Horsmonden Parish Council
At their meeting on 6th November the Parish Council agreed to the appointment of Feria Urbanism as consultants to aid the steering group in the preparation of the NH plan. The fee agreed to appoint Feria Urbanism was £11400 plus reasonable expenses and VAT to complete tasks 1-6 of the project which would provide an Interim Report for the parish.
Cllrs White and Jenkinson offered to put themselves forward to be the council’s appointed members of the NH steering group, with Cllr Jenkinson acting as the Council’s liaison officer in this project.
Mrs Stanton very kindly offered her services to act as volunteer secretary to the steering group and the Council thanked her for stepping forward and offering to assist in this role.
In December it is hoped that an initial meeting of the Steering group will take place with Feria Urbanism to pave the way forward.
The Clerk to the council will be applying for a community grant of £9000 to assist with the expense of the project.
