COMMUNITY PLAN (CP) ACTING ON YOUR INFORMATION.
We have your views and have put them in the CP document – so what are we doing now? Well we are attempting to put a few of those ideas, concerns or improvements into reality – current projects are:
Crooklands Hill Footpath - work on this project is complete and will be opened to the public on May 4th 2017. The next project is a footway opposite the Crooklands Hotel to complete this project.
New Development - the team is in discussions with SLDC Planners and the developers to ensure they are fully aware of what the community is hoping for from the new development hopefully to ensure a development that will be in keeping with the village and surrounding area and enhance the parish.
Welcome Pack – When answering the Questionnaire many of you felt a 'Welcome Pack' would be a good idea not only for the new people to the community but for everyone. In response the Working team has produced the following, we hope you will find it useful and keep us informed on any changes or additional information you would like included by contacting the Clerk firstname.lastname@example.org Go to the home page to download the pack.
Community gardens – many concerns were raised regarding the look of the village's green spaces with a view to improving and possibly entering ‘The Village in Bloom’ competition. We have made a start on the village hall gardens by clearing the weeds from the garden and removing the trees from the car park area which unfortunately had got too large to be managed we have now replanting those areas with shrubs which hopefully will gives is lots of colour once they have got established.
Our next project will be:
To further the footpath from Crooklands Hill to the canal bridge which takes us to the parish boundary.
To erect a marker advising everyone they are entering our parish at both end of the village on the A65.
