Parish Council Notes – April 2011 

6.68.24.D.COU Change of use of land from agricultural field to form extended playground at the Sports Field, High Peter Lane, Burton Leonard.
Initially the play area will be grassed and once ownership of the land and funding is through equipment will be added.  Issues regarding the existing septic tank were raised.  The ongoing maintenance of the playground was discussed.  Cllrs agreed to support the application and also write to the Sports Field Trust requesting that the playground is kept tidy and that the grass, fence and hedge are regularly maintained. 

High Green Grass Cutting & Burton Leonard School
A meeting was held with the school on Tuesday 1st March, further discussion took place and options were identified.  The school seem to have a greater understanding of the issues and have received legal advice.  We are now waiting to hear back from the school for further progression. 

Litter pick
A Sponsored litter pick will take place on Sunday 3rd April by Sam and Max Crompton who are raising money for their world challenge trip to Cambodia and Vietnam in July 2012, during which they will be spending a week doing charity work in an orphanage or school.  If you would like to sponsor them there is a sponsor form at the shop.  This is taking place instead of the annual parish council litter pick which may be rescheduled if necessary. 

Next meeting
The next meeting will be held in St Leonard’s Hall on Monday 4th April 2011 at 7:30pm, members of the public are invited to raise their concerns and observe the business of the meeting.

 The Chairman is Mark Snowdon
The Clerk is Rebecca Coates, 3 Burnett Close, 677963,
