* PARISH COUNCIL NOTICES *

 

A meeting of Dunholme Parish Council took place on Monday 4th October 2021. 

Live Advent Calendar

The Parish Council are once again looking for 24 residents to make a village house advent calendar.

You can choose a day of December as your advent calendar day – all you need to do is decorate a window in your house that can be viewed from a path or road.

It should include the number of your choice.

The street name will be advertised on the Facebook page and on a trail map for people to know where to look.

If you are interested in joining in, please contact the Clerk to register your interest.

The work for the mini-Christmas market is ongoing.

 

Dunholme Village Hall Area

We are looking at improving the area around the village hall in the coming year.  This is going to start off with brand new signs for the Village Hall.  At the minute the signage is minimal, and we are looking to purchase a sign that stands out. 

We are also looking into the purchase of a finger sign to advertise the football pitch, outdoor bowling green etc more.  They are well hidden behind the village hall and easily missed by people visiting the area.

Over the past couple of months, the Parish Council have also commissioned the village hall car park and Indoor Bowls Club car park to be relined, including specific disabled spaces to make it easier and clearer for visitors to use the halls.

There will be one way traffic restrictions and ramps put in place near the Indoor Bowls Club.

 

War Memorial

The war memorial needs some TLC – a specialist company have been asked to clean the war memorial in time for Remembrance Sunday.  It is a very delicate process to ensure that the memorial is not damaged.

 

Tree Replacement

We are aware that the tree outside of the Church has died and is looking very sorry for itself.  It is hoped that the tree will be replaced as soon as possible (when recommended), for its best chance of survival.  The tree surround will be reinstated as well.

The next meeting of Dunholme Parish Council will take place on Monday 1st November 2021 at 7.30pm in the Jubilee Room of the Village Hall.

Dunholme Neighbourhood Plan Review 

 

The current Neighbourhood Plan is now being reviewed due to changes in national and local legislation.


The review will largely focus on potential new locations for housing around the village.

 

Although we are not anticipating any large scale new development, it is important for us to look at any potential future locations and plan appropriately.

 

 The Parish Council are soon to distribute a public survey asking you about the type of housing needed in the future and the potential locations for these homes. 

 

There will also be some public consultation events over the next few months, so please stay up to date with progress by looking at the Parish Councils website.
