HOTON REMEMBERS

Remembrance Poppies are being displayed on the lampposts in the village to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War.

Thank you to the Gane family for organising, collecting and installing the poppies on behalf of Hoton Parish Council

Hoton Parish Council News - November 2018

Village Hall
The village hall will become extra warm and cosy for the festive season following the purchase by your parish council of new curtains for the windows and doors. The curtains have blackout linings which will be of benefit when films and sporting fixtures are shown in the summer months. Hoton Parish Council has also made a donation to Hoton Village Hall for the purchase of a Christmas tree to enhance the street scene and add sparkle to the village over the Christmas period. More »

Pavement parking
There have been a number of incidents of vehicles parking on the pavements in and around the village. This inconsiderate behaviour is causing difficulty for some residents, particularly vulnerable pedestrians and those with pushchairs. It is also restricting the visibility for some drivers. Although it is not an offence to park on the pavement, it is an offence to obstruct the pavement and this is generally classed as parking so as to prevent a double buggy passing (1.2m). Generally, if there are parking restrictions in place, such as double yellow lines or signs indicating any restrictions, then Charnwood's street wardens will investigate, these cases can be reported to Charnwood Borough Council. If there are no restrictions in place then it is a police matter. These cases should be reported directly to the police either by phoning 101 or emailing https://leics.police.uk/local-policing/charnwood-north/team

Burial Ground
The parish council has resolved to renew the agreement with the Prestwold-cum-Hoton, Burton on the Wolds and Cotes Parochial Church Council (PCC) to administer the general maintenance of the burial ground at Hoton, assisted by a contribution from the PCC. The parish council believes that although it is not responsible for the upkeep of this area, the 'minimum standards' approach that is taken by the PCC, necessitated by its budgetary restrictions, falls short of the way Hoton Parish Council wishes to enhance the aesthetics of the village, as set out in its strategic plan. By using council resources and combining the maintenance of the burial ground with its existing maintenance expenditures at the playing field and the additional 'top-ups' of highway responsibilities, the council hopes to make efficiency savings and maintain a burial ground that is a better reflection of the way the village wishes to respect its former inhabitants.

A burial ground working party, chaired by Parish Council vice-chairman Stuart Isbister and including members of the public and the PCC, oversees the maintenance and makes recommendations to the PC. The working party welcomes any constructive suggestions from villagers regarding the burial ground and is also considering volunteer 'action days' to tackle some of the issues beyond the scope of the agreement. Please contact the parish clerk or Stuart if you are willing to be involved.

Police report
There was one theft reported in August and in September a dwelling burglary was reported whereby entry was forced through the rear door.

Poultry farm application
We have been informed by Charnwood Borough Council that the applicant has been asked to submit a further environmental impact assessment before any decision is made about the proposal for egg-laying units on Rempstone Road. We understand that this may result in a further consultation on the plans before the application is heard by the plans committee next year.

Next Parish Council Meeting
The next meeting will be the annual meeting of Hoton Parish Council, which will be held on Monday 7th January 2019 at 8:00pm in Hoton Village Hall. » Less
