The project has been delayed by funding difficulties caused by a change of Government and the Comprehensive Spending Review. All other aspects have been agreed and it is hoped that the funding can be confirmed in the New Year.
The Parish Council passed the following Planning Applications
- 23/10/0018 CHANGE OF USE OF AGRICULTURAL FORAGE STORE BARN TO STABLING AND FORAGE BARN AT SCREEDY FARM, MILVERTON
- 23/10/0019 ERECTION OF SINGLE STOREY EXTENSION TO SIDE AND REPLACEMENT OF CONSERVATORY TO REAR AT FOXES HOLLOW WOOD STREET MILVERTON
In respect of the Preston Farm footpath diversion Councillors were informed of the liklihood of two objections which would ineveitably lead to an expensive Public Inquiry.
Councillors considered a request from the Community Speedwatch for permanent signs and agreed to consult SCC.
Councillors also discussed the latest letter from SCC detailing the cuts that are to be made. Those around road drainage and bus services caused the most concern. It was agreed to write to SCC seeking more clarification about the detail and how SCC expected parishes to contribute.
The date for the Annual Parish Meeting was agreed at 13th April 2010.
