Planning Applications
Only one planning application came before the Parish Council at its September meeting, namely:

  • 192594: Church Cottage, Church Walk: Proposed single storey rear extension and pitched roof to existing garage. The Parish Council objected strongly to this application.

  • Dog Fouling: an Update
    The Parish Council authorised the strimming of the footpath next to The Pigeon House. Subsequently fresh dog poo was found on the newly strimmed area! Please be vigilant and report anyone responsible for not clearing up after their dog. Also, you may notice areas on footpaths marked with spray paint. This indicates that dog poo has been seen there. If it is still there and you are feeling public-spirited, perhaps you could clear it up. And, if you carry a can of spray paint with you ……….

    After receiving representations, the Parish Council requests that residents trim hedges overhanging pavements. The Parish Council has made a request to Herefordshire Council to cut hedges on both the C1121 and the A417. On the latter road vehicles have lost wing mirrors near Isle of Rhea as a result hitting overhanging hedges at speed.

    Is anyone prepared to……..
    …….organise/join a small group to keep the playground tidy?
    …….organise/join a small group to keep the weeds in the gutters at bay ?
