Cowbit Village Website - LAST UPDATE 9th Feb 2019
At the well attended Parish Council meeting held on 14 th January, discussions had taken place over the certain planning applications within the village and the S106 monies for education allocated to Weston Hills school and NOT Cowbit village school. All attending Parish-District-County Councillors had all raised their sincere objections to this and all said they will endeavour to get try their best to get this changed so that Cowbit school will receive financial aid. There are currently spaces available at the village school which seems to have gone unnoticed at County level but what County have said is that they have ‘no intention of closing down Cowbit village school’. We will keep you all informed as this goes on.
Parish Councillors have suggested that they hold a ‘welcome to the village meeting’ for all existing and new residents and those due to move in. The date for your diary is 18 th March between 4-8pm in the village hall giving all residents old and new the opportunity to come and meet everyone. Refreshments will be available. For those who have a group/activity/business in the village, please contact the Parish Clerk to book a space. This is an ideal showcase for all village groups, activities and businesses. Cowbit village only.
The Parish Church has expressed concerns that looking to the future the cemetery is almost full, with limited spaces available. With this note, the Parish Council has been able to seek out a large area of land suitable for a new village cemetery. All they are waiting for is the price of the land and the agreement of the land owner. Once this has been done, the Parish Council will then seek to consult with villagers as to how they can raise the money to buy this area of land.
The playing field is having work done to the ground surface for added safety under the swings. Also, monies that were generously given by Ashwood Homes have been utilised to purchase a large piece
of play equipment suitable for 5 years and upwards. This is due to be fitted soon. The goal posts are being removed and replaced by a set of 5 a-side goal posts as the football pitch wasn’t being
used. The long term plan for the playing field is to turn it into a park area for leisure use. It had been reported that quad bikes had been riding around the
field, vehicles/bikes or any description are NOT allowed on the playing field.
Complaints had been received regarding potholes, there is a ‘phone app’ called ‘Fix My Street’ that you can download and report this direct. The Parish Council carries no weight when reporting any
road works/lights out etc and we encourage resident to report these direct.
