News from the Council Chamber - October 2018

Here our notes from the meeting on 2nd October to which your Parish Council wished to draw attention. Full minutes will appear on noticeboards and this website in due course.

Parish Council by-election

This has been called to fill the vacancy occasioned by the resignation of a councillor. Anyone who would like to stand is encouraged to read the notes here. Last date for nominations is Friday 12th October. Assuming there are multiple nominations, the election will take place on 8th November at the Camelot room of the village hall.


The Parish Council has let a contract to have the war memorial by the Church cleaned in time for the commemoration of the armistice of the great war on 11th November. Following this commemoration, the Parish Council will be looking to relocate the soldier efigies which have been placed around the village, to a permanent display. Any suggestions as to the best place for these should be sent to the council clerk.

Canadian Solar

Deciding on the best project(s) suitable for the use of these funds is proving somewhat difficult and the council decided to form a small group to look at the criteria to judge the submissions. The criteria will be published in due course; however, it is likely to limit the use to capital as opposed to revenue projects. Further submissions are welcome in the meantime to supplement those already received (surfacing the village hall car park, outdoor gym equipment, floodlighting at the playing field, support for an artificial pitch at the playing fields, refurbishment of the town hall toilet.) Residents submitting ideas will be asked to present their case in due course to the Parish Council.

Plastic Free

Following from correspondence from a resident, the Parish Council is investigating what would be involved to make Milborne Port a “plastic free” community.
