Bodenham Parish Council Notice


Parish Council Meetings.
It is still not possible to set a date for the resumption of Parish Council meetings. Essential Parish Council business is conducted remotely. When meetings resume, there is likely to be a backlog of business, such that at this point it is not possible to say when or whether the annual meetings, which should have taken place at the May Meeting, will take place. Updates will be given, when available, via the Newsletter and, more immediately, via the Website, Facebook page and mailing list. See below for details of these.

Planning Applications -
Planning applications will be considered remotely by the Parish Council. No planning applications have been received since those reported in the March Newsletter, nor have any decisions on previously submitted planning applications been received.

The Annual Audit of the Parish Council……..
…….. has been completed and approved by the Internal Auditor. A notice will be posted on noticeboards in due course announcing the period for public inspection of the Parish Council’s audit figures. This period is likely to be for a month from early July. An update will be given in the next Newsletter.

Bodenham Lake……
…. car park remains closed to limit numbers. However, it is not physically possible to close the Lake as there are public rights-of-way on site.

The Concrete Bridge behind Bodenham Church….
….. between the churchyard and the metal bridge across the river has been closed for some time and remains closed. It is unsafe and will be replaced by Balfour Beatty, possibly later this summer. However, the tape preventing access has been untied on several occasions. If you find that the tape has been untied, could you please replace it, while not taking any risks, given that the bridge is unsafe.
