MINUTES OF LEIGH-ON-MENDIP PARISH COUNCIL MEETING
         HELD ON WEDNESDAY 14 APRIL 1993 AT THE SCHOOL.

Councillors present were J Davis, R Dixon, S Haywood, H  Mawdsley 
and D Pattison.
Apologies were accepted from D Turner.

PLANNING APPLICATION FOR DOUBLE GARAGE AT MENDIP VIEW, LEIGH ROAD
During the discussion A Gould arrived.
Councillors   were  concerned  at  the  size  of   the   proposed 
development which was larger than the house.  They objected to it 
on  grounds of size but agreed that they would not object to  the 
building of a normal size domestic double garage.         (CLERK)

DEVELOPMENT AT THE BUNGALOWS, WHITEHOLE HILL
Following  a  query  the Clerk  had  ascertained  that  detailed 
Planning Permission had been given for a house on this site.  The 
PC had not been consulted, instead Holcombe PC had been consulted 
despite  the  fact  that on the original  application  Leigh  was 
listed  as  a  consultee.  Plans have  been  requested.   It  was 
decided  to write to MDC and ask that safeguards be put in  place 
so future mistakes of this type do not occur.             (CLERK) 

HALECOMBE QUARRY PLANTING PROPOSALS
Comments  were  asked  for  on  this  application  by  19  April, 
Councillors felt that this was rushed especially in light of  the 
fact  that  WH had had six months to comply  with  the  condition 
asking  for  landscaping  proposals to  be  submitted  since  the 
granting  of the Planning Permission.  It was strongly felt  that 
this ought to have been discussed at the Quarry Liaison  Meeting. 
Objections  were raised on a number of items including the  route 
of  the footpath; the lack of details for the pipeline,  phasing, 
quarry benches.  A letter will be sent the SCC.           (CLERK)

It  was  agreed  to write to WH about the state of  some  of  the 
recently planted trees which need to be staked.           (CLERK)
It  was  further decided in connection with Halecombe  Quarry  to 
invite  a  planning  officer from SCC to come to  a  meeting  and 
explain  about  breaches  of the  planing  permission  which  are 
occuring.                                                 (CLERK)
It  was  decided  to  write to the NRA  for  their  view  on  the 
materials used for the culveting of the Halecombe Brook.  (CLERK)

LJH
Following  a  letter concerning the exact site of  the  employees 
carpark it was agreed to write to MDC asking that it be  measured 
and marker post errected.                                 (CLERK)  

The  DRAFT  REVISION  OF MPG6 was circulated  and  comments  were 
invited from Councillors.
