- NEIGHBOURHOOD DEVELOPMENT PLAN
In advance of the meeting, the Chairman had circulated the following drafts of the Neighbourhood Development Plan:-
- The Parish Today
The Committee considered the documents in some detail and made minor textual amendments which were noted by the Chairman.
The Secretary undertook to obtain the latest indices of social deprivation, which would be sent to the Chairman [paragraph 2.3 – Page 10 refers].
- RUGELEY POWER STATION – OUTLINE PLANNING PERMISSION
The Chairman reported that he had attended the exhibition held on 4th July 2019, at Mansfield House.
The Committee noted that the Chairman had spent some considerable time at the exhibition but he was not approached at any stage to give his opinion on the proposed development.
In what appeared to be a pre-prepared press release, the Chronicle had reported that local residents had given a ‘thumbs up’ to the proposals. In his capacity as Chairman of the Parish Council, Councillor TA Jones had written to the paper stating that it was not clear that the public did support the proposals. A copy of his letter had been published by the paper.
- DATE AND TIME OF NEXT MEETING
That the next meeting be held on Monday, 16th September 2019, at 8.15 p.m.
