MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Do you care about East Hanney?

Want to make a difference to the community and environment?

Have one night a month free to attend a meeting?

Live in the new developments east of the A338?

Involved in clubs or other activities already?

Want to see some change or keep things the same?

If you answer yes to one or more of these questions then there is a great opportunity to get involved coming up. Hanney Parish Council have additional spaces available in May 2019 for two new councillors to join. Below are some common questions and answers.

HOW CAN I MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

The PC are involved in maintaining the village character, reviewing development proposals, maintaining play equipment, creating new spaces for sports and recreation and representing the residents of East Hanney on many topics.

"Since I joined the Parish Council I have assisted the council with maintaining our village character by preventing inappropriate over development, added a new nest swing to the playground and am helping to create a new area for sports and recreation. It is nice to be able to get involved and make a small difference". (Paul Aram, Councillor)

ISN'T IT LOTS OF LEGAL SPEAK?

The PC represent all views of the residents in a fair and balanced way, following robust guidelines and legal requirements. This ensures that decisions are made and carried out in a legally compliant manner, but these views are expressed by real people, with real lives and in plain English.

WHAT TOPICS ARE DISCUSSED?

The council has representations from most parts of the village but not from the East of the A338 where much of the recent development has occurred. Issues in this area include a new crossing for the A338, play equipmentareas, flooding concerns, reservoir proposals, new housing developments to name a few, so it would be good to see representation from this area of the village.

Equally other areas need to represent topics which include additional car parking at the village hall, development of King's Leases, the impact of new Grove houses on A338 traffic, additional play facilities, new sports opportunities (hockey, rugby, walking football…), funding for a multiuse sports area and plenty more.

IT'S JUST FOR OLD PEOPLE – RIGHT?

No not at all, the village needs representation from all age groups to ensure future development represents the needs of all.

SO HOW DO I FIND OUT MORE?

For more details please access our Facebook page or website. You can talk to our Clerk by email (gl-ehpc@outlook.com) or phone (867403) or contact any of our councillors to discuss this interesting and varied role.
