OPEN CONSULTATION MEETING
Tuesday 10th December 2019 at 7.30pm in the Allardice Hall, Parkham
The Parish has been gifted an area of Public Open Space as a condition of the planning permission for the Hawkcan View Development.
It has been agreed that the Allardice Hall Committee will lease this land from the Parkham Parish Council in order to manage it on behalf of the Parish. The Trustees are now inviting you to come to an open meeting to discuss how we could develop the area to the best advantage for the whole community.
This is a really exciting opportunity for the Parish and we hope you will come along and contribute your ideas.
There is a plan showing the extent of the land on the reverse side of this invitation.
If you are unable to attend or would prefer to make your suggestion less publicly then please feel free to speak to one of the following Hall Trustees prior to the meeting: -
Parish council meeting in brief
Notes from Parkham Parish Couin the Allardice Hall.ncil Meeting held on Monday, 14 October 2019
Present: Cllrs Bridger (Chairman), Brooke, Dack, Heywood, Lang, Slee, Stevens, Wileman.County Cllr Inch. 3 members of the public.
The Chairman spoke about the standard of conduct where at the previous meeting it was below standard of what is expected.
Parishioners will be aware that work has started on the site to the south of the village hall and that foundations for some homes are complete and that one home is well advanced . The aerial photograph shows the extent of the development.
Pearce Homes will build 14 homes of which two will be available for local people to purchase at 70% of market value, future sale of the properties will be subject to the same criteria.
A further home will be sold to a housing association and will be available for rent at social rent level. A number of local people expressed an interest in these discounted homes some time ago when Pearce Homes and the Parish Council were establishing need at the planning stage.
If still interested those people may wish to register as a user on https://www.helptobuysw.org.uk
for the discounted homes or https://www.devonhomechoice.com for the rental home where these homes will be advertised when the homes are complete.
When the project is complete an area of land adjacent to the village hall will be transferred to the village along with a sum of money to be used on the development of the area for recreational and social use. This land will be known as a public open space. This land will be owned by the Parish Council but let to the Allardice Hall trustees who will manage it on behalf of the community.
During the next few months it is the intention of the trustees to call a meeting of local people to consult on the best way this land may be used. (There are of course strict rules over what can and cannot be done with a public open space)
On looking at the aerial photograph the land in question can be seen clearly, it is adjacent to the hall and is the area that is being used by the builders for their temporary buildings and storage of materials.
