Original post – 17th November 2018:
Amongst all of the other Christmas events coming up in the village, I wanted to tell you about a really important one.
On Saturday 24th November – from 2pm in the Village Hall, we will be holding an open Council Meeting to specifically discuss the Cycle Route.
Some of you may know that the Planning Application has been submitted and your Councillors want to use this open forum to understand your opinions – both for and against – so that we can create the formal response on behalf of the Parish that is well thought through and considers everyone’s views.
The plans and supporting documents are on the North Somerset Council website at: https://planning.n-somerset.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=PHKVCHLPKX900
If you want to search direct, say from your PC, look for planning application 18/P/4758/FUL.
This WILL impact the village. Please have a look at the plans over the next few days and come and share your views on Saturday 24th. Also, please feel free to leave your own comments directly on the Planning application.
The formal agenda for the meeting is here
Thank you. Steve Dixon, Parish Clerk
