ANNUAL PARISH MEETING

ANNUAL PARISH MEETING

for residents of the village

On 14 May at 7 p.m. there will be an Annual Parish Meeting at the Welcome Centre.

This is not a Parish Council meeting, although Parish Councillors will be present.  It is a meeting for residents and your opportunity to discuss activities and current issues of interest or concern within the village. So ask yourself:

  • are you happy with life in Little Stanion?

  • do you know what the Parish Council is doing or can do for you?

  • do you know what its priorities are?

  • do you have ideas of your own that you would like the Council to take on board?

  • how do you think life could be improved in the village?

You can raise these questions and any others that are relevant to you. So why not come along and have your say or just listen to what others think.

All electors within Little Stanion are welcome to attend.

BUS SERVICES TO THE VILLAGE

From the end of May 2019 there will be a reduction in the regularity of bus services through the village. This is due to reductions in funding for public transport, and the fact that No 8 and 18 bus services are not well used. As soon as details are available revised timetables will be published.

VILLAGE DEVELOPMENT INFORMATION

A number of residents have shown concern at the lack of activity to complete the village development and the Parish Council has received this statement from the developer

JME continue to be fully committed to progressing works as promptly and efficiently as possible, and work with all the stakeholders to achieve a successful and completed project.

 Work has slowed up over the winter months, however we are currently procuring suitable contractors to carry out soft landscaping works in Long and Short Meadow, this will be followed by laying the tarmac on the paths in these areas. The shortage of suitable planting stock is causing some difficulty, which is explained in more detail on the attached statement from Lockhart Garrett.

With regard to the work in the village square area of the site we are working through due diligence with funders and this has raised a number of legacy points that have to be worked through systematically before work can commence.
