Parish Council meeting

Hullbridge parish Council will be holding its monthly meeting on Monday 12th December at the Hullbridge Centre in Windermere Avenue Hullbridge.  The start time is 7.30pm and it is open to the public so everyone is welcome and will be given the opportunity to speak, if they wish to.

The agenda is quite long but some of the more important issues will be

Tyndale House
This property is a sheltered scheme for the over 50’s (I will check the age) and is managed by Rochford Housing Association which is part of the Sanctuary Group.  Sanctuary want to redevelop and modernise Tyndale House but this will mean extensive work and the “temporary” moving of residents while the work is done.  Cllr Michael Hoy has concerns that the “temporary” may become permanent and some people at least may not be able to return.  A report will be heard and further action taken to help the residents.

Budget for 2012-13
Discussions will be had on the budget and whether to increase or decrease spending in certain areas.  The Council will then agree the budget and also the precept (Parish element of the Council Tax) for next year, 2012-13.

Co-opt a new member
As Mr Eddie Hall resigned notices have been put up for people to come forward who want to become a Parish Councillor.  Outside of election time it is possible for councillors to Co-opt people onto the Parish Council without an election.  We understand that two people have put their names forward so Councillors will have to vote on the night.
