- Reports from outside bodies
Cllr Palmer asked what was happening with the WDBC election for Burrator Ward.
Sadly, one of the candidates has died and therefore the election will be postponed as per the relevant legislation. That does mean that Burrator Ward will be without a borough councillor until the election is rescheduled.
As an update the election has now been set for the 15th June.
- Parish Property
- Highway matters
The highlighted issues are currently with the highways officer, the clerk will make contact with regard to any updates.
The clerk should receive correspondence from Nick Shutt regarding left over funds from the Warm Home events.
- Urgent additional business, by leave of The Chair
The chair raised the issue of Snow Wardens, there have been a few volunteers that have come forward, which is much appreciated.
The clerk raised an issue with regard to the date of the annual parish meeting. Unfortunately, one Cllr did not get the election paperwork in on time and would like to be co-opted as early as possible to enable them to stand as a parish representative for DNPA. This would require the APM being held on Tuesday 9th May, the meeting would be kept to the required items for the APM.
The Meeting was closed at 20.46
