A Government amendment to the legislation regulating the meetings of local councils, has provided Parish Councils with the the option to meet remotely during the Coronavirus lockdown.The Parish Council will be holding an Extra Ordinary Parish Council Meeting via video conference, therefore, on Monday 29th March 2021. Further details of how to join the meeting will be included on this page but members of the public will be asked to leave the meeting prior to the discussion of a confidential item which will take up the majority of the meeting time.
The Spring 2020 Newsletter was distributed throughout the Parish in February. Copies of the newsletter can be requested from the Clerk.
The Parish Council supports all local projects that aim to maintain the features of the Parish, and one of these groups is TPEG.
David Shearn, member of TPEG asked to share some information regarding the group;
“The group was formed in 2004 by a number of people in the Parish who were concerned to maintain and improve the environment of the two villages. Among the more visible results of our work are the two village stones and the wonderful display of bulbs – daffodils, crocuses and snowdrops – that appear each spring in the Parish. Less obvious, but just as important, is the work we do in woodlands, clearing away saplings, and strimming near the edges of paths to keep them open for walkers.
We also do litter picking on some of the roads on the outskirts of the village.
Our funding comes from a number of sources, including the Parish Council.
To find out more of what we do, and how you might be able to contribute with ideas or a little of your time, do visit the TPEG website via the following link;”
TPEG – Tankersley & Pilley Environmental Group
The Parish Council has taken the decision to cancel the annual Children’s Christmas Party this year (2020) because of Covid-19. The Parish Council are disappointed that it has had to make this decision but it wants to make sure its residents keep safe and well.
The Parish Council are looking to invest the money it has saved by not holding a Christmas Party and the Bonfire this year into other activities next year including putting up hanging baskets in the village next Spring.
Please visit this page to keep up to date on the position regarding the latest planning applications for Pilley and Tankersley.
Tankersley Parish Council worked alongside residents to gather their views on community issues and opinions regarding topics such as housing and development, crime and policing, public services, roads and the local environment.
Resident responses were collated and their views have allowed the Parish Council to develop a summary document, to be used to better the community and support residents within the Parish, while attempting to meet their needs.
