11/5/17: Playgrounds - There had been some response from parents to the posting on the website of the three different proposals for the Abinger Common playground refurbishment. The Clerk said he was keen to bring an end to the process and the next step was to make a grant application to The London Marathon Trust.


12/5/17: Neighbourhood Plan - The Clerk said he had approached Guy Davies, Planning Policy Officer for MVDC, who is willing to speak to the Parish Council about the process involved in drawing up a Neighbourhood Plan.
Action: The Clerk will circulate Councillors as to which dates were appropriate to hold the public meeting.


13/5/17: Byelaws - RF said he had heard back from the Department of Communities and Local Government who informed him that consideration of the PC’s revised byelaws would be finalised after the General Election.


14/5/17: Abinger Hammer TV programme - The Clerk explained that the Parish Council had been approached to enter Abinger Hammer for a new TV programme aimed at finding ‘Britain’s Best Village’.
