Declarations of Interest


Public Forum

There were 7 members of the public present.

Concern was expressed from the floor regarding the pre application for 2 dwellings at 2 Briars Ryn. The concerns were; inadequate access for emergency vehicles; the possible overflow of septic tanks; increased traffic in the Ryn; the possible visual affect and a right of way not shown in the drawings.

The size of the new highway signs indicating the width restriction at Clapper bridge was adversely commented upon but the Chairman explained that the signs were standard Highway dimensions and better than continuing damage to the bridge.

The number of cars parking on the pavements in Barton Meadow was criticised. The Chairman said the Council had no control over such matters but hoped that residents would respect their neighbours.


The Minutes of 6th December 2016 Council meetings were accepted unanimously.

Matters Arising


Planning Permission

The Council rejected the pre application for two dwellings at 2 Briars Ryn on the grounds of lack of access and that the drawings did not show a right of way. The Chairman thanked Cllr Martin for producing copies of the application.


There were no payments.
