    Bodenham Parish Council Notice
    WAR MEMORIAL AWARDED LISTED BUILDING STATUS


    Historic England have just notified the Parish Council that, following consultation with the Council and the relevant statutory bodies, the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has decided to add Bodenham War Memorial to the List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.

    The Memorial is now listed at Grade II and the listing can be found on the Historic England website at https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1462186

    Herefordshire Council, as the local planning authority, will now be preparing the statutory notices required under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.

    In its response to the Consultation, the Parish Council provided Historic England with photographs of the War Memorial, of the Order of Service for the Dedication of the Memorial on 19 March 1921 and of the Service itself. In particular, they reported to Historic England the tradition that the famous Armistice hymn ‘O Valiant Hearts’, written by Sir John Stanhope Arkwright, was sung to its famous tune for only the second time at the Dedication Service. Historic England have noted this, but, because the tradition is not supported by any source evidence, could not include it in the List Entry. However, if the necessary evidence can be found, it may be submitted to be included in the List Entry at a later date.

    Bodenham Parish Council Notice
    PARISH COUNCIL NEWS (JUNE 2019)


    Parish and County Council Elections.
    There was an uncontested election for Bodenham Parish Council on 2nd May. Nine councillors were elected. Consequently, there is a vacancy on the Parish Council, which will be filled by co-option at the Parish Council Meeting on 3rd June. Anyone wishing to stand should contact the Parish Clerk immediately.

    The result of the contested election for Hampton Ward on Herefordshire Council was that Bruce Baker received 468 votes, while John Harrington received 611 votes and was duly elected. The Parish Council wishes to record its thanks to Bruce Baker for the work he did for Bodenham while he was Hampton Ward Councillor.

    Planning Applications
    Planning application 174285/F: Land at Brockington Hall had been opposed by both the Parish Council and Herefordshire Council. The applicant appealed. The appeal was rejected. The reasons behind the appeal decision can be found on the Herefordshire Council website.

    Planning application 191417: Moor Court Farm: Proposed farm road, concrete areas to apply harvesting pad and open sided cover for grading machine was considered by the Parish Council at its Meeting on 13th May, when the Parish Council made no objection to the application.

    Dog Fouling……..
    …. continues to be a concern. If your dog fouls in a public place, you should clean up the mess. Always carry a poop scoop, which is a specially designed plastic shovel, or a bag to carry the mess to a bin. Dog owners should not allow their pets to foul at random in public areas. You can report dog fouling at https://www.herefordshire.gov.uk/info/200226/report_a_problem/115/dogs

    Fly Tipping………
    ……… also continues to be a concern, particularly in Smeadals Lane, where quantities of what appears to be animal bedding are frequently dumped. Fly tipping is a criminal offence. It can be reported at https://www.herefordshire.gov.uk/info/200226/report_a_problem/98/fly_tipping.

    Adult Exercise Equipment
    A consultation was held seeking views about installing adult exercise equipment on the Village Green. Although the results of the consultation showed considerable support for this, it was felt that there had been insufficient responses to the questionnaire to justify proceeding at this point. It was also felt that the Parish would benefit from the creation of a Parish Facebook page in order to reach a wider audience. This is being investigated.

    Parking outside the Post Office

    WARD COUNCILLOR'S NEWSLETTER (FEBRUARY 2019)


    This must be my final Ward Newsletter before the Herefordshire County Council elections on 2nd May. A period of political ‘Purdah’ comes into force on or about 12th March and selected candidates for election, including sitting Members, have been advised not to openly campaign, except by way of official literature, between that date and 2nd May and as most local newsletter editors will be publishing their April editions after 12th March, I’m prevented from going into print.

    It’s been a pleasure to represent you over the past four years and I’ve done my best to help and assist with your various problems and concerns during this time, and for the most part, I think I’ve succeeded. However, I’ll still be available to offer and help or advice between now and 2nd May.

    I’ve tried to attend most of your regular Parish Council meetings, which has given me the opportunity to meet many local residents and I’ve attempted to make my monthly newsletters informative and interesting, without being overtly political.

    An additional election will be held on 2nd May to elect your Parish Council and details of the candidates will be published locally and on your Parish Council web sites. If you need any information regarding these elections, such as transport, polling station addresses or postal votes etc., please drop me an email or give me a call.

    With best wishes

    Herefordshire Council Notice
    THE NATURAL FLOOD MANAGEMENT PROJECT


    The following description of the Natural Flood Management (NFM) Project is taken from Herefordshire Council’s recent letter to the Parish Council:

    The Herefordshire Wye and Lugg Natural Flood Management (NFM) project is one of 24 catchment scale projects funded by the recent £15m DEFRA allocation for NFM projects in England (funding secured until 31 March 2021). It is one of four catchment scale projects in the Environment Agency West Midlands area together with three community scale NFM projects. The project has four main objectives:

  • Reduce flood risk to local communities;

  • Gather evidence and develop our knowledge around NFM where there are currently gaps;

  • Engage communities around NFM and develop partnerships; and

  • Deliver wider benefits, e.g. water quality, enhanced biodiversity, socio economic benefits.


  • The Project’s initial focus will be around bringing NFM into key Flood and Coastal Risk Management (FCRM) schemes, as well as working in seven priority sub-catchments which experience both local flooding and water quality issues:

  • Cheaton / Cogwell / Ridgemoor Brook system (above Leominster and Frome);

  • Tedstone Brook (above Bromyard);

  • Dulas Brook (above Ewyas Harold);

  • Pentaloe Brook (above Mordiford);

  • The Red, Norton and Twyford Brook system (above Rotherwas, Hereford);

  • The Bodenham and Millcroft Brooks (above Bodenham); and

  • Brimfield Brook (above Brimfield and Orleton).


  • Herefordshire Council are the lead organisation for the Project, working in partnership with the Environment Agency and other key delivery partners, including but not limited to, Severn Rivers Trust and the Wye and Usk Foundation to ensure the Project is delivered successfully. Mrs Bethany Lewis has been employed by Herefordshire Council as the Project Officer and is therefore the main point of contact for this Project. To help local delivery, Severn Rivers Trust and the Wye and Usk Foundation will be employing Catchment Advisors who will be engaging with landowners and advising them as to how they can use natural processes.

    NFM is based around the principle of working with natural processes to help slow down the flow of water, aiming to hold the water back in the upper reaches of the catchment to help reduce the risk of flooding to downstream communities. NFM can involve a variety of things including; working with farmers to help improve their land management practices with the aim of increasing soil infiltration, installing attenuation features (e.g. ponds and wetlands), and building leaky woody structures which help slow the flow of water down the channel. The two videos below help demonstrate this idea.

    http://www.highwaterfilm.co.uk/

    http://www.highwaterfilm.co.uk/library/

    It is really important to get communities involved with the Project and it is therefore planned to set up NFM Community Groups within the catchments who will draw on their local knowledge to help guide the Project. The NFM Community Group would be made up of local resident and key delivery organisations, e.g. Herefordshire Council, Flood Action Group, Catchment Advisors, Environment Agency and key landowners.

    As part of the Defra funding requirement the Project must also gather evidence on the benefits and impacts of NFM. A monitoring plan is therefore being produced for the Project which includes things like river flow and level monitoring and soil monitoring. It is also hoped to set up some citizen science projects which will rely on volunteers, e.g. fixed point photography monitoring of watercourses responses to flooding or wildlife and habitat studies. The details of these monitoring plans are still being finalised, however it would be great to draw on local knowledge and interests to set up these citizen science projects.

    In order to inform the communities about the Project and encourage community engagement ‘project launch’ events will be organised in each of the catchments. The project launch event for the Bodenham & Millcroft brooks catchment was held on the evening of Wednesday, 23th January 2019 at the Siward James Centre Bodenham, HR1 3LS and was attended by about 35 local residents.

    To see the poster and a map of the twin catchment areas of the Millcroft and Moor Brooks, which are the focus for the Bodenham part of the overall NFM Project, please click on the ‘more details’ link below.

    Balfour Beatty Living Places Notice
    ROAD GRITTING IN BAD WEATHER


    Following the recent bad weather Balfour Beatty Living Places have circulated the following letter about the gritting of roads in the County:

    “Following the recent extreme weather it has come to our attention that there are several rumours circulating regarding gritting routes, responsibilities/ liabilities and use of grit from grit bins.

    Herefordshire Council has identified priority and secondary routes across the county covering almost 600 miles of our roads. These can be found at https://www.herefordshire.gov.uk/info/200196/roads/232/winter_gritting_routes/2.

    We monitor the weather forecast constantly and where road temperatures are forecast to be below freezing we grit to ensure maximum efficacy and prevent ice forming on the roads wherever possible, having to prioritise key routes before we are able to service secondary routes. Obviously we have to take into account the likelihood of rain and snow in assessing the frequency of gritting and the level of grit applied. In addition to this, we also use snow contractors around the County, usually local farmers with access to tractors with ploughs attached to clear the more rural roads during heavy snowfall.

    Given the extreme nature of the weather, we have had to use all available resource to concentrate on the A roads and other priority routes. We understand the frustrations that we are unable to grit all roads. but we work to ensure the safety of the general public and so we have to prioritise where our resources will be most effective.

    With regards to salt provided in grit bins, this can be spread by anyone who is able and does not have to be a Balfour Beatty employee. However, the grit provided in the grit bins is for use only on public roads and footways and not for use on private driveways. Spreading this grit does not mean that the person undertaking the spreading is liable if anyone then has an accident, neither does clearing the path outside your property.

    If you have any queries regarding the above, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

    Kind regards,

    Carys

    Bodenham Parish Council Notice
    PARISH COUNCIL CODE OF CONDUCT


    Chapter 7 of Part 1 of the Localism Act 2011 made provision for a new standards regime which came into force on 1 July 2012. This places on authorities, such as district and parish councils, a duty to promote and maintain high standards of conduct by their members and co-opted members and requires them each to adopt a code of conduct and to put in place arrangements to deal with any allegations of failure to comply with that code.

    Herefordshire Council has revised its Code of Conduct to comply with the new legislation and has encouraged parish councils to base their own codes of conduct on this. This is because any complaint about an alleged infringement of a parish council code of conduct is dealt with by Herefordshire Council, and not by the parish council concerned, and so, by having similar codes in force across the County, the handling of complaints is made quicker and simpler.

    Accordingly, at its Meeting on 6 August 2012 Bodenham Parish Council adopted a new Code of Conduct, closely based on that of Herefordshire Council, which you can see by clicking on the link below.

    Details of the new complaints procedure can also be found at
