Parish Council March meeting summary

 Summary of the meeting held in March 2024 is as follows:

  • The Council agreed to support the applications for Listed Building Consent in respect of 3/4 Chapel House and Little Carlton House, though the latter being conditional on several suggested amendments being made
  • The Council is to push for Somerset Council to undertake the CCTV inspection of the culvert that would highlight any deficiencies needing to be addressed as well as improvements to the grill by Woodbarton. The Council is willing to consider making a financial contribution to these works if it would enable them to be actioned sooner rather than later
  • There is no news on when works will be undertaken to deal with water appearing from a well by Jubilee Gardens which causes the run-off down to the carpark. This too is being chased though will be impacted by the monies set aside for such works by Somerset Council
  • Whilst the Parish Council was looking to prune the tree outside the toilets, this was in fact cut back by persons unknown. It remains to be seen if this will regrow from its reduced size

Full minutes of the meeting will be posted on Milverton Parish Council.

The next meeting will be held on Monday 8 April at the Victoria Rooms.

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