LOCAL CRIME

There has been a couple of attempted break-ins in Aberford over recent weeks, underlining the ongoing message that property should be securely locked and valuables kept out of sight. Please be careful also when visiting the Village Shop. Allegedly, the odd car has been left running, while the owner just pops in for a paper…..


BUDGET 2015-2016

Discussion took place at the latest PC meeting around the next financial year’s budget. It was agreed to seek an increase in the precept that will result in an annual rise of £1.34 for a Band D property. The PC will continue to explore more cost effective ways of delivering its services; an example being the Xmas lights on Pump Hill, traditionally sourced from LCC, where we may be able to get better value elsewhere.


FUNDING FOR THE FUTURE

Tied in with the expenditure theme, the PC is responsible for a number of assets which will, as time passes, become life-expired. The Play Area is likely to be first on the list. It has been agreed to create a “Renewals Reserve” from existing funds to be utilised for this purpose in the future. We cannot assume that external grant funding will always be available to help us out, although it will be sought where possible.


GRIT BINS

Remember grit supplies are available for use on public footpaths and roads, but please use sparingly. A little goes a long way.


LCC CORE STRATEGY: HOUSING ALLOCATIONS

Aberford village has not been scheduled for any housing in the City Council’s core strategy. This does not mean, however, that there will be no further development. There is a long history of infill plots, changes of use, conversions, etc. etc. that has resulted in an increase in our housing stock, and we have no doubt that planning applications along these lines will continue.


DATE OF NEXT MEETING

This has been advanced, exceptionally, to Tuesday 10 February.
