Planning Applications –
Ref: HOU/2018/0255, Proposal:
Installation of 2 ground source heat pumps Location: Dovenby Cottage,

– Clerks report –
Flooding updates –
– Parish Maintenance –
Request to Cumbria CC for the Parish to
be allowed to install speed awareness camera’s in Tallentire and Dovenby
have both been denied. Mr Hodgson has asked for the appeals process in this
as there have been a number of near misses due to speed that are not
reported as well as fatalities in the Dovenby stretch of road, so this is
Letter received from Cllr Barbara
Cannon, to say that the local authority are wanting to transfer the ‘assets’
of street lighting that is owned by Allerdale Borough Council. Following a
lively discussion, it was resolved to instruct the Clerk to write and thank
them for the kind offer, but to decline at this time as the Parish Council
would not be in a position to accept what could be a very expensive
liability. Clerk to copy Chair in to the response.
– Non Traveller Update
The site has now been fully vacated by
the non-travellers. It was resolved that the Clerk should contact the
highways to ask that there are steps taken to ensure that the site is not
easily accessible for any future illegal occupancy, but recognised that this
may be a challenge ultimately for a determined person or persons.
– M Sport
Cllr Cockburn has referred the Allerdale
Screening Opinion that an EIA isn’t required for M Sports application for
holiday lodges at Soddy, to the Scrutiny Panel for consideration.
Disappointment but no surprise was
expressed by the less than satisfactory response to the E.I.A. received from
Allerdale BC. It was resolved that the Clerk should make contact with Cllr
Jenkinson but that should then also write asking for more information than
has been revealed as the response is not satisfactory and if that fails then
to make a complaint to the relevant Ombudsman. The correspondence to the
local authority to give a time limited notice period.
