Parish Council News for June 2019

Community Grants Money:

Beckington Parish Council is delighted to confirm that it has just awarded the Network magazine a community grant of £50 to help towards it costs.

The Parish Council is also keen to invite other local organisations to apply to its community grants pot. The Council has a set aside pot of money for the benefit of local groups, the application form can be download from the Parish Councils website, it is not overly burdensome.

Planning Application Process:

The Parish Council has over the last year streamlined how it responds to many of the Planning and Tree works applications it receives from Mendip District Council. Not every application goes before the Council at a formal meeting (often the deadline for response to the application is before the next scheduled meeting anyway). It is important that if you wish to make a comment to the Parish Council with regards to any application that you contact the Planning & Development Portfolio Holder (All contact details are on the Parish Council website) as soon as you become aware of the application.

It is worth noting that it is Mendip District Council who are the Planning authority and so have the power to determine applications, not the Parish Council, residents should make formal approach to them as well.

Local Council Award Scheme:

The Council has resolved to register for this scheme and work towards foundation level. Fewer than 20% of the Town / Parish Councils in Somerset have achieved this, so it would be setting a good standard if the Parish Council was to be awarded it.

Facebook Page and contacting the Council:

You can now ‘like' the Parish Councils Facebook page. This page will carry the latest news from the Parish Council. Full contact details for all Parish, District and County Council Members can be found on the Parish Council website www.beckingtonparishcouncil.org.uk
