The Next Parish Council Meeting is the Annual Parish Meeting:-


Wednesday 13th December 2017 at 7:30pm

 in the Jubilee Room of the Village Hall.


If you have any issues you wish to bring to Councillors attention or any ideas you would like to put forward, why not come along and join in. 


A meeting of Dunholme Parish Council took place on Wednesday 8th November 2017.  Six parish councillors were in attendance.

 Firstly, a very Merry Christmas to all residents of the village and best wishes for the New Year.



Applications Received

136785 – Land North of Honeyholes Lane - Planning application to erect 64no. dwellings with roads, garages and residential parking, including community parking, and public open spaces - resubmission of 135790.


 2018/19 Budget and Precept setting

It is that time of the year again where Councillors are deciding what work and projects need to be taken in the New Year.  A draft budget is drawn up of costs that they could be faced with and an estimated precept figure is taken from this ie, the amount of council tax required from residents.  For 2018/19, the precept has been increased to £40,950.  This is an increase of 5 percent from last year to cover similar increases from contractors and suppliers for their work in the area.  The relevant paperwork can be found on the Parish Councils website.


 Post Box

The post box is back in the centre of the village – situated outside of the co-op, opposite the bike racks.  Royal Mail have advised the Council that it is now fully operational.



The Parish Council are applying to a grant to obtain a defibrillator for the village at a reduced cost.  These units can be found in a lot of villages and cities around the county. Should we be successful, the unit will be a very valued asset to the area.


 Christmas tree Disposal Service

This service will once again be offered to the residents of the village on Saturday 6th January 2018, 11am – 1pm in the car park of the Co-Op.

 Kennington Close Play Area

Please be advised that there is a wooden fence at the entrance to the park from Kennington Close entrance that is in need of repair.  The Council have accepted a quote to replace this with some new metal fencing in the New Year.

 The Dunholme Distribution – E Shot

The Parish Council are always looking for ways of communicating with residents.  If this is something that you would be interested in receiving, please let the Clerk have your email address and it will be added to the distribution list.  Your email address will only be used by the Parish Council and will not be passed onto third parties.
