Mountfield Parish Assembly 2019

The Mountfield Parish Assembly will be held on 9th April 2019 starting at 7.30pm in the Village Hall. We have invited all the clubs, groups and societies in Mountfield and hope to have a defibrillator demonstration from the Bexhill First Responders and we also hope that Sussex Police will attend.
It will be an informal and friendly gathering and we hope as many residents of Mountfield will come along, mix and mingle and have a glass of wine with us.
Looking forward to seeing you all there on the 9th April.
Please contact me if you need any more information.

Parish Council Elections 2019

Elections will be held in Rother on 02.05.19 for Parish Councillors.
If you are interested in standing as a Parish Councillor for Mountfield – please contact me (details below) and I will send you all the necessary information.
The dates for delivery of nomination papers to Bexhill Town Hall are from Monday 25.03.19 to 4pm 03.04.19.
Parish Councils are vital to the local community for “grass roots” actions – grants to local organisations that glue the community together, lobbying for local issues (just think about Southern Water) and you play an important part in making the place where you live a better one for all.
I’ve been a Parish Clerk for some 8/9 years now and have no doubt about the vital role our parish councils play in our rural communities.

Goose House Volunteers Sorted!

Very, very many thanks to Nick Holden, Chris and Susan O’Sullivan for offering to clean the new goose house.
Hopefully in the Spring we shall have a spanking new goose house and much happier geese.
Once again, many thanks to Nick, Chris and Susan.
Parish Clerk


Goose House Problems

As you probably know by now, Mountfield Parish Council are actively considering replacing the goose house.  However, this will not be possible unless we can get volunteers to offer to clean it on a regular basis (about once every 6 weeks).  If a new goose house is installed, it will be attached to a chain so it can be dragged to the side – no waders!
MPC will reimburse all costs for cleaning materials and straw.
Unless MPC can find volunteers, the only option will be to permanently re-home the geese as the present derelict goose house is not suitable.

MPC Planning Meetings

From October 2018, Mountfield Parish Council have booked the months of February, April, June, August, October and December to hold a meeting to consider planning applications for responses that fall outside the scheduled, bi-monthly full council meetings.  These planning meetings will only be held if a response deadline falls outside of the normal full council meeting dates.
The planning meetings will be attended by all Members and will have a shorter agenda.  The only items, apart from legal procedural items, e.g. Disclosure of interests etc., will be any planning applications.
There will be an open forum as usual, for members of the public to ask questions and state any concerns on matters on the agenda.
Agenda and minutes will be published as usual on this website.  Notice of agendas will be posted to those subscribed to email alerts.
The dates for these provisional meetings until the end of the current council year are – 09.10.18 – 11.12.18 and 12.02.18, they will start at usual at 7.30pm in the Village Hall.
Dates for full council meetings and provisional dates for planning meetings for the council year 2019-20 will be published shortly on this website.
