A traffic management plan is available which shows the mitigated steps made for demolition work and construction traffic.
Separate site storage will be arranged for parking and storage.

If permission granted they hope to start work in July 2021. The first 3 months will be busiest for traffic to the site.
They have had 1 email objection to date.
They plan to liaise with key stake holders during construction phase.

21/06. PLANNING. Discussion & vote on appointing a consultant to assist with the Neighbourhood Plan.
Cllr Kearsey advised the committee on the 2 meetings held with consultants, including funds and grants available.
It was noted that as Chiseldon Parish is within the North Wessex Downs area of outstanding natural beauty there may be limited sites available. The NHP is not a tool to prevent all building development from occurring. How are the public to be persuaded to add sites to the plan to allow controlled sympathetic growth, that could protect other more vulnerable areas?
It was discussed that consultants could be used to find some suitable areas and then a public meeting could be held to see if this is something the public would want to get behind.
Other input can be added to a NHP such as building standards – materials used, plot/garden sizes/affordable homes/internet provision and more.
The grant funds can be used to educate on how the area can be protected by offering a compromise.
The SHELAA process lasts 5 years. As SBC do not currently have a 5 year housing land supply, the Local Plan is weakened. A NHP is also weakened by no 5 year housing land supply. However if land is allocated on a NHP then it goes give a 3 year window of protection.
Cllr Harris proposed that the decision on whether to proceed with a NHP should go to June full council. Cllr Rawlings seconded and all Cllrs were in favour.
The 2 consultants will be invited to attend the June full council meeting and provide a 15 minute presentation plus a written statement prior to this.

- Build Out be removed at a cost to CPC. (There is £6000 in the budget for this work)
- Request that SBC installed a raised junction at Canney Close.
- Discuss the placement of a new SID on New Road at the next meeting. (There is £2,500 in the budget for a SID within the parish)
- Ask SBC to replace any missing repeater speed signs along that stretch of road.
- Clerk is to enlist the help of Ward Cllrs to chase SBC on this matter.
A proposal was made by Cllr Harris to remove the build out at a cost to CPC. Seconded by Cllr Rogers and all Cllrs were in favour.
A proposal was made by Cllr Kearsey to request SBC install a raised junction at Canney Close. Seconded by Cllr Duke and all Cllrs were in favour.
21/14. HIGHWAYS. Layby work at Draycot Foliat and Windmill Piece
Cllr Kearsey updated the committee on the meeting held with SBC and Ward Cllr Jefferies.
Windmill Piece: a dropped kerb licence can be applied for. Concrete square paving which is permeable can be installed. No need for planning permission. Would need to check for underground utility pipes. The £25000 budget would be adequate to cover this work.
Draycot Foliat. More difficult as part SBC Highways and part SBC Housing. Would need to know if we can remove the hedge. Highways would still own their portion of land with a new surface installed. Housing would still own their strip of land, but CPC would maintain the new surface, like they do with the grass surface anyway. The different surfaces would help show the different areas of ownership. The £25000 budget should cover this work.
A proposal was made by Cllr Rawlings that we engage with Bancumm surfacing to draw up some proposals for these works. Cllr Bates seconded and all Cllrs were in favour.
21/15. HIGHWAYS. Discussion on SID at Hodson Road and further SID provision around the parish.
The Clerk is to ask the supplier of the device when it records the speed if a vehicle is approaching over 30mph. Is it when the 30mph sign is reached.
Cllr Harris proposed that a further SID be purchased for New Road to address speeding and assist when the Build Out is removed. Plus also the funds to install a further 3 poles attachments in the ground for future movement of the devices, plus the licences needed. Seconded by Cllr Rawlings and all Cllrs were in favour. The budget has an allocated reserves amount to facilitate this.
1 pole attachment for New Road, plus 2 to trial devices at Badbury.
