Playing Fields Committee meetings
Twice a year, the Parish Council meets with the Sports Clubs in each village to discuss how each is doing. This includes both Bowling Clubs, both Tennis Clubs, both Cricket Clubs and the Football Clubs in each village plus Scholes Scouts, Barwick Village Hall and Barwick Allotment holders representatives.
Standing orders are the rule book for Parish Councils. Like most other parishes, our standing orders are based on the template produced by the National Association of Local Councils.

Communication with Chartford Homes; Development Belle Vue Road
It has become apparent that there were several organisations and individuals communicating with the developers which was causing confusion. The intention is to have a clear line of communication between residents and Chartford Homes and it was agreed with Chartford Homes that they would communicate with the Parish Council.
Chartford Homes have agreed to send details of the Schedule of works when they have the details available.
To clarify the Parish Council Clerk is the main point of contact, and details will then be passed on to all Councillors.
This does not prevent you writing to them directly if you wish to do so, but it is easier if there is a single point of contact. Moreover, it is helpful if the PC can be kept updated, if you do write can you copy to the PC. This will help monitor any issues as they arise.
Please contact Stella Walsh directly if you wish.
