Completed to date

Below we list the actions completed on our initiatives.

Village Design Statement

The revised Village Design Statement has now been published and is avaiable on this website.

The full document is very large containing a number of maps and photographs.  There is a smaller 'Text only' version of the document with the maps and photographs omitted.

Roadside Kerbs

Earlier in the year kerbs were installed along a number of roads in the village.  While protecting the verges they have also contributed to a notable reduction in speed as it is more  difficult for vehicles to pass side by side.

Sparsholt College Planning Applications

Having considered the extensive range of documents forming the planning application for a 74m wind turbine on the college site  and discussing with several parishioners, the Parish Council decided to submit an objection based primarily on the lack of consultation and the damage to the local landscape.  Details of the objection were circulated by email to as many parisioners as we could.  As a result a large number of objections were registered.

The Parish Council's letter of objection can be found here (link to be provided).
