Parish Council Meeting Minutes and Reports

New Parish Web Site

Welcome to the new Mancetter Parish web site. The new site is responsive design and will render well on desktops/laptops, tablets and smart phones. The new site has the all main information about the Parish and over the coming weeks we will be adding more detail, particularly we need to review and update the information we had on the old site relating to local organisations, clubs and businesses for both Mancetter and Ridge Lane and some other pages from the old site. If you wish to use any photographs from this site please ask so that the originator can be credited. If anyone has old photographs of Mancetter and Ridge Lane we would like to see them and possibly put them on this web site.

A5 Woodford Lane to Mancetter Island Resurfacing

Highways England has announced that there will be closures overnight on the A5 in December and January to enable resurfacing and partial reconstruction of the carriageway to take place. The information we have is that work will take place between Woodford Lane and Drayton Lane from 11th to 17th December 2015 and from 8th January to 20th January 2016 south of Mancetter Island. In both instances it will be necessary to fully close both carriageways in phases at night between Woodford Lane and Mancetter Island. Details can be found in the notice and map from the Managing Agent Contractor.

Please note the map supplied is not very clear. Although not stated in the notice we understand from the Managing Agent Contractor that the overnight closures are effective from 7pm until 7am the following morning. However, we also understand it normally takes about an hour to set out the traffic cones, closure points and signing and then remove them the following morning so it is expected the road to be physically closed by 8pm and re-opening will commence around 6am.

Mancetter Parish Council's Community Grant Fund

Applications must satisfy a number of conditions to be considered for a grant. Bids should be made for projects which will be of benefit to the whole community or a specific group whose principal objectives are not those of a single individual. Applications will not be accepted where the benefit is to a single individual.

The project should be of benefit to a significant number of persons living within the Parish. Applications will be considered only from "not for profit" organisations. Applications should be for one-off projects. Applications for sums up to 50% of total project cost, to a maximum of £200 will be considered. Applications are considered twice a year in July and November. Applications should be submitted by the first day of the month. Full Guidance Notes and Application Form.
