CHAIRMANS ANNUAL REPORT 8th May 2018

It goes without saying that this has been a very challenging year for the Parish and also for me personally with some health issues – I would like to thank my colleagues on the council for the support given me during the most difficult of those times.

We have had the sad resignation of one of our Councillors Stefan Buckland due to job relocation and the Lockington Vacancy will be advertised immediately after this meeting with a closing date of 31st May with interviews to take place on Monday 4th June 2018 – venue to be confirmed. More »

It has been a year that we have been doing a lot of behind the scenes work in the Community for example we have engaged more with outer part of the Parish at Sawley Marina and some of the residents came to the Xmas light switch on which was great to see.

We also became more involved with the Village Hall and were involved in helping the management committee secure the freehold of the Village Hall following a generous gesture from Mr Charles Coaker and we look forward to assisting with the upgrading of the Village Hall as well as continuing to pursue the Pavillion Project.

We have seen some renovation work take place namely the railings and telephone box and Hemington is starting to look a little more like the village it was – there is more work to do.

The residents of Lockington have been through a very tough time with the works commencing on the Rail Freight Interchange , last summer saw difficult conditions with dust and noise coupled with the loss of amenity of the footpaths and walks that we have all so enjoyed. Add to that the very difficult Parking situation on Main St in Lockington caused by inadequate parking availability within Lockington Hall it has indeed been a tough time – I am committed to continuing to support the Parking Action Group to a suitable conclusion for all parties and Lockington will again be a pretty place to live – once the "dirty work" for Segro Logistics Park is complete we will have a meeting purely for Lockington Residents to discuss what planting / aesthetic improvements they would like to see.

It has also been nice to see residents get more involved with local matters and we will continue to work closely with the Chair of Governors of Hemington Primary School to continue the work for the greater good.

I am looking forward to another productive year with the Council and Thank the Clerk and my fellow councillors for their work and commitment » Less
