In the Ordinary meeting held on 15th January 2024, the Parish Council resolved to create a new Planning Committee with delegated powers to make decisions on behalf of the Council in order to respond to all planning applications referred to the Council by Warwick District Council.
The Planning Committee meetings will be held in the Village Hall on Red Lane and members of the public and press are welcome to attend. Each meeting will have a public participation session although issues raised by the Public during this session will be limited to those items listed on the meeting agenda.
There is no fixed schedule of meetings, they will be held when necessary to meet the deadline for submission of comments set by Warwick District Council. The agenda for the meetings will be posted on the Council's website and noticeboards at least 3 working days before the meeting and draft meeting minutes be published to the Council's website and noticeboard afterwards.
The Full Council will receive an update from the Planning Committee Chairman at each Ordinary meeting.
The UK’s telephone network is changing. By the end of 2025, most telephone providers will have moved their customers from landlines served by the old analogue (copper) network to new upgraded landline services which use digital technology. This is commonly referred to as The Digital Switchover.
BT Consumer Group – the largest provider of landline phone services in the UK will start migrating their customers in the West Midlands region from February 2024 and to coincide with this, they are hosting a number of roadshows / drop-in events in the Warwickshire and Solihull area over the next month. This will enable their customers to find out more about the switchover to their digital phone network known as Digital Voice.
There will be the following drop in sessions:

Green-fingered residents who wish to continue having their garden waste collected can now renew their subscription for the period from 1 April 2024 to 31 March 2025. The annual charge for the fortnightly service for this year is £44 for each garden waste bin permit and covers collections for the 2024/25 period, with a two week break over Christmas and New Year.
Residents who have signed up for reminders or are users of the waste collection app will have already received a message to remind them to renew their subscription, however due to GDPR regulations, the District Council has been unable to contact other service subscribers.
Garden waste permits can be renewed online at www.warwickdc.gov.uk/gardenwaste or by telephone on 01926 456123 (8.45am to 5.15pm, Monday to Wednesday; 8.45am to 5pm, Thursday and Friday). Customers can expect to receive the permit 10 working days after they’ve purchased it.
Items that can go in the green bin include grass cuttings, shrub and hedge cuttings, plants, flowers, leaves, and pruning’s, bedding from non-meat-eating pets and twigs, branches, and small logs (max 10cm diameter).
Subscriptions are open all year, but the cost will remain at £44 with no pro-rata rate available. Only green bins displaying the correct permit will be emptied.
Residents who choose not to take part in the scheme have the choice of home composting or taking their garden waste to a Household Waste Recycling Centre. In addition, Warwickshire County Council offer discounted home composting bins on their website: Composting – Warwickshire County Council
