Pencombe Group Parish Council
Your Parish council = The closest tier of government to you – the voice of local people
!IMPORTANT VILLAGE MEETING!
You would like to have your say about how development in our villages happens. Right?
Well, you need to attend the village meeting on Monday 25th October 2021, starting 7pm in the Parish Hall.
The Group Parish Council will launch the Neighbourhood Development Plan for the Parishes and residents can have a strong influence on how future development in the villages happens. But to have that influence you need to be involved so please come along. (Hopefully will include tea & cake!)
Also on the agenda for the same evening is a discussion about possibly providing a village car park in Pencombe to deal with the traffic issues at school start and finish times and when the Hall holds events. The Parish Council will present some proposals and costings to residents who will then decide if the project should go ahead.
Here is a link to the flyer publicising the meeting which has been widely circulated around the Parishes and also on social media- Village meeting flyer v2
