To all residents in Great Glemham
When planning permission was granted for the creation of the solar park on part of Parham Airfield, the operator was required to make annual payments to the parish council for "qualifying projects". That term includes projects or schemes that, in the reasonable opinion of the parish council would benefit the residents of the village "with particular focus on energy efficiency, renewable energy, nature conservation, community interest/facilities, education, recreation and quality of life". Such projects or schemes can be of any size.
The third of the 25 annual payments, £5,137, will be due in 2017. The parish council will hold a meeting around Feb/March with the aim of finding out electors' views of what the payment could be spent on. Please do come to the meeting or if you have ideas as to how the payments should be spent, please do let me know in good time before the meeting.
If you have any questions about the scheme under which the payments are to be made, please contact me.
