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.

Tysoe Record May 2014

April meeting held in village hall after the annual parish assembly:

Funding application for a bus shelter has been unsuccessful.

Meeting with WCC to discuss curbstones and flagstones to be arranged before May meeting.

Compton Estate agreed to install headwall and trash screen on Jeffs Close culvert.

Fencing at Policeman’s Tree requires repair by WCC.

Dog mess should be picked up and put in the bins provided.

Wall beside church requires attention by the owner.

A number of potholes require attention by WCC.

Member of the public felt new housing was not being spread fairly throughout the village and Lower Tysoe seemed to avoid significant development.

Neighbourhood Plan launch on 29th March

Parish council praised the highly successful launch, organised by the Neighbourhood Plan Group who arranged display stands and attendance by MP Nadhim Zahawi, WCC Leader Cllr Izzi Seccombe, District Councillors Chris Saint and Gill Roache, Cllr Mark Sewell, other parish councillors and hundreds of residents.

The Neighbourhood Plan Group is responsible for developing the long-term plan, not dealing with specific planning applications.

Planning update

The two big proposed developments – Gladman on the Oxhill Road and Pendleton adjacent to Church Farm Court – had been rejected by Stratford District Council but are going to appeal.

Keith Risk offered to coordinate Tysoe’s response to these appeals.

The process is under way for the development of a neighbourhood plan.

The campaign for fast broadband

Broadband speeds in much of Tysoe are painfully slow. To help bring fast broadband it is vital that all Tysoe residents and businesses who use the internet complete the survey and demonstrate the high level of demand.

Details of the survey are in the letter from Tysoe’s broadband champions, Alison Cross and Craig Marshall.
