Thank you for the fantastic response logging your views and for all your support and help, it is very much appreciated.

CREMATORIUM PLANNING PUBLIC CONSULTATION
NOW OPEN & NEXT STEPS
AVDC Planning Application number: 14/01575/APP
This update is to give you the latest facts and information about the crematorium.
There are many rumours and much misinformation. The Parish Council has waited to send you hard facts and detailed information, to help you make your own views known to AVDC's Planning department and Strategic Planning committee.
LOSS OF A LEISURE FACILITY
Our community has conducted a strong campaign against this application throughout. This has been possible only with the support and agreement of the community. The Parish Councillors have remained firm in their resolve, despite having received communication from the applicant's solicitors in the early stages of the original application claiming that Councillors could be surcharged up to £1 million each, should they continue to oppose the crematorium.
Thank you, once again for your support and encouragement throughout, which has been invaluable, and hugely appreciated during what has been a very taxing and intense time. The work continues!Kind regards,
Watermead Parish Council
Waste Collections Update 11.12.2017
Message to residents from AVDC
Due to the forecast of extremely low temperatures overnight, we anticipate that icy and snow-blocked roads are likely to make our recycling and waste collections dangerous.
For this reason, we've reluctantly decided to cancel collections on Tuesday 12 December, and to make the following changes to our normal collection schedule:
· Tuesday’s collections will be collected on Wednesday
· Wednesday’s collections will be collected on Thursday
· Thursday’s collections will be collected on Friday
· Friday’s collections will be collected on Saturday
It's very rare that we have to make changes like these but, in the current extreme weather conditions, public and staff safety must remain our priority.
Please note, there’s a possibility that should the weather get worse, there’s a chance we may have to revise these changes again but we are hopeful that we’ll be able to make the collections as detailed above.

The Parish Council meets on 21st September and this application will be on the agenda now that we have been formally consutled. The existing PC objections also stand.
We will be taking advice from our planning and highways consultants to ensure that any new information in the fresh submitted documents is carefully considered, and a reasoned response, based on planning law, is made.
This will take some time, and we will prepare and send a list of the planning issues within the next two weeks, which we will forward to you to use in your own response, if you wish.
In the meantime please note that Noreen Shardlow, our Parish Clerk, is on leave from Friday 25th August until Friday 1st September, inclusive. If you have any questions, or would like any assistance in connection with this application, please call 01296 336575.
