The 2016/2017 financial year has drawn to a close and the audit process is looming. Information will be published on the website in due course.

Parish Council Meeting held on 13th March 2017: Planning

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 18:57 by Trevor Davies

The Parish Council is a statutory consultee for planning matters and considered the planning application for the 'erection of new play equipment and refurbishment of existing play area and Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) to include the replacement of the existing 3m high fencing at Croughton Village Hall'. This proposal was given the full support of the Parish Council.

The Parish Council wishes Kerry and the team every success and will be considering a request for funding at its next Meeting.

Policy Review:

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 18:55 by Trevor Davies

The Parish Council sets out its objectives in its Annual Action Plan and reviews its policies on an ongoing and cyclical, but not necessarily annual, basis. The Parish Council endorsed its current Statement on Community Giving. 'In general the Parish Council does not make donations to charities. However, if a cause or project is identified which would enhance the quality of Croughton village life and the wellbeing of our residents, Croughton Parish Council is open to the possibility of giving support or receiving a proposal for funding from any community group.'

This timely review coincided with a request for a donation towards the Croughton Play Park Project. The Parish Council agreed to pledge the sum of £1,000 during the current 2017/2018 financial year. Although this is only a fraction of the anticipated total cost of the project it does represent a significant contribution from the Parish Council. The Parish Council had included one fifth of this amount specifically for the Play Park Project in its budget for 2017/2018 and so the remaining £800 will be drawn from General Reserves. » Less

Croughton Annual Parish Assembly

The Annual Parish Assembly will take place at 7.30 p.m. on Monday 24th April 2017 in the Parish Room, Croughton Village Hall.

All electors of the parish of Croughton are invited to attend.

Chairman, Cllr Penny Forbes will present her Annual Report for the year 2016/2017 and there will be an opportunity for questions from the floor.

District Cllr John Townsend, SNC and County Cllr Ron Sawbridge MBE, NCC will report to the Assembly. It will be the last Assembly for Cllr Sawbridge as he is not standing for election in May.

We also look forward to receiving reports from the School, the Base, the Poor's Allotment Trust and the Church as well as hearing from our Footpaths Warden, the Editor of Croughton News, our Portway Pocket Park representative and others who are very active within the village community.

It promises to be an interesting and informative evening, and a must for everyone living and working in Croughton.

The Agenda has yet to be finalised and will be published in April.
