A meeting of Dunholme Parish Council took place on Wednesday 12th September. Seven Parish Councillors and 3 member of the public were in attendance.



Applications received

PL/0080/18 – Commercial Site A46 Junction – Development for the construction of a northern access and southern access into the commercial site at the junction of A46 / Lincoln Road.

138149 – 16 Wentworth Drive – Planning application for two storey side extension and single storey rear extension.


 Tennis Buddies

As many of you will have seen on your journeys in and out of the village, the new tennis academy dome has been erected, It hopefully, won’t be long until this great facility is opened and people in and around the village can dust off their tennis rackets and tennis shoes for a game or two.


 Village Play Areas

A substantial amount of work has taken place in Allwood Road and Kennington Close play areas to bring them up to higher standards.  This has been long awaited due to issues with obtaining parts with the contractor.  However, new baby swings have been installed, new metal plates to slides haven replaced old wooden rotten ones and gaps around the safety matting have been filled.  There is still more to do, and this should be done over the coming months.



Winter is on its way and whilst Councillors do walk around the village and notice what needs doing, not all the village is covered every day.  So, if you are about and notice something that needs attention, such as a blown down tree, or an empty grit bin then please let the Clerk know so that the relevant contractor can be called and the necessary work completed.



The planters will be getting professionally this year over the winter months and then again during spring.  The new tree for near the Church will also be planted over the next month now that the very very hot spell we have seen has finished.


 The Dunholme Distribution – E Shot

The Parish Council are always looking for ways of communicating with residents.  If this is something that you would be interested in receiving, please let the Clerk have your email address and it will be added to the distribution list.  Your email address will only be used by the Parish Council and will not be passed onto third parties.
