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.

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.
