Minutes December 2015

MINUTES OF A MEETING OF OULTON PARISH COUNCIL held on Tuesday 1st December 2015
1. Present: Mr. P. Killingback, Mr. G. Peck, Ms. S. Harrison, Mr. A. Nash, Mrs. S. Mather, Ms. N. Poole, Ms. A. Shaw
2. Declarations of Interest: There were no declarations of interest.
3. Minutes: The minutes of the meeting held on the 20th October were approved
and signed.
4. Matters Arising: (i) Planning Application 20151443 Application for the variation of Condition 2 of Planning Permission 20080187 – Change of Use of Existing Building to Holiday Accommodation and Associated Alterations: This has now been agreed by BDC. The Parish Council was disappointed that the issues it and the neighbours had raised with BDC had not been taken into account.
(ii) The appeal against the AD at Aylsham has been successful. The PC felt that the Inspector’s reasons for agreeing to the development had not taken any account of the real issues and the construction and suture operation of the plant will have a major effect on Aylsham and the surrounding roads.
(iii) Playground Maintenance: Mr. Nash had this in hand.
5. Financial Matters: One cheque was signed to Paul Killingback who paid for the wreath for Remembrance Sunday on behalf of the PC at a cost of £25.00
A paper from the NALC regarding the changes to the audit process was discussed. The Chair was concerned that the costs of the new audit regulations are not clear and it was agreed that the Parish Council should put an estimated figure of £100 in the budget. It was agreed that in view of the lack of information on the potential costs of being automatically forced into the new arrangements, the PC should consider opting out of using the NALC panel of accountants and use a qualified accountant of our own choosing. The Clerk would consult other parish councils. A final decision would be made at the next meeting.
The budget for the financial year 2015/16 was agreed based on the current information but a decision would be made at the next meeting regarding the precept, although the feeling was that it should remain at £2,300.00
6. Transparency Code: It would appear that this Parish Council followed all the rules in the new Transparency Code. Ms. Poole who operates the website for the Parish will set up a separate Gmail account for parish council matters and ensure the agendas and minutes are published within the statutory time set in the Code.
7. Any Other Business: It was noted that the signage for the construction traffic to get to the solar farm site was incomplete. The Chairman would contact the firm to
ensure signage is clear.
8. Date of the next meeting: This will be held on the 26th January.

SS Peter & Paul News

We now have confirmed our phase two application, which is the material request for the money to do the repair work.

Our application finally was for a grant of £104, 200, which represents 76% of the project costs of £137,664 for phase 2.

The gap will be filled by reclaiming the VAT on the building work (which is done under the Listed Places of Worship Scheme) and our own fund raising, which to date is as follows:

Norfolk Churches Trust £5,000 (this is the charity that shares the money raised from the annual church bike ride)
Weston Foundation £5,000
AllChurchesTrust £1,750

Our Oulton Church Tower Fund has used some it’s resources in funding our phase 1 (lots of architect’s bills !), but has been replenished by the most fabulous kindness and hard work of you all, namely:

The door to door letter raised individual donations of in excess of £1,000 (and some people have very kindly signed up for regular giving which is hugely appreciated)

Hall Open Day £250
Chapel Craft Fair £375
Open gardens £800
Jazz in the yard & Art Exhibition & Yoga donations also £450

A part of the commitment we have to make to the HLF is that we will deliver, in addition to the walks display board, two further historical displays, which the Oulton History Society will take forward. Do join in these projects ! The first will record those that served in The Great War from Oulton (taking forward the names from the boards in the Chapel) and the second, as prefigured in emails before, will track the involvement of the village and the Airfield in the Second World War.

Solarcentury email correspondence 9th & 10th November 2015

Dear Residents,

Please see email string below, initiated by Solarcentury on 9th November, in which Ed Perrin  seeks to outline the likely course of the construction of Phase 1 of the solar farm.

As you will see,  the Parish Council sought further clarification and Solarcentury’s  response appears at the end.

Regards,

Paul Killingback

Chair, 
Oulton Parish Council

__________________________________________

9th November 2015

Dear Paul,
 
I wanted to contact you to let you know the timescales for development of Phase 1 of Oulton Airfield Solar Farm so you can disseminate this to residents.
 
At present, we are aiming to commence on site on 26th November.  Usually the first week will just be setting up the compound and marking out the site so we do not expect construction activity in the main to commence until the following week.
 
The large majority of deliveries to the site will be within the first few weeks of December and all deliveries will use the strict haul routes committed to within our construction traffic management plan coming south along The Street from the B1149.  Signs will be deployed at the site entrance to ensure all vehicles do not continue forward into Oulton Street.
 
In terms of the construction duration, the site will be fully constructed by week commencing 18th January where we have a committed connection date with UK Power Networks.
 
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact myself or my colleague Oli (copied) in the first instance.  We will in turn pass your message on to the project manager.
 
In turn, we will do our best to keep you informed throughout construction of any important milestones to ensure that you are fully abreast of information if asked by local residents.
 
Kind regards
Ed Perrin

Subject: Re: Oulton Airfield – Phase 1 construction
 
Hi Ed,
 
Just considered your message in a bit more detail and I have a few points to make.
 
 
1. Think that you meant that the construction traffic will travel northwards from the B1149 and be prevented from going past the site entrance into The Street?
 
2. Your construction period is very tight. Please confirm what allowance for working has been made for the Christmas and New Year period. Normally I would expect construction sites to close for 2 weeks at this time. If this is not to be the case here I would wish to inform the residents of this. 
 
3. Regarding the construction plans and the Christmas period I think it would be appropriate, as a matter of courtesy, for you to directly contact the nearest affected resident (Railway Gatehouse) to confirm your plans. 
 
As the work will involve an element of piling to construct the frames I am concerned that any noise is kept to a minimum during the festive period. If working during the Christmas period is part of your plan then it will give the occupants of Railway Gatehouse an opportunity to make other arrangements.

Please let me have your comments,
 
Regards
 
Paul Killingback
Oulton Parish Council

Subject: RE: Oulton Airfield – Phase 1 construction

Good morning Paul,
 
In response:
 
1)      Correct, apologies I meant traffic will come from the south.  No vehicles will pass through Oulton Street;
2)      A condition of our consent is that there will be no working on Sundays or public holidays.  However, outwith this, we will continue to work through the Christmas period in order to meet our connection dates.  Once the piling is completed, the main activity will be the erection of the framework structure.  This requires hand tools only so noise from the site will be limited to the movement of plant after piling has been completed;
3)      We are arranging for a letter to be sent to the occupants of the Railway Gatehouse to outline construction timescales and to provide a point of contact throughout the build.  As I’ve outlined above, we anticipate that any noisy works will be over by Christmas.  However, if there is any slip in our programme, we will of course make sure they are fully informed.
 
Kind regards
Ed Perrin
