PLEASE NOTE THE NEXT MEETING OF THE PARISH COUNCIL
WILL TAKE PLACE ON TUESDAY 9TH JULY
At the May Annual General Meeting Peter Deehan was re-elected Chair with all councillors retaining portfolio responsibilities as outlined on the useful telephone numbers and email addresses page. Crawley Parish Council consists of five councillors, a Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator and Cricket Warden that share responsibility for looking after the upkeep of your village.
The Licence Application for Village Gateways has now been submitted with the hope that approval will allow installation for summer or early autumn.
On 1st June volunteers met at the pond planting aquatic plants, adding fish and constructing a filter bed as part of the project to naturalise the village pond and improve water quality. Generous donations of materials have been received from residents together with a grant of £500 from Winchester City Council to finance this work.
A sycamore has been removed from the Burial Ground and trees overhanging the path trimmed. The ivy on the trees on the Cricket Ground has been severed. This work is all part of a continued tree maintenance programme.
New coping stones are to be installed on the church wall and gates are to be replaced.
VILLAGE DESIGN STATEMENT
This is about the visual character of the village and how it might be protected or enhanced. The Statement is a Supplementary Planning Document which supplements the Local Plan and forms part of the Local Development Framework for Winchester District. The guidelines must be considered when planning applications are reviewed.
The members of the Village Design Group are Cllr Carole Phillips, Robert Adam, Amanda Bayford, Robin Bayford, Tony Coleman and Trevor Mahood. The group will be working to produce a Village Design Statement to supersede the current version which dates from 2001. A draft will be prepared, and a village consultation event arranged. If in the meantime you have any questions, please contact Carole.
