Local Ricky News – January 2021

The phone box in Church Street has now been fully restored and has noticeboards inside, so local organisations can display their news items to keep residents updated.

Batchworth Community Council is a statutory consultee in the planning application review process. Planning committee meetings are generally held every two weeks, with an agenda showing the applications to be considered, plus the Zoom log in details, on the Community Council website. Whilst Batchworth Community Council has no power to approve or reject planning decisions, it submits comments to the district council, based on ‘material considerations’, namely valid reasons in law, for the district council to consider when they take decisions on the outcome of planning applications. Members of the public are very welcome to attend the planning meetings.

Please take a minute to log onto the local Neighbourhood Plan website at https://batchworth.commonplace.is/ to comment on shaping the future of our local area. Please also sign up to be part of a local focus group to discuss this further, at https://www.batchworthplan.org.uk/focusandsteering-group.  If you have no internet access, or for more information, please ring 07939 986242.

Members of the public are very welcome to attend the Council’s Full Council, Planning and Finance Committee Meetings. Dates and agendas are on the Council’s website, with public participation sessions of 3 minutes per resident. Meetings are currently held remotely via Zoom, with log ins on the website.

The Councillors and Officers of Batchworth Community Council would like to take this opportunity to extend their best wishes to residents for 2021.
