REPORTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES

2309_[6] Chairman’s Report

  • The Chairman thanked councillors present at the Clutton Flower Show for representing the council.
  • The Chairman reported that Temple Cloud in Bloom were celebrating 10 years since they first proposed forming in September 2013 and approached the Parish council with a proposal to set up planting containers in various spots around the village in an attempt to make Temple Cloud look attractive to those driving through as well as the residents of the village. The Parish Council were very happy to back the proposal and offer funding and have continued to do so to this day. The Chairman and Parish Council would like to publicly recognise and express appreciation on behalf of the community for all the work and dedication of all the volunteers since forming. In January 2014 the group held their first meeting to plan a way forward. These first volunteers are still the ones you see today in their turquoise tee shirts planting, weeding and cleaning the various areas extended now around the village. The work of Temple Cloud in Bloom is greatly valued and significantly enhances the village.
  • The Chairman thanked Sandra Blair for founding and leading Temple Cloud in Bloom and Beccy Angell for taking over and leading Temple Cloud in Bloom.

2309_[7] Clerk’s Report

  • Noted: correspondence shared with council members listed in the appendix.
  • RESOLVED: The council have no objection to use of the village hall car park for church meetings. (Ref email from member of the public to councillors sent 20/07/2023, 19:12)
  • Noted: correspondence from a member of the public shared by email 6/9/23 with the council about the possibility of running a club on the pump track. The parish council expressed the preference for a detailed proposal and noted possible considerations such as exclusive access, funds raised by public donations and reviewing the balance between maintaining an ethos of unrestricted use versus meeting the needs of clubs and providing training and organised events.
  • A notice of vacancy following the resignation of Cllr Helen Neary was posted on 1st Sept 2023. The Chairman thanked Cllr Neary at the extraordinary meeting on 5th Sept for all her hard work over the years and especially for her work towards the pump track.
  • Brandown Close estate management and BANES had been contacted regarding cutting back the hedge blocking the Brandown Close public footpath. The clerk has been informed that a tree surgeon has been booked to complete this work and it appeared that this work had been carried out. The estate management has been notified of residents’ preferences regarding the height of the hedge and asked to consult with residents regarding any work on the height.
  • The condition of the hedge about 200m down from the pub on Temple Inn Lane was discussed and the council requested that the Clerk report this to BANES via fixmystreet.
  • To report: The scheme of delegation for exception circumstances was applied by the Clerk in consultation with the Chairman to approve urgent repairs of the ride on mower, estimated cost of £550 to £580 to protect the interests of the community and ensure council business continuity. It was considered an exceptional circumstance because to delay for a council meeting to approve the repair could have potentially increased council costs by a significant amount. The remaining annual budget available for mower repairs was £737 at time of repair.
