News Report April 2016

Police Report

A report for March was not available from the police. The way in which crimes are allowed to be reported and the type of information to be included is changing. As soon as the changes have been confirmed the police will be sending in reports once again. Suspicious activity is still being reported in the village and the police will log any calls on 101 and investigate. The police beat surgery in March was again very well attended and our local police beat team were happy to discuss the recent crime in the village and offer advice on crime prevention. Dates for upcoming police beat meetings will be posted around the village and on the Parish Council website. We hope that many of you will have attended the April Neighbourhood Watch meeting and supported Angie and Gary Boorman, the co-ordinators of the new scheme.

Burton Lane Housing Development

Following the report that the appeal against the decision to refuse outline planning permission for the housing development on Burton Lane has been withdrawn, the planning consultants acting on behalf of Avant Homes attended the April Parish Council meeting and presented their potential plans for a new development of 28 houses to include bungalows, starter homes and affordable housing. They are planning to hold an open evening at the Memorial Hall to present the plans to the village and will be leafleting everyone with the details.

The developer for the East Road site has also withdrawn their appeal.

Pavement/Grass Verge Parking

As the new mowing season is well underway please could we ask that you do not park on the grass verges as the mowers cannot mow the grass if your vehicle obstructs them. We have also had complaints regarding parking on pavements preventing wheelchair users and push chairs passing. Please be considerate when you are parking.
