This is the
first report for 2014, and there are already many issues to let you know about.
Parish meeting of the year took place on Thursday 9th January 2014 and the main
thrust of the meeting concerned the future of the village. That may have
been housing applications, cricket club survival, carpark problems, allotment
issues, planning applications, flooding concerns, traveller defences, pot holes
or village signs, club charges at the Village Centre, ditch drainage or
whatever, it was all discussed in a public forum. Many of you
were unable to join in the discussion, but all the subjects will impact on your
enjoyment of your community. You may feel that you have no influence on what
happens in your village. Some may not even see this as their village, but the
truth is that what will happen in Tangmere is being discussed in a public forum
In 2014 there
will be a brand new opportunity for local residents to make their voice heard
to shape the future of the village. Not only that, but the Parish Council
approved plans to call £60,000 from their residents in 2014 to help their
spending plans develop. That may seem a lot of money, but with 1200 houses that
means just £1.00 per week for each home in the village. Just think what
we could do if there was another 1000 homes here! That is
actually a real question. Just think what we would do with another 1000 homes?
planning for the future. It is planning right now. Do not miss your chance to
See you on the 1st February to find out what this is all
The next full Parish Council meeting will be held at 7.30pm on Thursday, 13 March at the Village Centre. All residents are invited to come and give their view.
