AFFORDABLE HOUSING OPPORTUNITY

The Parish Council is pursuing an opportunity for two additional Affordable Houses (for Social/Affordable Rent) in the village. Funding is available until April 2020, after that the funds will be made available to adjacent parishes. However we need to achieve three things:-
1.    to demonstrate there is a need.
2.    to identify sites (either new build or sale of existing)
3.    for a Housing Association to agree to manage them (“take them on”)

To demonstrate the need, anyone who has a local connection and has a housing need should register with the Homefinder Somerset Choice Based Lettings (CBL) scheme. Further details and a link to the scheme are
here.

You are not committing to anything by registering but you will be allowing Mendip District Council to assess the potential need and hopefully agree to increasing the Affordable Housing stock in our village.

Criteria to register on the Homefinder Somerset Choice Based Lettings (CBL) scheme can be found in the
Homefinder Somerset Common Lettings Policy.

BE A VILLAGE RANGER


Volunteers have already made a difference.

How can you help?



VILLAGE FOOTPATHS

The Parish Council is looking for volunteers to help look after our footpaths, primarily any minor pruning if necessary and reporting any significant access issues to the Parish Path Liaison Officer (Parish Councillor David Sparkes), who can then liaise with Somerset Rights of Way. To identify a footpath and stile which you may like to "adopt" click here. We've had a good response so far but there are still some left! See the current list here. Note that it is the responsibility of the landowner to maintain Rights of Way.



FIX MY STREET
A handy website for reporting problems to both Somerset and Mendip Councils (fly tipping, street lights, pavement, pot holes etc). See what has already been reported.  The site automatically sends a report to the relevant authority. Don't just talk about it - report it at fixmystreet . You can still report directly to the Councils (details are on the "Village Services" page).
