In April last year I joined Carlton Colville Town Council as the Clerk. Having come from a banking background I did not have full understanding of what a town council did, so here I will try to help you as the community understand this and maybe encourage some of you to want to become a Councillor.
Firstly let me tell you about what is planned for the next year in Carlton Colville.
2018 promises to be an exciting year for Carlton Colville as we are now finishing putting plans in place and signing off our brand new Skate Park in Carlton Meadow Park. It is hoped that, when finished this project will become a ‘go to’ destination for all the local skate boarders, scooter and BMX riders and that it may encourage the formation of new clubs and will actually discourage some of the anti-social behaviour around the other smaller play areas within the parish. Alongside that we as a Town Council are in early negotiation about a new Community Hub which provide a much needed place for all walks of the community to meet and engage in activities. We continue to provide 17 allotments in Borrow Close and are actively involved with taking the local communities views on the Waveney Local plan to put more than 800 more houses in the vicinity. So you can see we have lots on the agenda so why not get involved?
