Stoke St Milborough Parish Council,


Hopton Cangeford and Stoke St Milborough Parish Council.

The P.C. Was formed in 1953. Hopton Cangeford had previously been part of Stanton Lacy Parish. The Village Hall, where we hold our meetings ,was built in the late 1980s, to replace an old army hut that had been used as the village hall since1922.

The Parish is made up of five small settlements scattered over approx 11 square miles mainly agriculture, including an AONB ( Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. ) These are Stoke St Milborough, Hopton Cangeford, Cleedownton, Blackford and Cleestanton.

There are just over 300 parishioners on the Electoral Roll.

**Due to public demand** We would like to inform residents: Re. Moto-x at Thornacre:

The Planning department has concluded investigations and following observations from site inspections and information gathered, officers consider planning permission is required for the use of land for motocross activities which includes the formation of the motocross track.

The Council have concerns regarding the continued use of the land for motocross purposes, as such based information available it is unlikely a retrospective planning application for the continued use would receive officer recommendation for approval. The Council is now considering formal enforcement action in respect of the breach of planning control and should the Council instigate formal action, there is an opportunity by any persons whom action is taken against, to appeal the Councils decision.

As part of our investigation into noise nuisance from motocross events held recently a Thorn Acre Farm, Environmental Protection have advised a representative of Newport Motocross Club, the event organisers, that we do not feel that this location is appropriate for motocross activity due to the noise impact on those in the locality.

The officer from our Out of Hours team who visited to witness the noise reported significant impact to residents at a property, as all rooms were affected meaning that there is no respite from the noise: voices had to be raised to hold a conversation, vibrations could be felt underfoot and there was difficulty hearing volume on electronic devices such as televisions, radios etc. Monitoring from various locations show that a number of residents are affected.

Organisers are aware that should the noise witnessed by an officer from this section during the event on 9thSeptember be representative of the noise which is likely to be experienced by the residents during future events, that it is likely that a statutory nuisance will be occurring. Organisers have suggested noise attenuation methods but we have advised that it is unlikely to be sufficient to significantly reduce the noise.
