the Parish meeting of 14th November, 37 residents attended, seeking
clarification to the access for the allotments, community garden and horse
fields, now that WSCC have installed the height control barrier at the Museum entrance.
There were many positive suggestions raised to facilitate convenient access for
those with legal rights of unfettered access to their land, and the parish council
determined to write to WSCC requesting a more workable option for their licences.
firmly believe that a workable option exists that satisfies both WSCC concerns
about illegal access, and the parish councils rights for their tenants.
the same meeting approval was given to progress the Neighbourhood Plan, and to
make formal representations in response to the submitted draft Local Plan for
the District. These two issues are completely separate, but relate to the same
challenges that face the village. Your
council remains committed to engage with all residents over the shape that
development may take in the future.
approval by a planning inspector for the housing application on Meadow Way came
as no surprise to the Parish Council. It is an indication of what happens when
the local District council cannot show it has a 5 year land supply, and is a
warning of the way future speculative applications will be treated.
question was raised regarding street lighting overnight on Tangmere Road and
Meadow Way in the village. Do you think that the lighting could be turned off
late at night, or do you believe that we need lighting all night? Residents
that find the lighting an issue have asked for a change, and I need your views
before we make a recommendation to WSCC.
are many issues that residents have a view about, and the parish council is tasked
with the job of finding out such views. Help us by letting us know which issue
you feel are important to you.
Rudkin received the BEM from the Queen's representative for West Sussex on
Monday 11th November. The event was emotional, and listening to
John's citation it became clear why he had been honoured for his service to the
same evening the Tangmere Players continued their rehearsals for the Pantomime
due to be presented in early December. Please purchase your tickets for what
promises to be an interesting and fun production.
this is the last Tangmere News of the year, and a combined December and January
Report, may I take this opportunity to wish all residents a Merry Christmas and
safe new year.
