It gives me great pleasure to introduce the Brindle Parish Council website.
The aim of the site is to keep parishioners informed of the Council's activities and proceedings. Also, the site provides an archive of minutes and other Parish Council documents. We will undertake to keep the site up to date and relevant.
The Parish Council Meetings are held about every 6 weeks at 7-
Members of the public can attend so please come along to see what we do for the parish.
We also want to hear your views on the site, the good, the bad, the missing, the irrelevant. Please pass your views to the Webmaster or any Parish Councillor.
The September meeting was attended by several residents who raised issues with un-repaired highway holes and the old Brindle Workhouse site.
The Police did not attend, so the Council digested the latest "In The Know". Only one crime was reported for Brindle, that of the recent burglary at Duxon Hill.The Police, at the last PACT meeting, had urged people to secure their sheds and outbuildings due to a recent surge in thefts from unsecured premises.
There was little to report on progress with the many outstanding highway and footpath repairs, though LCC had reported that items were repaired in order of priority. One senior member observed that with regard to footpaths the LCC had a legal obligation to maintain them so prioritising them should not be an issue.
No new planning applications were to hand and no new planning decisions had been made.
The organisers of the recent Ironman event had agreed to meet with the Parish Council to discuss the event and to look at next years event
The Council had not received any comments regarding the recent Beer Festival. The organisers had taken onboard the Council's comments and suggestion from last year.
The Council accepted an invitation from St.James Church to lay a wreath at the Rembrance Service.
Please view the draft minutes for a full report on the meeting.
