Upcoming Ardingly Parish Council Meetings: May 2020

Recent Legislation has given the Parish Council the authority to hold its meetings remotely.

Members of the Public can participate remotely in all Parish Council Meetings.

Members of the Public wishing to participate in any upcoming meetings of the Parish Council should contact the Clerk on either ardinglypc@hotmail.co.uk or 01444 226 209 and the Clerk will provide a link and/or dial in details for the meeting you wish to attend.

Please see the below agenda’s for upcoming meetings of the Parish Council to be held in May 2020.

Please note the 1st of May Extraordinary Meeting Agenda states that “This is a wholly exempt business meeting. Public and Press may not attend”  this is incorrect!

All Parish Council Meetings are open to the Public until such time that a resolution is made to exclude the Public for reasons of confidentiality. In the case of this meeting that will be at item 1550.1

Bonfires during Covid-19

During this time when the Government are instructing us all to stay at home, we are strongly recommending that no one has a bonfire.

With more people at home and COVID-19 increasing the susceptibility of people to smoke due to respiratory illness, there is a high probability neighbours will be adversely affected if you have a bonfire.

If you are affected by bonfire smoke, we advise that you talk to your neighbours, while maintaining social distancing, as they may not be aware of the impact it is having on you. If this approach fails, you can contact MSDC, and they will attempt to resolve the matter informally.

Whilst we hope that common sense will prevail, please note that the MSDC can issue Fixed Penalty Notices (£100) in situations where people continue to burn despite being asked to stop.

MSDC Environmental Team can be contacted in the following ways;

Tel: 01444 477 292
