To save residents having to trawl through the minutes of the latest parish council meeting, we thought it would be a good idea to summarise the latest work of the parish council to give residents a flavour of the work that goes on.
One of the major projects of the parish council over the winter has been the gritting trial. This has been well received in the community and it was agreed at the March meeting that the parish council would continue to fund this in the future.
As many of you know, Cllr Mike Wood has worked tirelessly on the broadband project and he is optimistic that Henbury will have full fibre broadband by the time of the next parish council meeting in May.
The major planning applications on Chelford Road continue to be a big focus for the council. A report into the peat situation was commissioned to be used as a supporting document in the comments of the parish council. 19/3097M and 19/3098M are to be heard at the strategic planning board meeting on 24th March so further updates will appear following this meeting.
Cheshire East are currently undertaking a Community Governance Review with a proposed boundary change to Henbury. Further information can be found on the Cheshire East website at https://www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/council_and_democracy/community-governance/community-governance-reviews.aspx
Members discussed the issue of dogs on the Millennium Green. We would be interested in residents' feedback as to whether a bigger, clearer sign would make a difference?
A tree surgeon is due to start work on the trees on Hightree Drive that have got out of hand in recent years. Effected residents have been informed of the necessary road closure to carry out the works.
Our next meeting is also the annual village meeting and all residents are welcome to join us. It will be held via Zoom on May 12th. I will put an agenda and further details out nearer the time.
And finally, if anybody would be interested in joining us on the council please get in touch with the clerk, Kate. The role of a councillor is really rewarding, and you will be part of vital work in your community.
Kate, the clerk, can be contacted at Henbury.firstname.lastname@example.org
