Summary of Minutes - Monday 6th June 2011

Central Bedfordshire

Michelle Flynn, the Rights of Way Officer (Central South) for Central Bedfordshire Council (CBC) attended the meeting. She went through the current CBC procedures for the seasonal contracts for Rights of Way within the area and asked if the Parish Council wished to have more involvement within the scheduling/cutting of the rights of way. The Parish Council agreed to look at this in more detail and asked for further information on CBCs current costs/schedules for this area. The Parish Council also raised concerns regarding the general grass cutting within the parish and asked if the relevant section at CBC could contact the Parish Council to discuss further.

Ward Cllr. Marion Mustoe attended the meeting who confirmed that the Paddocks planning application would be going to committee on the 22nd June next. The Parish Council requested that a site visit be made to this location due to a number of concerns. The Parish Council were updated on the current situation on the potential development in Bower Lane and were informed that the inspector report for Central Beds (South) has been challenged as to the content of the strategy; therefore the core strategy covering development within this region of Central Beds has potentially been moved back to 2012-2013. Cllr Mustoe confirmed that the Bedfordshire Music Centres are to remain, full details to be published on the parish website.
