Milverton Parish Council September meeting

A summary of the meeting held in September 2022 is as follows:

  • A Planning Application re works at Cleeve Barn, Preston Bowyer, which fell under the Council’s delegated powers was approved. Tree works at Fort Cottage were supported
  • A working group has been set up to liaise with all parties associated with the proposed housing development at Creedwell Orchard
  • A preferred bidder has been agreed, who will undertake the refurbishment work of the toilets. A start date for the work has been pencilled in for October 2022
  • The existing Emergency Plan for the parish is having a thorough review, which will lead to an updated version being produced as soon as possible. It is intended that this will be distributed to all households in due course
  • Footpath 07/10, which runs broadly between the B3227 and Weekmoor Farm has long been shown incorrectly on the official maps, by having a gap in it, for reasons unknown. The lodging of a request for a review to amend the position is to be investigated
  • Contact is to be made with the bus company as a result of buses not turning up after relevant road closures are no longer effective

Full minutes will be posted on the Parish Council website.

The next Parish Council meeting will be held on Monday 10 October (note change from usual date) at the Victoria Rooms.

If you have any queries on any Parish Council matter, please let me know.
