And the good news? Also from Monday 21st, evening and Sunday parking charges are being lifted. For more information, including a list of locations, go here.

Update – Emergency Planning

The Parish Council wishes to share with residents a couple of updates sent by Hampshire County Council’s Head of Emergency Planning & Resilience to the local community plan holder (the chairman of the PC).

The first is a general update which you may read by clicking here.

The second will be of interest to anyone whose property is in danger of groundwater flooding (hopefully not too many at Chilworth).  You may read it by clicking here.

Fly-tipper fined

It’s pleasing to hear that TVBC managed to identify and successfully prosecute one of the people responsible for the recent spate of fly-tipping in Roman Road.  See this article for details.  We should all follow the advice in the final paragraph, viz. to check the licence credentials of any waste-carriers with whom we contract. If we turn a blind eye, we ourselves become part of the fly-tipping problem even though we probably will not be prosecuted.
