The agenda for the Annual Parish Meeting, which will be held on Monday 26th March 2018 in the Education Suite of the Stonehenge Visitor’s Centre can be found here.
The Annual Parish Meeting, which has to be held between March and June, is normally the one opportunity during the year when we can all discuss issues of interest to the electors of the parish. At Parish Council meetings, the legal format is such that parishioners can raise questions, but debate and discussion isn’t entered into.
Clearly, with the A303 Stonehenge Scheme Public Consultation coming to an end in early April, we felt it essential to hold the Annual Parish Meeting in the same time period, to allow you all to discuss your views in public and give the Parish Council a better idea of the collective views and concerns of the village. These will be reflected in the formal response the Parish Council makes to the consultation process. We hope you have either already taken the opportunity to go and see one of the Highways England presentations on their plans, or plan to do so over the next few weeks, and will come to the meeting armed with points and ideas that will minimise the impact of the scheme on the village and villagers:
- between now and the start of construction;
- during the construction process;
- following completion of the scheme.
The meeting will start with a 20 minute presentation by Highways England to set the scene, followed by the Chairman highlighting any issues relating to the scheme (and there are several) that have already been brought to our attention and that will be referred to in the Parish Council response.
From that point onwards, the meeting will be opened up to Electors of the parish. We hope you will come along and participate. We hope it may help you identify issues that you want to raise with Highways England yourselves in your own responses to the statutory consultation.
The March meeting of the Parish Council will follow the Annual Meeting of the Parish.
