Tysoe Record October 2014

No August meeting so September was a spectacular with a huge public attendance:

Rent review finally agreed and signed by all parties.

Agreed to patch up existing notice board and then replace next year.

Endeavouring to establish title to collapsing wall near church; in meantime the public reminded to avoid risks by not using the path.

Funding for defibrillators progressing well.

Further quotes required for repairing playing field fence.

Village website now online; content from Tysoe groups and clubs very welcome.

Annual safety inspection of playground to go ahead.

Agreed to contribute £1,000 towards churchyard maintenance.

 

Neighbourhood Plan

Response rate to the survey was a very encouraging 43%. Cost agreed for independent analysis of results.

We wish to clarify potentially misleading information in an article on page 18 of the September Tysoe Record. There is no group titled Tysoe Residents Neighbourhood Planning Group. There is the Neighbourhood Plan Group, a subsidiary of the parish council with responsibility for developing the neighbourhood plan but not involved in planning applications. In addition some residents formed a Rule 6 Group to contest the Gladman appeal.

 

Planning update

At an extra meeting the parish council opposed by a majority a new application for 9 dwellings on land adjoining Church Farm Court.

Agreed to support the application at The Anchorage in Old Tree Lane.

After discussion and public participation, agreed to object to an application for 5 dwellings at Home holdings in Lower Tysoe.

Agreed important that, to avoid repetition, the parish council and Rule 6 Group compare notes over what each planned to say at the Gladman enquiry.
