VILLAGE TIDY UP
Thank you to all that joined us for the Village Tidy Up on 9th February, and the village looks so much better. Many people like to litter pick throughout the year when out walking and we would like as many people as possible to join in with this if they feel able.
ROADS AND TRAFFIC
Final approvals are now being sought and we hope to erect these in the summer.
Hampshire Highways have advised local councils of a program of resurface works throughout the county starting in March 2019. The works scheduled are resurfacing of road areas to reduce the occurrence of potholes.
No specific date by location has been given as there is one workforce and is weather dependent. There will be impact to vehicle access and this is limited to the following locations in Crawley, Hacks Lane and New Barn Lane.
Notification will be given by signage located at site area to give locals and travelling public advance warning.
The Parish Council has successfully applied for a grant for £500 from Winchester City Council to purchase pond plants. A working weekend of 25/26th May is being planned for planting and other pond related projects.
A gardener will be maintaining flower beds and a quotation has been accepted to clean the War Memorial name plate.
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 considered.
A group is being formed to produce a Village Design Statement to supersede the current version which dates from 2001. Do contact Carole if you are interested in joining this group.
