At tonights meeting members agreed to support the call by the Taunton & District Civic Society for a review of the Government's draft National Planning Policy Framework.
Members also expressed concern about the proposed Constituency Boundary changes, moving Milverton into Bridgwater, and agreed to contact the other affected parishes (Wiveliscombe and Bishops Lydeard) before considering their response in detail at the November meeting.
Councillors noted that Notaro were keen to press ahead with the development at Creedwell. Details of two Public Meetings were publicised to give parishioners the chance to understand the proposals and form a village view. The meetings will take place on 17th and 25th October and will be held in the Victoria Rooms at 7.30pm. It is likely that Notaro will hold an exhibition of its proposals soon after the second meeting.
Councillors discussed the proposal to purchase some land for a Play Area and noted that TDBC had invited a formal offer. Councillors resolved to make a formal offer and the Clerk was asked to identify funding and seek a valuation to bring to a special meeting of the Parish Council on 11th October. This meeting will approve the final bid figure.
Councillors will undertake a site visist to the Courtfields Allotments on 5th November.
