The next meeting of Baughurst Parish Council will be be held on Thursday 21 September 2017, 7.30 pm, Heath End Hall.
May we gently remind you of the need to NOT light fires in woodland, especially in these weather conditions? This followed illegal flytipping, and the culprits then set fire to it. Baughurst has been lucky to avoid a major fire - please do report any such instances to either the Police or Fire authorities, or to this Council.
Baughurst Community SpeedWatch was deployed on Thursday on the Baughurst Road along with PCSO Dullingham during morning rush hour. 1 8 speeders have been reported to the police for action.
In 90 minutes:
257 vehicles passed the team of which (in the direction we were recording):
47 were travelling in excess of the 30 mph limit (18%)
18+ were travelling at 35 or above of which two were incorrectly recorded therefore
18 reported to police for action (7% of all passing vehicles).

Following discussions between Hampshire County Council and West Berkshire Council we are now able to update you on the outcome.
Transitional resident permits will now be issued to all residents who live further than 10 miles away from a Hampshire Household Waste and Recycling Centre (HWRC). Those residents in North Hampshire who live within 10 miles of either Basingstoke or Andover HWRCs do not qualify, and will therefore not be sent a permit.
The permit will only allow for access to Newtown Road HWRC (and not the Padworth facility); Hampshire residents will not be allowed to use restricted vehicles and asbestos disposal is not permitted at Newtown Road. The nearest licenced facilities for asbestos are either Andover or Basingstoke HWRCs.
If you qualify for a permit, it will be sent to your home address from 20 December 2016 and will be available to use immediately.
Please see West Berkshire Council’s website for information on opening times, materials accepted and restrictions.http://info.westberks.gov.uk/CHttpHandler.ashx?id=42296&p=0
Rural high speed broadband
Following on from my Broadband Summit in 2015, I will be holding a further summit to update constituents and interested parties on progress with high speed broadband roll-out. Since the summit 18 months ago the Government’s broadband policy is taking clearer, and more promising, shape but there is still more to be done. The summit will take place on Friday, 3 February from 10.00am – 12.00pm at the Fieldgate Centre, Kingsclere.
I am inviting representatives from Hampshire County Council, BT and Broadband Delivery UK, the Government agency responsible for the broadband roll-out, to join us and speak. Following the speakers, there will be a question and answer session. The event will help residents understand the plans of the various bodies and what alternatives are available for more rural areas.
If you would like to attend, please email Ethan Brooks at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 7219 3940 to register interest.
If there are other people within the constituency who you think would welcome an update please pass along this invitation.
I look forward to seeing you.

Loss of use of West Berkshire waste recycling facilities for north Hampshire residents - recent quote from MP Kit Malthouse
"I share residents’ frustration and raised this issue back at the beginning of August in the hope that swift action could be taken:
Since then, Councillor Tom Thacker has been working hard at his end with the County Council and I have raised the issue at my regular monthly meeting with the leader of Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council where the leader, Cllr Clive Sanders has been personally involved. Both Richard Benyon MP for Newbury and I have been actively engaged and the matter has been raised with ministers as just the first example of what could become a national problem. A couple of weeks ago I also spoke to the chief executive of West Berks Council and I know local councillors John Izett and Graham Falconer have also been exerting pressure.
There now seems to be a deal agreed whereby permits to use the site will be issued to BDBC residents in return for a payment from the County Council. There will unfortunately be a delay in issuing the permits and I am told by the Chief Executive of West Berks that Hampshire residents can expect to receive theirs at or around Christmas. This will obviously be temporarily inconvenient, but at least a resolution is on the horizon.
Cllr Tom Thacker has helpfully asked that updates are posted on parish notice boards as a means of keeping the residents informed and I know we are all grateful for his strenuous efforts to get this matter resolved".
Planning application 16/00035/OUT - land at Bishopswood Lane - 145 residential houses etc - application withdrawn.

What is a Parish Council?
The Council is the lowest tier of local government but is at the grassroots of the community. The Council normally consists of 11 voluntary Councillors (currently there are two vacancies) who are elected for a four year term of office to serve and administer for the needs of the residents of Baughurst Parish. In the event of a mid-term vacancy occurring, a new member is elected or co-opted until the next full election. The Parish Councillors determine and set policy to cater for the social, cultural, welfare and environmental needs of our residents and employ a part time Clerk to the Council to implement policy decisions.
All Councillors adhere to the Parish Council Code of Conduct and complete a Register of Interests. The Councillors have formed into sub-councils to concentrate on in-depth concerns in the local community. The committees are listed here:
Playing Fields and Open Spaces
Interested in becoming a Parish Councillor?
Why not attend as a member of the public for a few meetings, and if this encourages you to get involved, perhaps speak with an existing Councillor or the Parish Council Clerk who can provide more information about Parish Council elections and mid-term vacancies?
When does the Parish Council meet?
The Parish Council generally meets on the 4th Thursday in each month. The meetings are held either in the Heath End Village Hall or Wolverton Village Hall, with the exception of August and December. Primarily most meetings are held in Heath End hall, except the May, June and July meetings, where the meetings are generally held at Wolverton Village Hall. The meetings are open to the public and all are welcome to listen to the proceedings, Visiting public are not entitled to participate in the business of the meeting without the invitation of the Chairman. Two short Public Question slots are always scheduled in the agenda.
