Minutes of the meeting at The Trinity on 5th March 2020.
Apologies received and accepted from F Ellis, A Thomas and H Walker.
The minutes were confirmed as an accurate statement of the meeting on the 14th January.
• Agreed unanimously.
4. Matters of interest…
The Clerk presented the best estimate of the final position for the end of the financial year 2019/20. The submission was accepted.
Another positive litter pick will go ahead after a ‘good’ response from villagers.
An update will be presented at the next full meeting.
Very positive response from the ‘sponsor a post’ initiative. The next stage is to put in motion a plan agreed with Highways. This will see Highways securing the uprights and passing the direction arms to the ‘village’ to be refurbished or re-created. The major concern will be the amassing the letters/numbers needed.
No direct initiative from the parish council
Jill Guy will make appropriate contacts to ensure a smooth transition at the end of the summer.
The meeting agreed to support the initiative of the Commons Trustees to reduce/remove the telephone/electricity posts and cables that make the common unsightly.
The Clerk will contact relevant authorities re: funding sources.
iv) South Norfolk then decided to have these sites as well as asking for more sites of up to a hectare to be called in where as few as 12 houses but up to 25 could be built. The reason for a minimum of 12 is so that within the development there could be some affordable housing. It is anticipated that these developments would have a mix of housing and not a development of high cost houses!
The sharing of the Common Trustees Minutes/Accounts was valued and appreciated.
Dates of next meetings
• Full Meeting … May 7th……..and Annual Parish Meeting [Annual Report from Chairman].
J K Gough, The Clerk
