BARFORD RESIDENTS' ASSOCIATION
SAND AND GRAVEL UPDATE :
August has been a relatively quiet month due to the holiday season but we do have a number of points on which to update you as follows:
We promised to hold a second information meeting for those who could not attend the August event and this is scheduled for 7.00pm on Monday 9th October at The Memorial Hall.
Those attending our information evening in August pledged a total of £1,150 towards our fighting fund. A big thank you to all those that made a pledge.
We have arranged a meeting with Matt Western, our local MP, to update him on our progress and seek his support.
We have now received the final reports on Landscape and Heritage from our consultants and we intend to send these to Warwickshire County Council in due course. We are also planning to commission a Hydrology and Flooding study due to the risk of flooding to neighbouring properties.
We are still no further forward in obtaining a timetable of events from Warwickshire County Council and therefore we do not know when the Minerals Plan will be debated by Cabinet and when it will go to the full Council for review. Mr Les Caborn our local County Councillor has agreed to arrange a meeting with Izzi Secombe (Chair of Council) and Jeff Clarke (Minerals Portfolio Holder). We have been asking for this meeting for some time and it will give us the opportunity to debate our concerns.
Remember all donations, no matter how small, are hugely appreciated.
