Recent news

Derek Cooke – it is with great sadness that we announce that Derek Cooke died on 1st November. Derek served on the Parish Council for very many years and has made an invaluable contribution over that time. He will be greatly missed by the Parish Council and many other people here in Allensmore.

As is required in these circumstances, a Notice of Vacancy has been posted, see here. The notice describes that an election to this post may be held if ten or more electors from the parish make a request in writing before 18th December 2020. If that doesn’t happen the Parish Council will co-opt to the post. See the notice for more details.

Parish Council: The next parish Council meeting will be taking place online only using Zoom at 7.30 on Thursday 21st January 2021. The agenda and details of how to participate will follow. The minutes of the previous meeting held on 17th September 2020 can be seen here.

Neighbourhood Development Plan: Having completed all the consultation stages and the statutory Examination the NDP is awaiting the final referendum. Due to the Coronavirus situation, these have been postponed and it is scheduled to take place on 6th May 2021 unless current legislation is changed. For this reason there are currently no further meetings of the NDP steering group scheduled. If you wish to contact a member of the steering group, please email NDP@allensmore.org.uk.

Fastershire have approved revised plans with its contractor Gigaclear to install fibre direct to the premises. For the properties here that have not been covered by the previous stages (i.e. Church Road, Green farm Lane and part of the A465) the network build was due to start in Q4 2019. As yet, it is unclear exactly when the service will be available, but should be before Q1 2021 latest. For more details, see Broadband.
