Invitation to the Parish Assembly - What is the Parish Council up to?

CLOSED Parish Council Chairman's Blog

Author: John Downe

Published: Wednesday, 28th March 2012

In May 2011 many residents voted in the Parish Council elections to appoint the 11 volunteer Parish Councillors. On 23rd April in West Hoathly Village Hall at 8pm the annual Parish Assembly will take place. This is your main yearly opportunity to find out what the Council has been doing and what it is planning to do in a less formal format than the normal Council meetings.

After a short presentation of your Council's activities, the main elements of the Assembly will be in the form of an exhibition at which you can browse, ask questions and contribute ideas at stands covering:-

  • Our Neighbourhood Plan Project which has recently started with support from a number of residents. This Parish has just been awarded additional "Frontrunner" funding from Government to support the Project with Mid Sussex District Council. When complete the Neighbourhood Plan will set out a comprehensive plan for the Parish for the next 15-20 years which will have statutory "teeth" in development planning matters.
  • The recommendations arising from the Highways and Traffic report which was commissioned in 2011.
  • The new West Hoathly Parish Youth Forum which, it is hoped, will enable the Council directly to listen to teenagers concerns and needs and allow specific consultations with them.
  • Proposals with West Hoathly Football Club to update and extend the North Lane Rec Pavilion to make it more flexible and attractive to a wider set of users.
  • The exciting plans for the Parish celebrations of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee over the long weekend 1st -4th June

NB West Hoathly Parish Council's decisions and other minutes of the Parish Council which are recorded in the Clerk's minutes of the statutory meetings of the Council are the complete and formal record. This article is intended to give an informal narrative for residents of what has been happening in your Parish Council.
