Thanks to a hardy bunch of volunteers residents should all now have received, or will receive the newsletter PPC has published - that's 1300 copies printed and delivered by hand.
Phase 1 Report
: A copy of the report produced by CH2M has been published by SGC in response to a Freedom of Information Act request made by a resident; you can read a copy here
: a database of information has been collated and each Councillor has been allocated responsibility for particular groups that have been categorised by area, tasks and expertise.
: SGC asked for these to be removed as they were deemed to be in breach of highway advertising rules when attached to verges, railings etc. PPC has other posters to hang in indoor public spaces where people congregate - watch out for these!
: Residents and PPC Councillors are producing a short film that shows the Eastern Options from the air and will highlight what would be lost along the way if constructed.
: Our Chair and Vice Chair attended the public meeting held at Siston yesterday evening - Siston residents were disgruntled by a perceived lack of action and urgency on behalf of their Councillors. The meeting was covered by the press and you can read the report here

Pucklechurch Parish Council has agreed a raft of measures to ensure that all residents within the parish are provided with information and an opportunity to make their opinion known. This includes making sure that appropriate guidance and response forms are available in paper format as required and that residents will have access to accurate and up to date plans and associated documentation.
PPC understands that residents have become aware of a number of speculative development proposals that have arisen from several calls for sites as part of the local plan-making process. The Joint Spatial Plan is still being formulated and more consultation is due over the summer.Pucklechurch has not been identified for strategic housing growth as it was not considered compatible with the spatial strategy.
