PARISH COUNCIL CHAIRMAN'S REPORT
Around 100 residents turned up at the public meeting held to let CDC present their local plan to Tangmere. There were many questions asked, and the general view was that the housing numbers in the plan were unnecessarily high, and concern was expressed about the provision of infrastructure to support such housing numbers. Many residents left the meeting ready to formally state their objections during the consultation period.
Despite the initial difficulty of navigating the consultation document, and the difficulty in submitting their comments, many district residents have already left their views on the consultation portal. I have reviewed many of these, and the overwhelming majority are seeking a downward review of the numbers and a request for infrastructure to precede the housing provision. It remains to be seen if the planning authority actually listens to the comments, and amends their plans. Residents have until Friday 3rd May to formally lodge their comments with CDC.
A local resident has generously rebuilt the parish notice board by the phone box on Tangmere Road. The previous notice board was in a very poor state and in real danger of falling apart. Many thanks to Ray Turner for doing this excellent work.
The children’s swings have now been installed on the recreation field, made possible because the Blenheim Park play area was unable to be built as planned. Whilst it is disappointment that the play equipment could not be sited in the Blenheim Park site as it should have been, at least the village has the play area it needs. The parish council will continue to ensure that all funds due to the community are properly collected and used approriately.
The next full Parish Council meeting will be held at 7.30pm on Thursday, 11 July at the village centre. All residents are invited to come and give their views.
