The Parish Council has set aside £3000 in its 2017/18 for Special Projects. These are intended to be small improvements or additions to the public space to make Tarvin a better place to live.
Deciding how to spend the money takes time, especially if there is not an obvious project that all Councillors support. Projects also must be costed accurately to ensure that money is properly spent. After a rather lack lustre discussion, the following projects were agreed to be looked at in greater detail.
- Tarvin Parish Signs placed on local roads at the Parish Boundary
- A Footpath Map to be displayed in the village centre and in Oscroft similar to the one in Christleton
- A hand-held speed camera for volunteer use, possibly shared with the neighbouring parishes of Guilden Sutton and Mickle Trafford, who councils have expressed concerns about speeding through their areas.
- A Beacon to commemorate the centenary of the Armistice in 1918
The point was made forcefully by one councillor that the Special Projects money should not be spent for the sake of using up the budget. If suitable projects could not be found or if there were funds left over, the money should be allocated to the grants budget so that local organisations could benefit.
Residents who have ideas for other projects are encouraged to send them to the Clerk by email at email@example.com or speak to any Councillor.
Ed: What other low cost improvements do readers think would help to make Tarvin an even better place to live?
