News From Parish Council Meeting, 26th October
Posted: Oct 30, 2017

Planning Application 17/01890/FUL Land to the rear of the Red Lion Pub for a change of use to 2 Gypsy pitches together with utility buildings and amenities... 50 or so parishioners attended the Parish Council (PC) meeting to express concerns over this planning application. The PC requested and has been granted a further month to provide Newark & Sherwood District Council (NSDC) with their comments. I can now confirm that all parishioners now also have until 23rd November 2017 to provide NSDC with their comments, and all parishioners are encouraged to either send comments of acceptance or objection to NSDC. To validate any objections the PC have been asked to provide parishioners with planning policy information to include in emails or letters. A village email, with this information, is planned to be sent on 31st Oct.

Speeding… following many complaints to the PC regarding cars speeding on Beck St it was agreed to spend £89.94 on 30mph wheelie bin stickers. There is evidence that this type of regime has worked elsewhere. If we find that this works on Beck St then it may be extended to other areas of the village. We are also liaising with local businesses/organisations whose employees use Beck Street rather than Station Road to access A612. 

Environment… the Autumn Village clean up took place on 14th October. Lots of parishioners turned out to take time to tend to our lovely village. Volunteers took part in litter picking, cleaning road signs, cleaning the war memorial and tending to the green areas of the village. Thanks to all of you who took part.

Environment… I’m delighted to report that Cllr Denise Bryant has secured full sponsorship of a 3m living Christmas Tree which will be planted in Corner Croft in early November. The tree has been organised in conjunction with Newark and Sherwood Homes and has been donated by Mitie who have funded the tree and will plant it.

We aim to have a planting ceremony in mid November.  This will be followed by an inaugural Christmas Light Switch-On with Christmas Carols and mulled wine in December.  All dates to be announced when we have the tree planted.

Remembrance Sunday… the Parish Council has purchased 10 large poppies which you will see around the village to mark Remembrance Sunday.

Date of Next Meeting...The next meeting of Thurgarton Parish Council will be on Thursday, 23rd November at 7.30 pm in the Methodist Chapel.

Thurgarton Emergency Plan update
Posted: Mar 8, 2017

Councillor Natalie Robinson launched a refresh of the Thurgarton Emergency Plan (TEP) with a kick-off meeting on 28th February attended by TEP Area Co-ordinators and Deputies.

The purpose of the meeting was to run through the roles, responsibilities of the Co-ordinators, walk through the emergency process and discuss what else we needed to do to improve the plan.

There was great engagement and participation with a number of ideas put forward including the importance of communication and how we ensure the rest of the village are kept informed of the Plan.
