Parish News - January 2013

Although the Parish Council did not have a meeting in December (and I am writing this before their January meeting), the Councillors met to discus the recent planning application which has been submitted by Northumberland Estates. This is for a development of 20 houses, including affordable housing, on a site to the north of Piper Road. They agreed to object to the application and a letter has been sent to the Planning Department at Northumberland County Council. We will have to await the outcome but it may be some time before we hear anything further.
May 2nd this year is the date for local elections. This includes County Council as well as Parish Council. The Reading Room has already been booked!
Moles have again appeared on the playing field and a mole catcher was duly summoned. Hopefully, this has cured the problem. The windows at the Pavilion should be replaced soon.
The February meeting is on the 21st at 7.15pm and that of March will also be the 21st. As ever, these are held in the Reading Room.

Margaret Davenport
Clerk to Ovingham Parish Council
