Parish Council Land Ownership
History: Nearly three years ago the URPC conducted a survey to discover what land was actually owned by the Council and what belonged to individuals. At the time the surveyor (S. Escreet) reported his findings, which was not totally conclusive.
25 January 2016 update: URPC minutes revealed that Simon Escreet would conclude a survey to identify Parish Council land at a cost of around £350.
20 September 2016 update: Very recently, a conclusion to this survey was paid for at great expense and now as villagers we would like to know the extent of this report. The Council revealed that the actual cost was £517 for Mr Simon Escreets services.
Land Update: Hopefully, this report is published on the URPC website soon, so that the public knows who owns what. Specifically, car parking slots and grass land. There is a felling that URPC want to off load responsibilities rather than accept new responsibilities, hence the survey. Let’s hope this is not the case.
