Water Issues

 

 

Cllrs Bell and Durrant have today met with the Thames Water senior engineer for the sewerage project. 

Thames Water has a plan with a few options to complete an improved system for Bramley but will only accommodate what Bramley has now, and not any further development.  Work will not begin before 2024 at the earliest.

 

7.

Minchens Lane s.106 issues

 

 

The allotments lease is close to the point at which Bramley PC will be able to sign it.  A specification for the fencing has been outlined to Persimmon by the BDBC Allotments Officer.  A quote is awaited from Persimmon’s contractor for the installation of two extra water troughs and the associated pipework.  These will be financed by Bramley PC, along with the installation of a security gate for the car park.  The fencing around the allotments will be financed by BDBC and supplied by Persimmon.  The existing fencing will be repurposed to fence the car park, and the installation will be paid for by Bramley PC.

Clift Meadow path lighting – it has been agreed that two tall solar powered lamps will be installed at either end of the path, with lower level lights (up to 3) will be installed in between.  It is hoped that the tall lights can be installed this month, before the evenings properly draw in. 

 

8.

Local Plan Update

 

 

 The Economic, Housing & Planning  (EPH) Committee has rejected the spatial strategy – members were unhappy about the housing numbers.  Two motions were passed to disagree with the housing numbers, and then to disagree with the whole strategy.  The EPH Committee have recommended to the BDBC Cabinet to reject the strategy.    

 

9.

Neighbourhood Plan

 

 

The NP update cannot move too much further forward at this stage, as it is waiting on the Local Plan policies.  However, a working group meeting is to be scheduled.

 

10.

Date of Next Meeting

 

 

The next Planning Committee meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 11th October, to be held at the Bramley Room at Bramley Village Hall.

 

Meeting closed at 8.14m
