Shiplake Memorial Hall - A New Chairman

At the recent Memorial Hall AGM, Hugh Lacy stood down as Chairman after three years in the role. We are very grateful to Hugh for his public service over what have been challenging times for the Hall. He will remain as a trustee enabling him to continue sharing, in the years to come, his understanding and expertise gained over a long involvement with the Hall. The new Chairman is Robert Partridge, who has been a trustee for 10 years and will lead the management team in developing a number of fresh ideas to help bring the Hall into the 21st Century and ensure that this valuable community asset continues to thrive ……………watch this space, exciting things ahead!

Neighbourhood Plan 'Pop Up' Consultations Sat. 26th

The Neighbourhood Plan is reaching an important stage as the Parish Council is due to approve the Steering Group's (SG) recommendations on 11th June, which will then be followed by a 6 week'pre-submission' consultation period. Before then we are seeking the views of residents on changes we have made, following the decision by SODC that the Thames Farm housing development is most appropriately attributed to the settlement of Lower Shiplake.  

You can now access details of those changes, presented at Shiplake's APM on Wednesday 23/5/2018, here and on the village website Home page....better still, there will be 2 'Pop Up' Consultation sessions this Saturday 26th May hosted by members of the SG:

The Plowden Arms from 11am to 4pm hosted by Susan Mann & volunteers

The Baskerville Arms from 11:15am to 4pm hosted by David Pheasant & volunteers

Yes, it is a 'public  holiday weekend' and it is short notice but we felt it important to capture residents' feedback asap, giving us time to consider this before the parish council meeting on 11th June. This in turn will enable the council to better defend the parish against speculative inappropriate housing developments whilst encouraging what is best to meet housing needs for the community. 

We want to hear and record your views...we look forward to seeing you on Saturday. 

David Pheasant - Parish Council & NP Steering Group.

In addition to the very important NP  update at this week's APM (Wed 23/5), there will be a presentation by the consultants who have developed proposals for a 'Shared/Communiy Space' initiative in Station Road, Lower Shiplake.

Your views are very important to both these projects. We look forward to seeing you at the APM and responding to any queries you might have.
