Parish Council, past and future

As a former Parish Councillor I look forward to observing the activities of the 'now vibrant' Parish Council.

It is clear from the article on AudlemOnline last weekend that current Councillors believe that in the past the Parish Council has been generally inactive and lacking in energy. So it is amazing that this dozy lot managed to

  • - take over and refurbish the public toilets,
  • - produce the Neighbourhood Plan,
  • - defend Audlem against speculative planning applications
  • - purchase Turnpike Field so that it can be kept as green space for the community in perpetuity.

.....and still attend to all the day-to-day detail of Parish Council business

Astonishingly over many years they also managed to work with most village groups on a personal or formal basis (eg working closely with the APHAx project) and developed Community teams from as far back as 2017.

If this is what a non-vibrant Rip van Winkle Parish Council can achieve, what on earth can Audlem look forward to in this bright new future?

It's crunch time as the application to reinstate the paths to Adderley goes to the Planning Inspectorate.Two historic paths to Adderley from Bagley Lane were closed at the Shropshire border in the 1950's by the machinations of the owner of most of Adderley parish, Lord Corbet. "There are no public paths in Adderley." he was heard to say at the time. Finally, the official...
