· Draft National Planning Policy Framework – Core Strategy impacts
It was agreed to write to NSC making reference to the briefing submitted by CPRE, as the Council is a CPRE member.

· Brook House – proposed street name
It was agreed to write to NSC suggesting the development is named ‘Lawder’s Orchard’ in recognition of Michael Lawder and the contribution he made to the community and the fact that he bequeathed the site to the church. Furthermore, historical records have shown that an orchard has been present on the site for some considerable time.

· Enforcement Issues outstanding

Poultry House at South View Farm, Wrington Hill, Application - 07/P/0883/F
It was reported that a letter had been received from Dave Barrett, NSC Senior Enforcement Officer, stating that there was no obvious breach of conditions.

Plush Hotel
It was reported that Enforcement were investigating a new sign at the Plush Hotel, Redhill, in addition to the previously reported illuminated sign.

Nates Lane
It was reported that an advertising sign was obscuring driver sight lines at the junction with the A38. It was agreed that Cllrs Ledbury and Turton would check on this and report back.

Application - 11/P/1141/F – WVMP surgery in Pudding Pie Lane (Churchill Parish)
As it appeared there was some reluctance by residents to comment on this planning application and the proposed development, also that some were confused about how to comment, it was agreed to display a poster on the Village Association noticeboard giving details of how to comment. It was also agreed that this information should appear on the Wrington website with leaflets or a poster being placed in Amors shop.

The Meeting was closed at 7.15pm
