Seamer Parish Council update

The July meeting began with an Open Forum, attended by four members of the community. Planning applications were discussed, including those current, pending and granted. Village maintenance issues were discussed, including reeds and the pond, footpaths within the parish, tree maintenance and watering of tubs. It was noted that the village environment had been further enhanced by the new benches and noticeboards; Philip Wood was thanked for his hard work in installing these. Similarly, the extra grass cut had proved beneficial to the village. Several articles from the Parish Council had been sent to the Grapevine for the August issue to keep residents fully informed regarding village matters. The Chair gave feedback on the recent nine CSW (Speed Watch) deployments. An application to the Community Fund for new Defibrillator pads had been approved and the items purchased. Councillor Paul Chapman reported back from the local Climate Change meeting. Councillor Mark Murphy reported back on the recent Village Hall Committee meeting with various items for action noted, progress on which will be reported at the next Parish Council meeting in September.
Minutes of this meeting are displayed on the noticeboards and on the website. An update from the September Parish Council meeting will appear in the next Grapevine. The next meeting of the Parish Council is on Tuesday 19th November, 2019. As always, residents are welcome to attend.
