8 Reports

8.1

Reports from Parish Council representatives

a.

Allotments & Burial Ground Update – see appendix B.

The Clerk noted that clearance of the free allotments should be happening this week, with the ditching work scheduled for the first two weeks in March.  Cllr Ansell has been in touch with the Church re extending the ditching work into their land as well, but has not yet received a reply.  Local residents and allotment holders will be written to with details of the work to be carried out.

 

b.

Neighbourhood Development Plan – Cllr Bell gave a verbal update.

Following recent consultations on the Local Development Plan and the Strawberry Fields planning application, Cllr Murphy proposed that all work on the Bramley NDP be scrapped, noting that he felt that it would be little use in fighting development in Bramley.

Cllr Murphy asked what NDP is going to achieve for Bramley?  He does not believe that the NP will actually have any influence on BDBC planning decisions.  Cllr Bell responded that the NP will be taken note of if Local Plan cannot show 5 year land availability.  He stated that an NP at the examination stage will take precedence over any emerging Local Plan, until the Local Plan has been ratified.

The motion to abandon the NDP process was rejected by majority vote.

Cllr Bell stated that extra work will need to be carried out by consultants to complete the NP – this will come to a cost of £10,250.  The Clerk confirmed that this would be within budget.  Cllr Lane proposed the expenditure, Cllr Clarke seconded, and the motion was agreed by majority vote.

 

c.

Village Hall Trust – see appendix B.

The Clerk confirmed that plans are going ahead for resurfacing work for both the Village Hall and Clift Meadow car parks.  This will be paid for with the last of the available s.106 money, and must be complete by 31st March.  The Clerk noted that the Village Hall and Clift Meadow were working on the assumption that the Parish Council would handle both the receipt of the s.106 money and paying the contractors.  It was proposed by Cllr Capel and seconded by Cllr Lane that the work and finances continue on this basis.  Unanimously agreed.  The work is due to be carried out the week beginning 29th February.

Cllr Lane highlighted the Village Hall users meeting on 24th February.

Youth Club worker funding – this grant was agreed in principle for 2016/17 at the November PC meeting.  Cllr Bell noted disappointment that sessions will drop from two to one per week.  Chris Holland noted that dropping to one session will enable a better quality service from the two to three youth workers than in the previous year.  Cllr Bell proposed giving the grant, Cllr Murphy seconded.  Unanimously agreed.   Clerk to process.

 

 

 

 

Clerk

10.2

Clift Meadow Pavilion – shutter repairs – a request for funding has been received from Clift Meadow Trust for the refurbishment of the shutters at the Pavilion.  However, since receiving this request, they have discovered that the shutters are now not repairable.  This means that they will need to be replaced.  The Clerk is awaiting details on cost – it will be more than the £527 originally quoted.  Cllr Bell proposed ring fencing £5000 for possible replacement, Cllr lane seconded, unanimously agreed.  Clerk to liaise with CMT on details.

VILLAGE HALL TRUST

Local Infrastructure Fund (LIF) – Update Christine Rowley Development Manager

Under the LIF scheme a number of objectives and goals are set by Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council as part of the Service Level Agreement (SLA’s).  The LIF Steering Group made up of 2 Trustees from the Village Hall Trust, 2 Trustees from Clift Meadow Park Trust and a Representative from Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council made a decision at their second Steering Group Meeting to focus on 8 of the SLA’s targets for the 1st year of this 3 year initiative.

The Development Manager was asked to concentrate on these 8 objectives employed on a one year contract for 25 hours per week.

Listed below are these eight targets and what has been achieved over the past 10 months.

 

(1)    Plan, develop and maintain a programme of activities for all age groups in response to the identified aspirations working with partners, agencies and statutory bodies

  • Under 16 : 2 x Tennis Taster Activities : 2 x Roller Disco : 1 x Film Night : Music with Mummy x 3

Total Numbers attending = 206

  • Monthly Presence in Bramley Magazine with features & adverts
  • Features & Ads Publicised in Neighbouring Village Magazines
  • Features & Ads Publicised in Basingstoke Gazette
  • Set up Steering Group for Website Design

(5)    Monitor and analyse usage of the three facilities and carry out customer satisfaction surveys

  • Gaps in Hall Bookings identified and targeted
  • Customer Survey being developed
  • Hallmaster V2 being implemented to be used in conjunction with above

 

(6)    Prepare reports for the Community Facilities Manager Steering Group

POLICING & NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH

Neighbourhood Update – Speed Enforcement

Excess Speed is currently one of our main community and district priorities for the Neighbourhood Policing Team, and we are working with Hampshire Police Road Safety Units, local councils and Community Speedwatch teams in order to reduce excess speed on our roads.

 

If you wish to make a report, please include details of the location and a particular time of day when you think the problem is at its worse.

 

Police officers at the roadside will either verbally warn, or report the motorist for the offence by issuing them with a Traffic Offence Report form.

A copy of that report will then be sent to the Hampshire Police Summary Justice Unit, where after carrying out relevant checks, a decision will be made whether to offer the offender a place on a Driver Awareness Training course, (£90) or send them a Fixed Penalty Notice (3 penalty points & £100 fine).

In extreme cases (e.g. over 49 mph in a 30 limit) the motorist will be reported for a court summons.

 

Figures for  January 2016;

FPN – fixed penalty notice,      DAT – driver awareness training (course),        VW – verbal warning

HIGHWAYS/RIGHTS OF WAY

Our application for funding on the Bullsdown Path from HCC was heard on the 8th and I am awaiting a response.

 

TRANSPORT/ROAD SAFETY PROJECT

The consultant is currently in the process of designing and marking up the proposed options drawings. She has undertaken the C2 notices and received all of the responses, in addition to purchasing the land registry information and undertaking discussions in relation to land ownership and highway boundaries and the project is currently on track. They have found that Flats 1-6 Jibbs Meadow appear to be under management company ownership and each of the deeds of the flats allows parking of motor vehicles. It is again unlikely we will have any information in relation to the likelihood of access over this land for inclusion within the feasibility study.

Flood consultant AAH,  I have attached their final report, and we await the final outcome of the Planning Application after consultation with the Environment agency.

Traffic modelling for the village, this is progressing well and we have modelled the whole village on current data, there are some minor tweaks on modelling of the railway traffic and we will need to conduct our own surveys in March ( I will be asking for volunteers !) to then feed into this model. I have attached a video capture of the software in operation.

 

CLIFT MEADOW TRUST

Clift Meadow car park will be closed in very near future for the tarmacking to take place. Likely to be the week beginning 29th February, and the car park will be closed for several days and notices will be put up.

Summer School 2016 will now not be happening in August so CMT looking for alternative activity. No reason known for cancellation at present.

Farmers Market a regular bi monthly event and lots of promotion will be done for this. January market made just over £100 profit.

Lots of events being planned for 2016.

CMT are proposing to have a BBQ for the Queen’s 90th birthday on 11th June after the farmers market. This will include a fun fair, BBQ, bouncy castle.

St Georges Fete preparation going well with lots of stalls already confirmed and events are to run in a central arena.

CMT are looking at repairing broken front door shutter and possibly in the future investing in a new front door or metal gate with alarm. Also looking at making one of the other outside doors a solid emergency entrance door in the near future.  Enquiries to be made .

Also looking to have a thank you BBQ for all the organisations that rent out both halls.
