The date has been set for the Annual Parish Meeting, which will take place on Thursday 22 March, starting at 7pm in the Village Hall.
This is not a standard Parish Council meeting where only councillors speak. Over the past few years, this meeting has been used as an opportunity for local groups to give a report on their activities, and for residents to learn more about what’s happening around the village. It also provides a greater opportunity to discuss local issues with council members in a more informal setting.
The meeting is open to all local electors in the parish of Upper Rissington, and we look forward to welcoming you.
The agenda is attached.
Following the consultation, the proposal to designate a neighbourhood area for Upper Rissington was considered by Cotswold District Council on 22nd February, and it was agreed to designate the neighbourhood area as per the boundaries requested. This means the area is designated and the parish can progress the development of a Neighbourhood Plan for this area. Please see the attached notice for more details.
One nomination was received for the election on 29 March.
Mr Robert Hazard is therefore elected without a contest. Cotswold District Council has now issued a notice to that effect.
The Parish Council looks forward to welcoming Mr Hazard.
The Upper Rissington Community Liaison Group held its first meeting on 16 February to discuss the planning issues in Victory Fields. Please find here, the updated ‘Action Log’ for information. This sets out the issues raised, what actions will be taken, and who is responsible for implementing them.
The group has also provided a copy of a letter from Nigel Moor which sets out GCC’s position regarding the issue of whether or not the material left on site should be classed as ‘waste’.
