A REMINDER: The household recycling centre in Salisbury will be shut between Thursday 9th November and Saturday 18th November inclusive.
October meeting – key themes:
- · Village Hall questionnaire
- · Village Christmas tree
- · Right hand turn from the A36 into Windwhistle Lane to West Grimstead
- · Installation of a pedestrian gate from Oakwood Grove amenity land to Southampton Road
- · Planning applications
- · Recreation Ground bookings
- Village Hall questionnaire
The responses to the questionnaire have been collected and the analysis of the results has been completed. Cllr Britton was unable to attend the meeting and was therefore not present to share his comments in person. The parish council agreed to wait for the recommendations of the COB working party, once they have met to discuss the results.
Village Christmas tree
Preparations are well under way for a village Christmas tree this winter on Waleran Close. A new electricity supply has been installed and groundwork completed. The tree will be in place for the month of December.
Right hand turn from the A36 into Windwhistle Lane to West Grimstead
Alderbury parish council have agreed to support a request to Highways England by Grimstead parish council, to erect ‘no right hand turn’ signs to prevent traffic travelling from the south towards Salisbury turning right, across the dual carriageway into Windwhistle Lane for safety reasons.
Installation of a pedestrian gate from Oakwood Grove amenity land to Southampton Road
A budget of up to £500 was agreed to install a new pedestrian gate at the Oakwood Grove amenity lane, so that pedestrians can gain access to Southampton Road. Quotations are currently being requested.
Recreation Ground bookings
Following a working party meeting in the summer with representatives from some of the village groups that use the Recreation Ground, a draft policy has been compiled. Following discussion, it was agreed that Cllrs Hartford and Hughes would make further suggested amendments to the draft and bring the revised version back to a future meeting for agreement.
