Tysoe Record December 2014

Highlights of well-attended November meeting:

Agreed to proceed with purchase of computer for village use.

Lottery application submitted for upgrade of playground equipment.

Mixed response so far on streetlights. We have a huge number – 53.

Trying to establish responsibility for ditch maintenance by The Orchard development.

Unhelpful response so far from Shipston about speeding.

Started work on a budget and precept application for 2015/16. Request for funding from Tysoe Village Hall Committee will be considered in this context.

Still considering additional litterbins but who will empty them?

 

Neighbourhood Plan

Summary of survey results was very helpful for Gladman enquiry.

Approval given to print and distribute the summary of the survey results.

Neighbourhood Plan Group now proceeding with writing plan.

Confirmation that the neighbourhood plan is crucial, whatever the outcome of the Gladman enquiry.

 

Planning update

Planning application in Lane End, Lower Tysoe was approved largely due to support of local people – parish council, district councillor and neighbours.

Pre-planning letter for Avon Avenue being considered by the parish council.

Letter concerning an amended application for Home Holdings caused concern but parish council will await formal application.

 

Public participation

Why not move small litterbin to play area.

Don’t forget request for bus shelter.

Consider selling the village hall to raise money to develop the fire station.
