News & Announcements

22.06.2015 [updated]: A Solar Farm for Pucklechurch Parish?

South Gloucestershire Council is currently investigating the potential of building a ground mounted solar panel array at Leigh Farm, Pucklechurch: this is a small holding that lies within the Green Belt near to the motorway bridge
.

There are a number of ways you can view the proposals:

- Comment online at:
https://consultations.southglos.gov.uk/consult.ti/PVSolarPanelProject/consultationHome

This consultation will close on Weds. 15 July 2015

- Request a paper copy of the information
Telephone 01454 863468

- Attend a Drop-In Session between 3 -7.30pm on Tuesday 30th June at Pucklechurch Community Centre

NB should SGC decide to submit a planning application there will be a further opportunity for you to make comments through the normal planning process.

Pucklechurch Parish Council will also be arranging a Public Meeting to enable residents to make their views known.

UPDATE: Please note that the work being carried out on Westerleigh Road adjacent to this site is unrelated to the potential for a future solar development at the site.

he road outside Westerleigh Crematorium is prone to flooding. The existing drainage culvert across a field at Leigh Farm 1 that is supposed to take the water away from the road has collapsed. The cost of repairing the culvert would be prohibitive and therefore a new open ditch is being dug alongside the field boundary nearest to the Highway. This new ditch will hopefully alleviate Highway flooding in this area.

16.06.15: There are now four defibrillators operational in Pucklechurch Village and one located in Shortwood in the red telephone box. It is a good idea to make sure you know which one is closest to you.

04.06.2015: The Scarecrow Competition
answers and photos are now available here...

23.03.2015: Playersí production date change.
Please note that the next production of the Pucklechurch Players will be held on 10th and 11th July and not in May as advertised in Pucklechurch News.

23.03.2015: Happy Circle Coach trip dates published. These are open to all villagers and details may be found on the calendar or the Happy Circle page here...

23.03.2015: Website Newsletter. Some of you may have noticed it has not been issued since the end of last year. The reason is that the company I use decided to charge over £100 for the service. I have now located a free service and I will start sending it again in the near future.

03.01.2015: Give your home an MOT and lower your energy bills

South Gloucestershire Council are working in partnership with the Seven Wye Energy Agency, a charity that provides residents with free, impartial and local energy advice and assistance for energy improvements.   More details here.


13.11.14: Contact details and working hours for Parish Council Clerk. Following the appointment of Jodie Harvey as the Clerk to Pucklechurch Parish Council the Clerk's contact details are (the email and telephone number are unchanged):

Email: parish.council@pucklechurch.org
Tel: 0117 2140551
