FIVE “LOCAL LADS” LOOK AFTER THEIR COMMUNITY

P

ictured (from left to right) are Steve Wyatt, Chris Hall, Benjamin Simister, Shaun Ponsford and Geordie Taylor giving a cheque donation of £1,245 to Nick Fritz, President of the Rotary Club of Hungerford for Local Charity Funds. The five lads raised nearly £5,000 from sponsors by successfully scaling the peaks of Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England and Snowdon in Wales, all in a time of under 24 hours. Nick Fritz commented, “Well done on a wonderful achievement” and thanked them, saying “how delighted Rotary was to be working with the “local lads” to benefit others in their Community”. Others who enabled this feat, by sponsoring their transport and their fitness preparation respectively were Hungerford’s Tuesday Club and Herongate Leisure Centre.

HUNGERFORD POLICE NEWS

H

ungerford has had another exceptionally quiet month with as few as 25 jobs recorded at the time of this report. This time last year we had 54. I have dealt with another criminal damage to a vehicle in Ramsbury Drive where it appears the bodywork had been deliberately scratched. I am aware people are parking their vehicles and then going off to work and this has brought out frustrations in local residents, however they are not committing any traffic offences and it does not give anyone the right to damage them. Criminal Damage Act 1971 “When a person who without lawful excuse, destroys or damages any property belonging to another, intending to destroy or damage such property or being reckless as to whether any such property would be destroyed or damaged shall be guilty of the offence”. I will be leaflet dropping in the area to give advice to the local residents. Two people have been arrested throughout July for being in possession of drugs. One has received a police caution. Another was also found in possession of drugs and was arrested on suspicion and later bailed pending the results. We have reintroduced drugs as a priority within Hungerford. We do not tolerate drug activity within the town. Please let me know if you have any information regarding drugs. Your information will be dealt with in complete confidence. The hot weather can also make us do things we normally don’t do as two people left their car windows open at the local vets in Bath Road to come back and find valuable items had been taken.

World Web News LETTER TO EDITOR Sirs, It may interest residents within one mile of Hungerford Town Centre that West Berkshire Council have made a planning application to change the use of the Day/Resource Centre in Ramsbury Terrace in Hungerford from D1 to D2 status. Nothing too troublesome in that then? But wait a minute.......... This Application allows West Berkshire Council to rent out the Day Centre for Stag Nights, Hen Parties, Discotheques, Weddings, Parties, bingo etc seven days a week until 11:00pm. This usage and operating times are wholly inappropriate for such noisy activities in a quiet area with at least 6 children’s bedrooms within 10 metres of the Centre. The Council state that the Centre Manager can control this activity via the use of lease and hire agreements. This is unenforceable. Who will be present to regulate the activities and enforce the closing times? Will West Berks Council be present at every disco or stag night to ensure the revelry ceases? There is no means by which the opening and closing times proposed (even if they were acceptable, which they are not) can be enforced. Hungerford Police Station is un-manned and, in any event, we all know that the Police will not respond to noise complaints. There are already enough entertainment and meeting premises available within the Town (British Legion, Croft Hall, Town Hall, Rugby Club, John O’ Gaunt Community College numerous hotels and the Hungerford Club. This proposal will cause untold and regular disturbance to an estimated 350 local residents not to mention 30 primary school-age children. I think that the real reason for this application is actually summed up in the Planning Application itself: “The rentals charged will be affordable to hirers, but will enable the Council to meet the high running costs of these purpose built, fully accessible, specialist facilities.” Yes- at a personal cost to the local residents Having managed to run a highly successful Old Folks Day Centre into the ground, West Berks Council now wants to recoup some of its self–inflicted losses by damaging the lives of the residents who live within earshot of this proposal. There is no reassurance as to the use that the building will be put to, in fact the opening and closing times directly lead to the conclusion that it WILL be used for late night entertainment, why else specify 11:00 pm? Not many WI meetings take place until 11 at night. The Planning Application deliberately overstates the number of parking spaces (20) on the site. The true number is a maximum of 16 spaces at the very most. The residents already experience parking conflict and dispute with the 8 to 10 workers currently at the Centre and the commuters who street-park and use resident parking spaces to avoid paying in the Town centre and the Station. What will be the result if dozens of people turn up for a wedding reception or a disco? The centre may close at 11pm (we don’t of course believe that will happen for one second) but we all know the activity outside will continue until much later. Smoking, talking and swearing. All this with a large number of primary school age children attempting to sleep within 5 to 10 metres of the Centre. I urge all residents within amplified earshot of this monstrous proposal to submit an objection before the deadline of 8th August 2012. You will find the details on the West Berks web site under Planning Application Number: 12/01620/FUL NEIGH1. Yours etc... Roger Brown 6 Ramsbury Drive, Hungerford

with the Adviser

PUBLIC OPINION IMPORTANT IN DEVELOPMENT PLANS Hungerford’s Mayor, Cr Martin Crane has emphasised the importance of town opinion on the Hungerford Town Council’s brief for possible improvements to the railway station and surrounds. The town is currently in a six-week consultation on the draft brief which ends on August 20. Cr Crane chaired a special public workshop evening recently. It was generally accepted at the meeting attended by 25 people that co-operation would be required from landholders and that a major development company would be needed to finance any project. Interested people are encouraged to express their views on a survey form available from the town council office and the library. PRESSURE FOR CROSSING Hungerford Town Council’s highways and transport committee will recommend that the council still press for a pedestrian crossing in Bridge Street near the war memorial. A recent traffic and pedestrian survey found there was no basis for a crossing. CHAMBER TO HELP WITH CARNIVAL Hungerford chamber of Commerce is expected to take over running Hungerford’s annual carnival. Hungerford Round Tble told a recent chamber meeting that Round Table no longer had the manpower or resources to organise and run the carnival. Chamber chairman Nigel Perrin told the meeting that Neale Marney had agreed to chair a carnival committee comprising members of Round Table and the chamber. Concern has been expressed that the carnival dates may clash with the Marlborough Jazz Festival which drws many people from Hungerford. TOWN DEVELOPMENT ISSUE Hungerord Town Council’s planning committee will consider the town’s development under a neighbourhood plan. The last council meeting was told of fears that inaction could send the wrong message to West Berkshire Council leaving it free to dictate Hungerford development. Cr Jean Hutchings said Hungerford council action “might be a way of not having things imposed upon us which we don’t like”.
