Farringdon Parish Council Meeting Held 4th March 2020:

There were four main topics up for discussion; The threat of another flood along the A32, the appointment of a new Parish Clerk, the Farringdon Yew Appeal and the problems with the track adjacent to the Church Lych Gate.

Groundwater Levels are creeping up but, at the time of the meeting, are still just over a metre below flood level. Various works have or are being carried out and currently drainage improvements are being carried to repair various problems with drainage beyond Chawton.

The appointment of a Parish Clerk was approved and, subject to the candidates acceptance of the post, the new Clerk should be in place for the Village meeting on the 25th March.

The Council approved a grant of £500 to the Save the Farringdon Yew Campaign following a report on progress so far and future plans from Bryan Orchard.

Less straightforward was the discussion on possible funding to reinstate the section of track on the east side of the Village Green. After a long and somewhat convoluted discussion it seems that while the land is owned by the Church this section of the track may or may not be a Bye way Open to All Traffic although the branch on the other side of the green up towards the Manor is shown as such on the definitive map.

After a long winded discussion was eventually brought to a close by the Chair, the general concensus was that whoever is responsible for the maintenance of this section the it is outside the remit of Farringdon Parish Council. The saga continues!

The above meeting was preceded by the AGM of the Village Hall Trust, although there was little to report due to the sensitivity of negotiations a brief update on progress so far can be found on the Trust Page
