Chairman’s Report, March 2018

Chairman’s Report

Litter Pick
Meet at Canon Pyon Parish Hall Car Park at 10 a.m. on Saturday 24th March. All equipment is provided. Pyons W.I. has kindly agreed to make hot drinks, soup and bread for everyone after the litter pick at the Parish Hall. I hope you can join us.

Dog Fouling
The group parish council would like to remind dog owners to pick up after their pets. Please note the following from Herefordshire Council’s website (www.herefordshire.gov.uk): “Dog poo is a health hazard, all dog owners have a legal duty to clean up after their dog. Failure to do so could result in a Dog Control Order with an £80 fixed penalty notice, or a maximum fine of £1000”.
There is an online form to report “dog poo” on Hereford Council’s website.

Planning
174768 Land adjacent to Brick House, Bush Bank. Application for removal of condition 1, following grant of planning application. The application is for permanent permission to site poly-tunnels after the end of a 5-year period of temporary permission.

The group parish council decided not to object, and asked the planning authority, Herefordshire Council, to include a condition to maintain the same ‘footprint’ that is used presently for polytunnels. In other words, there should not be any future expansion of the area used for polytunnels.

Harry Ray, Chairman,
Pyons Group Parish Council.
