THE PARISH COUNCIL HAS RECEIVED DRAFT CONSULTATION PROPOSALS FOR A RESIDENTIAL SCHEME OF APPROXIMATELY 110 DWELLINGS AT LAND OFF MAIN ROAD IN BICKNACRE.

The Parish Council were contacted by Gladman on 28th October who requested a closed meeting with the Parish Council. This was instantly refused by the Parish Council as we are an open and transparent Parish Council and this meeting may have been perceived in the wrong way. Gladman have a policy of not holding public meetings so our choices were very limited.

After taking advice, the Chair and Clerk decided to invite Gladman to be present at our normal Parish Council monthly meeting.  Our reasoning behind this decision was it would be better that concerned Parishioners could attend this meeting in person to listen to the proposals. It was also important that Parish Councillors understood what was being proposed and gauge the views of our Parishioners.

At this early stage the Parish Council will not make any comment, as always, if and when we receive a valid planning application on the table it will be considered and our local view given at that stage.

The meeting last night was attended by approx. 37 residents clearly not in favour of the development.  Councillors Richard Poulter and Matthew Flack were also present and Councillor Poulter stated he would strongly oppose the development on behalf of local residents.

All views of the proposed application should be channelled in the correct manner, i.e. to the Clerk (clerk@wfandbpc.org.uk) or via the communication channels advertised by Gladman available on the Parish Council web site.

ANTI SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR

The Parish Council is aware that there has been an increase in incidents of vandalism and anti-social behaviour in The Grove/Lyndhurst Drive/ the Hooe Playing Field & Priory Playing Fields

 We have taken as many steps as we can to try and curb these incidences and the local PCSO has been monitoring the situation as best she can.  This is obviously restricted to the amount of time available given the large area that each PCSO is responsible for.

We have also requested assistance from the Police helicopter over both the Hooe and Priory Playing fields where there have also been problems.

We would like to ask you help in identifying any incidents of vandalism or anti-social behaviour wherever and whenever they occur by telephoning the local Police on 101 and reporting anything that you can and getting an incident number.    You may have to leave a message for them to call back.  Alternatively you can call the
PCSO on 07711 147171.

The more information that can be provided the more likely it is that those responsible can be identified and then the Police can take appropriate action.
