the entries. People had put a lot of thought and effort into designing and making their scarecrows. We completed independent scoring as we were taken around by Pauline Fisher, to view and judge the scarecrows. When we finally returned to the school hall and sat down to discuss our scores we were unanimously agreed on our three winners.

 Congratulations to the winners:-

First Place – The Wright Family from Tilehouse Lane with a Royal party where there was plenty of beer and wine had. (Photograph above)

Second Place – The Hickey Family from Lowbrook Lane, where the queen was sat upon her “throne”. A great example of British humour.

 Third Place – Maureen Clerk of Norton Lane with the queen having Tea, in the company of the corgis

Thank you also to everyone who entered the day’s competitions. Without the support and participation of you all these great events would not take place.

The Social Committee would like to thank the group that meet at the school hall that was used to host the event, for entering into the spirit, by submitting cake and flower arranging entries and adding material in support of the day to their noticeboards. It was really appreciated.
