Although I am pleased to report that 3 new Councillors have joined the team over the last 12 months (please see previous report) – as of May this year, 3 Councillors have stepped down. We are currently at a level of 7 against a full quota of 10.
We have been receiving an increase in Planning Applications to process over the last few months. Your local Parish Council are consulted by SODC for comment – ‘Approval’ or ‘Objection’ or ‘no serious views’. It can be very enlightening!
New Councillors will be given training. Council meetings take place once a month and also Planning Meetings (to consider Applications) once a month. If you feel you might find this interesting and would like a real say in what Property Developers are allowed to build – in your Parish – please contact Joanne Askin our Parish Clerk (details below).
