Due to the recent resignation of Councillor Donna Wright a casual vacancy has arisen at the Parish Council.

Should 10 electors request an election, it will be held in May 2021 due to recent legislation preventing elections during the corona virus emergency.  Should no election be called, the Parish Council will be permitted to fill the vacancy by co-option after a 14 day period.

The notice of the vacancy may be viewed by clicking the link below.

Unfortunately, due to the current Coronavirus emergency the Council has decided to pause decision making and consultation on the emerging Local Plan Review. This means that the Pre-Submission version of the Local Plan will not take place in May 2020 as previously agreed. 

The council will now seek to take this decision in July 2020, and follow this with public consultation between July and September. 

The pause in the programme to reflect the current Coronavirus emergency will also have an impact on the ongoing Local Plan timetable.  It is now expected the Council will submit the Plan for examination in early 2021, with adoption expected in early 2022. The Council will update its Local Development Scheme (LDS) to reflect this change to the programme in due course.
