Minutes 08/06/2011

An extraordinary meeting of the parish council was held on Wednesday 8 June 2011 at Diddlebury Village Hall. 

Present:  Councillors Hedgley, Bellamy, Mrs Fowler, Longmore, Povall and Mrs Worthington. Also present were the Head and Chair of Governors of Corvedale School and three members of the public.

Apologies had been received from Councillors Thomas and Mrs Husband.

Councillor Mrs Fowler declared an interest in matters described in paras 1 and 2 below.


Planning – Corvedale CofE Primary School

1           The chairman introduced this item and said that it was important enough to warrant an extraordinary meeting. There was then a discussion, in which members of the public also participated, and the Chair of Governors and Head answered questions. There was general support for the scheme although the fact that it would involve the demolition of the former School House was regretted. Most accepted, however, that the house could not realistically be preserved or altered and that a scheme such as the one proposed was the only real option. It was suggested that there could be some sort of physical record of the School House in the new building eg an outline of the footprint of the house. Members would also like to see the school investing in a pictorial and memories record of the house in relation to its life as part of the school.


2           The chairman asked members whether they would support a proposal that there be no objection to the application subject to the recommendation about the physical record mentioned above. Four were in favour and one against; Councillor Mrs Fowler  abstained. The clerk was instructed to report to Shropshire Council accordingly (AP – clerk).


Bank Account

3           The clerk explained that signatories for the bank account were normally the chair, deputy chair and one other named councillor (any two to sign).


4           Accordingly, members agreed that Councillors Hedgley and Mrs Husband (Chair and vice-Chair) should be signatories. Councillor Thomas, who was already a signatory, had told the clerk that he was prepared to continue as a signatory and members approved this also. The clerk will put the necessary arrangements in hand (AP – clerk).



As there was no other business the chairman declared the meeting closed at 8 10pm.
