Parish Council Chat

I’m writing this on the longest day with the sun streaming through the

window; long may it continue!

There’s been quite a lot going on for the Parish Council in the last month.

The main issue was the Planning Committee Meeting to consider the

proposed development on Burrough Road, Somerby. Our primary reason for

opposing this was that we really do not need three large developments in

Somerby. The outline application for Oakham Road was passed on appeal,

and we expect further information on the Play Area later in July. Burrough

Road is only a reserve site in the Melton Plan and we opposed it. I am

pleased to report that the Committee agreed unanimously and the

application was refused.

There’s also, sadly, been a continuation of thefts of lead from church roofs;

Burrough has been hit twice in a short period and there have been a number

of other local churches hit. The diocese has agreed that these do not need to

be replaced with lead but probably stainless steel, which should stop the

problem, but meanwhile there are still quite a number of roofs at risk.

There’s also the enormous cost of repair and I hope you can all help with the

fundraising efforts of the churches affected. Also, please keep your eyes

open for any suspicious vans etc.

On a more positive note I hope you will notice how the Horse Pond is

developing. Chris Fisher and his team are making great improvements and

it’s beginning to look like a real nature reserve after so many years of being

an eyesore. If you haven’t seen it why not go and look?

There are number of highways issues which we are following up; Leesthorpe

Bridge, drains on the Somerby-Pickwell road and areas of Somerby High

Street which flood to name but a few. With the reduction in County Council

budgets, it’s always going to be a battle to get all we want done – but we

soldier on!

This will be the last Towards until September so I hope you all have a good

summer and that the weather is kind to us

Neil Stothers as Priest in Charge (Rector Designate),

Burrough Hill Benefice, & The Revd Sarah Wright as Associate

Loughborough, The Rt Revd Dr. Guli Francis-Dehqani and The

Archdeacon of Leicester, the Venerable Tim Stratford,

pictured above with Church Wardens, Martin Watts &

Dorothy Edwards, representing both benefices. After the

service, refreshments were served in the Memorial Hall.

SOMERBY PRIMARY SCHOOL

It is hard to take in that the academic year is drawing to a close! It has been a

very full on experience, and on a personal note, Somerby have made me feel

truly welcome into this community.

It is always difficult at this time of year when we think about moving on. Our

four Year 6 pupils have given their all this year and throughout their time at

Somerby Primary. We wish Hannah, Francesca, Reg and Jack all the very best

in the move to Secondary schools across the area. I know they will thrive and

flourish through the support and grounding they have received here and look

forward to hearing of their progress.

We had a great residential trip to Conisbrough in South Yorkshire for three

days. Everyone was challenged, including myself and Mrs Moulds, to

complete some of the activities such as abseiling, canoeing and the leap of

faith. A superb time was had by all and it has certainly helped with risk taking

within the classroom…maths will never be the same again!!

Our thematic study on ‘The Temperature

is Rising’ allowed us to have an African

Day in June. We all took part in

drumming sessions and created some

African artwork. I am sure you could hear

the sounds coming from the Village Hall

at the other end of the Village. It was a

wonderful day that enhanced the

learning and enjoyment of this theme. As

You will have read the many columns of

print regarding the Melton Local Plan.

While this is not entirely adopted, there

are large parts which now carry

significant weight and planners need to

consider these when reaching their

decisions.

The Council heard the application for

30+ houses on land on Burrough Road and, due to it being a Reserve

Site in the Local Plan, decided to refuse the application. As a

Councillor my role is to be your strong voice on the Council. At the

meeting I did say it was extremely important to take local people’s

concerns into account. On the night the developer suggested that he

only wanted ten houses. However if applications for ten houses come

in then our community cannot extract any funding for play equipment,

schools, village amenities and much needed starter homes unless by

prior agreement. Needless to say, as your Ward Councillor, I had no

time to take your views into account on this change. I felt it did not

offer significant benefits to the village, or Ward, in exchange for

housing and, in my view, this tips the balance against permitting

development. If we just have large houses then people cannot

downsize or get on the ladder – which doesn’t help those wanting to

stay in our villages and support a vibrant community. Your Local Plan

identifies where allocated growth will go and leaves protections on

where we would not want to see growth. The message is clear to

developers: now Melton Local Plan is in place you need to work with

the local community.
