Summary - Parish Council Meeting held Thu 6th May 2021
The first part of the meeting was the area of most public interest with several questions relating to the potential site for a Farringdon Village Hall. Most were concerned with access and what form the new Village Hall might take.
While it is not possible under current guidelines, the Village Hall Charity is committed to hold a public consultation meeting or meetings to establish a realistic compromise between individual demands for facilities and a design that is both sustainable financially and attractive to potential users.
There was a Road and Footpath report from Cllr.David Williams (The full text of the May report can be viewed here) and Cllr Williams also drew attention to the several fly tipping incidents around the parish roads and trackways.
Cllr. Andy Clegg drew attention to the speed of traffic on local roads particularly, but not exclusively, on the A32 where there is a statutory 30 mph speed limit.
The Farringdon Garden, in the area beside New Road, formerly occupied by the Parsonage Close playground, was also discussed and Cllr. Alison DeLedesma reported that planting of the various areas would be (weather permitting) taking place soon.
An application for a grant from Farringdon Horticultural Society was approved by a majority vote with some Councillors expressing reservations about the decision.
A planning application (SDNP/21/01983/HOUS and SDNP/21/01984/LIS - Listed building consent - Garden outbuilding and carport following demolition of existing garage at Angerton, Church Road) was passed on to the planning authority for consideration although there was some concern expressed about the size of the carport and the proximity to the neighbouring property.
Accounts etc were approved and the meeting closed.
