The Police Commissioner has yet to reply to an invitation to visit Crich Parish.
The signpost outside Sycamore Farm on Plaistow Green Rd. has disintegrated.
A representation was made in objection to planning application AVA/2016/1158 Coddington Top Farm (see Planning Applications below) on the grounds of negative impact on an important rural site and in the belief that existing restricted consent should be respected.
Cty. Cllr. Williams will attend the meeting to be held on Monday next with representatives of the Clinical Commissioning Group and Derbyshire Healthcare. A number of Members also intend to attend this meeting of agencies on whose decisions the maintenance of day-care at the Glebe is largely dependent. Further, he is hopeful that the centre of Fritchley will be selected to take part in a pilot scheme to test the impact on road safety of imposing a 20 mph zone. He was also able to report that there would be no change to the County Council subsidy for rural bus services before April 2018.
Cty. Cllr. Taylor congratulated Chair and Members of the Parish Council who presented the community at the Planning Board meeting, which considered the further extension of the Roe’s Lane development. He questioned the Planning Authority’s judgement that Crich is a “sustainable community” as it fails to meet the criteria relating to employment opportunities, adequate public transport, availability of school places and health services. He reported that if any of his Community Leadership Fund is unspent he will consider allocating it to the Glebe Field Centre in support of day-care. He was pleased to hear that there has been an improvement in response times by Call Derbyshire and agreed to pursue the repair of numerous failed street lights in the Parish.
AVBC Cllr. Gee was asked to meet the site agent at Roe’s Lane to draw attention to the way in which mud from the site is being spread on the road by visiting vehicles. He was requested to ask that Planning Application AVA/2016/1158 should not be decided under delegated powers.
His attention was drawn to the lack of bus shelters on the road between Bullbridge and Town End compared with similar stretches of road in other parts of the Borough (AVBC is the major provider of these structures).
The Minutes were accepted and signed by Chair.
