Local Community Plan

Crowmarsh Parish Council is pleased to be able to publish the Pre-submission version of the Crowmarsh Parish Neighbourhood Plan 2020-2035, ready for consultation. The Plan, the supporting evidence reports – Appendices 1 through 5 of the Plan, the draft Strategic Environmental Assessment (Appendix 6c, supported by 6b and 6a) and the posters intended for public meetings are available here to download as pdf files.

We had intended to commence the Statutory Regulation 14 Consultation process at the end of March. However, we have been advised by the Local Planning Authority to postpone doing this in order to ensure that those who are at increased risk of severe illness from coronavirus (COVID-19) are given a fair opportunity to engage in the process, and also to allow hard copy material to be made available to those without access to the internet.

If you wish to submit comments on the Plan In the meantime, please send them by email to the Parish Clerk at [email protected] Your comments will be held over until such time as the Regulation 14 Consultation has taken place. We are particularly interested in suggestions that will strengthen the Plan.

Crowmarsh Recreation Ground – new play area

Do you support the building of a new children’s play area and outdoor gym in Crowmarsh?

The old children’s play area in the Crowmarsh Recreation Ground is over 20 years old and in need of removal or replacement. We can apply for grants from various funding bodies if we can demonstrate community support. Would you like to see it replaced with new equipment such as jungle climber, swings, roundabouts, riders on springs and slides? Our plan would include an outdoor gym (training aids) and facilities suitable for disabled children.

If you support this initiative, please add your name to the comment sheet either at The Village Shop, The Primary School or online here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/YMDV2KS. EVERY NAME COUNTS! Only if we have people’s support can we apply for funding to pay for it. If you’d like to help us with any aspect of applying for funding please get in touch with Andrew ([email protected]).

Local 134 Wallingford to Goring – bus service saved

Please note the termination of the current ‘Go Ride’ Wallingford – Goring bus service on Saturday 28th January.

After unsuccessful approaches to other local bus operators to take over the route, Mr Mike Ward, a Goring resident, has set up his own new company, “Going Forward Buses CIC”, to not only take over the route as of Monday 30th January, but also to increase the number of daily services. Two mini-buses have been purchased, drivers have been contracted, the service has been registered with the Traffic Commissioners and all other necessary arrangements have been made. The following timetable will operate from 30th January. Crowmarsh residents note the return journey is NOT via Crowmarsh.
