A vacancy has arisen for the position of Parish Councillor for Bigbury. Please see the formal Notice:-
Intending applicants should note the following:-
1) Applicants have to be eligible – i.e. be on the electoral register in the Parish or in very exceptional circumstances live close to (but outside) the Parish Boundary.
2) Applicants need to be aware of the requirement to attend meetings – and the consequence of not doing so.
This has been a factor in three of the last four changes.
3) Applications need to be submitted in writing to Clerk – email@example.com
4) Applications should include details of any prior experience and personal interests (preferably relevant to the community) BUT most importantly some statements about how they will add value to the Council and by default the Community.
The Clerk will schedule ‘interviews’ for potential candidates ahead of the February PC meeting.
The version of the NP that will be the subject of a parish referendum, early in the New Year, is now available for scrutiny in the DOCUMENTS section of the NP area on this website. The referendum will be the final stage of the passage of the NP through the planning system.
Three proposal maps associated with the Plan are included here at higher resolution than in the Referendum document. Click on the maps and enlarge at will.
Having been passed (and lavishly praised) by the external Inspector, the NP already carries considerable weight for planning purposes and, of course, was prepared on behalf of Bigbury Parish Council.
The Agenda is available in the DOCUMENTS section of the Parish Council area of this website.
The Parish Council and Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group are pleased to be able to report that the planning application for the community-led housing scheme proposed on land at Holwell Farm, St Ann’s Chapel was approved, subject to the completion of a Section 106 Agreement, by the South Hams District Council Development Management Committee on 22nd May 2019 (Application Ref: 4214/18/FUL). This was given unanimous support by Members of the Committee who considered that the proposed development was an excellent example of a development designed specifically to meet the local housing needs of a rural parish and comprised a scheme of a very high standard of design and sustainability.
Cllr Valerie Scott, Chair of the NP Steering Group, has provided an overview of the review of the planning application by SHDC, a site map and several drawings of the scheme’s appearance (‘Perspectives’) in the DOCUMENTS section of the NP section of this website: >NP>DOCUMENTS>select file of interest by CATEGORY or title.
