Aveland Neighbourhood Plan

We are currently in the process of rejuvenating the Aveland Neighbourhood Plan as we are keen to influence and shape future developments in our communities. As part of the work we need to undertake a Neighbourhood Profile. The profile will involve the identification of areas, buildings, features, views, and building styles whose character we wish to protect. This will be carried out for Rippingale and the immediate surrounding countryside and requires the knowledge and opinions of village residents. We need small teams to collect and collate the information required for the report. The composition of each team should be representative of different areas of the village. We will therefore hold a meeting in Rippingale Parish church on 17th November 2018 at 10.00 to undertake this task. A full briefing on the areas to be covered will be given. This will also involve village walks to survey the areas to be assessed. It is anticipated that this task will take four hours. If you can assist in anyway, please try to attend that meeting. If you are unable to attend but wish to assist in the process to complete the Neighbourhood Plan, please contact Mike Hallas Project Manager on 01778 440804 or the Chairman Chris Charlton on 07908 540683. He and I can also be contacted with any queries.

Jubilee Playing Field Play Equipment Update

To maximise what can be achieved and minimise the financial impact on the Parish, the Council is applying for Grant Funding from a number of sources. Cllr Parry is still sourcing quotes on the equipment requirement from a number of different companies but to give you an idea of what we would like to achieve, some example layouts are attached. Please remember that these are just examples, based on the requirement compiled from residents’ surveyed responses, not all of this may be possible due to costs; the items and layout may change.
