Matters Arising


Planning Permission

Cllr Martin kindly produced copies of a planning application for a temporary horticultural workers mobile home at Orchard Cottage. The Council rejected the application on the grounds that the mobile home would not be temporary and was living accommodation for the owners.


It was agreed that the precept for 2017 to 2018 would remain largely unchanged at £3,875 compared to £ 3,805 for the current year.

A payment of £271.99 to Mrs Hoskin for gardening at the playing field was approved.

Any Other Business

Cllr Warne was thanked by the Chairman for repairing the slats on the Village seats which were being painted by volunteers.

The Clerk was asked to write to the Pillaton Horticultural society to enquire if they wished to maintain the plants in the playing field.
