Parish Council

Frank Rosamond the recently elected Chair of MDDC made Hemyock his first visit to a Parish Council on Wednesday evening where he was congratulated by Heather Stallard and her team. 

The BMX track beside the Culm River by Millhayes Farm has been transformed by grass cutting and litter picking.  Young people who use it are being asked to give the site a name.  The Council want to remind Dog owners not to the use BMX track for walking their animals.

Work is in progress to complete the construction of a new raised walkway leading from the Culm river into the village.  Outline plans were seen by Councillors.

Parish Council After a two year wait, Police Woman Victoria Underhill is the new Beat Manager for the Upper Culm area including Hemyock. She introduced herself at a recent parish Council meeting when delivering the up-to-date crime figures which continue to be on the low side - which is encouraging. Vicki was warmly welcomed by Heather Stallard Chair of HPC. But our excitement may be premature!

Pavements we need them, but who owns them?

Parish Council Hemyock Parish Council has negotiated with some residents to give up property frontage in order to make way for pavements. This ongoing project is proving successful and very popular. It has also become normal for planners to make the provision of pavements outside properties part of their consent on major works where this is reasonable. An example is the recent new builds along Station Road. But an interesting planning question has arisen; “who then owns the pavements?”

Parish Council The Blackdowns look great in white, but maybe you know someone who is living alone and for whom you might have safety concerns. There are elderly people living alone in the Hills around us and your Parish Council is suggesting that we should all be good neighbours and phone a friend.

New Walkway in Sight

Parish Council For some time now the historic raised walkway which links the Millhayes area of Hemyock with the main village has been falling into disrepair. A responsibility of the Highways Department of DCC, the County Council are not willing to spend money in order to repair and upgrade it to modern standards of health and safety. Concerned parishioners have raised the issue of its continuing deterioration and dangerous condition with Hemyock Parish Council who regrettably have decided to ask DCC to remove it.
