PAVILION REDEVELOPMENT

We are pleased to advise that plans are in progress to redevelop the pavilion. An architect was appointed in December and we are currently awaiting revised plans. 

OVERHANGING VEGETATION

Did you know that it is an offence for a hedge, tree or shrub to overhang a highway, public road or footpath under Section 154 of the Highways Act 1980?

Please be aware that overgrown vegetation can cause an obstruction and possible accidents to pedestrians who are using the footpath or to drivers who would not have a clear line of sight.

We appreciate residents’ co-operation in maintaining their trees and hedges in our village. Thank you.

FIX MY STREET.COM

Please continue to report all damage to the highway, pavements, overgrown hedges or trees and fly tipping online at www.fixmystreet.com

VILLAGE STEWARDS - Would you like to be a volunteer?

Do you have a little time to spare to help maintain our lovely village? Padbury Parish Council is looking for volunteers to become village stewards who would be happy to assist with some maintenance jobs around the village. The cost of materials will be reimbursed by the Parish Council. This would help to reduce Parish Council expenditure (which is part of your council tax). If interested please contact the clerk via email: padburyparishcouncil@gmail.com or telephone: 07961 827302. Thank you


THANK YOU to all those who have volunteered to use a little of their spare time to help maintain our lovely village.
