Pontesbury Parish Council Report: APM March 2018

The Annual Parish Meeting was held on Monday 12 March 2018. Visitors and Councillors were welcomed to the meeting and Cllr Duncan Fletcher gave an update on Parish Council activities throughout the last twelve months. Cllr Fletcher also thanked the Parish Councillors for their involvement in parish activities and for representing the Parish Council and local community at various committees and events. The outgoing Clerk Kate Davies was thanked for all her support over the past five years and the new Clerk welcomed. Activities for the forthcoming twelve months include working with the community to draw up a Neighbourhood Plan. This will be an opportunity for local people to get involved in shaping their local community and is a statutory document which has a material influence on planning decisions in the Parish. There were also reports from Cllr Nick Hignett updating on Shropshire Council activities, from PC Ross Cookson, representatives of the local village halls and from the Parish Pathways Partnership. Thank you to all those who attended and the wider community for your continued support. The Chairman’s Report can be seen in full on the Parish Council website, http://www.pontesburyparishcouncil.org.uk/meetings/annual-parish-meeting-pontesbury-public-hall  or click here.
This was followed by an extraordinary Full Council Meeting primarily to consider the initial support by the Parish Council for the community of Plealey to maintain a valuable community asset in the form of Plealey Methodist Chapel. The next Parish Council meetings will be on Monday 9 April when there will be a Planning Committee meeting at 6.30pm followed by a full Parish Council meeting at 7.30pm. These will take place at the Mary Webb School & Science College. Please note a change in date for the May Planning committee meeting – due to bank holidays, this will now be held on Monday 30 April at 6.30pm at Pontesbury Public Hall. Members of the public are invited to attend all of these meetings.
