Chair continues to represent the Council regarding aspects of planning application AVA/2014/0678 – land off Coast Hill. The main concerns are that the development includes an appropriate proportion of affordable homes which are also subject to a Local Sales and Lettings agreement.
Neighbourhood Plan – a grant of up to £6697.00 has been obtained from the Community Rights Programme, this will be used to engage a consultant to assist in the drafting of the plan. Council unanimously approved additional spending of £3825 to engage the services of an expert in providing landscape evidence (prop. Cllr. Smith sec. Cllr. Anstead). It is anticipated the £1800 already in the 2016-7 PC budget for neighbourhood Plan purposes will be required to facilitate necessary statutory consultation once the draft plan has been prepared. The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group was thanked for its hard and effective work and for its prudent use of the available funding.
PLACE project – report from Cllrs Yorke and Clark on the current state of the RG – Clerk was instructed to ask AVBC to quote for the remedial work. Further, Cllr. Yorke reported in writing that with reference to the further development of the RG the group raised £1000 at Crich Fete (tea tent), has applied for a grant from Derbyshire Environmental Trust, has written to Harron Homes seeking support and intends to employ a funding consultant to help with a submission to Violia Waste ( maximum £70,000)
Burial Ground – clearing of the ground to the right of the current burial area is progressing. The line of the low pressure gas main has been inspected and instructions regarding the easement are awaited (Cllr. Brown stressed the importance of accurate marking of the line of this pipe). Clerk will seek estimates for the re-seeding of the ground and the cutting of hedges. He will also seek to arrange the grubbing out of the hedge on the lower boundary.
Clerk has requested that weeds along gutters and pavements be sprayed by DCC (main roads) and AVBC other areas as appropriate (Cllr Gee agreed to raise this matter with AVBC
