|The below is a summary of the key decisions of our Parish Council at the above meeting(s).....|
- An application for the conversion and extension of a disused outbuilding at White House Farm, Dublin Road to a ‘Guest Annexe’ was considered. Councillors were of the opinion that the development would be an improvement to the existing building and recommended acceptance.
- The Parish Clerk is arranging with the District Council for new and replacement signs for Tudor Court, Church Lane and Redlingfield Road. There have been some delays as permission is needed form various residents in Tudor Court to erect the sign there as it is on private property.
- The ditch alongside the B1077 is being monitored; remedial work planned for later this year.
- The possibility of erecting a second or larger dog waste bin is being costed.
- The possibility of having a school crossing patrol officer is being assessed.
- Tyres in Bulls Hall Road ditch were promptly cleared by the District Council.
- SID survey of traffic in Occold on 8th March. Annual visits to follow.
- SALC Newsletter of the Year: it was decided that the ORACLE should be entered.
- Stan Warnes will be cleaning the War Memorial again this year.
- Investigations continue into the footpath to Thorndon that is obstructed by a lagoon.
- Application for the removal of a condition imposed upon an ex-battery chicken house at Occold Hall, when the original application was granted, that the exterior walls should be painted black to match the surrounding buildings. This had not proved possible as the sheets used were plastic coated. Councillors considered that the green building was an improvement and should be accepted.
- Revised application awaited: loft conversion/dormer extension at 4 Ash Tree Close
- Parish Elections in May 2007: The Parish Council will need to budget approx. £800
- A permanent commemoration of Victor Gormer’s work as Parish Transport Officer to be considered at the next meeting eg seat, new bus timetable etc
