The following text was agreed at the full meeting of Charfield Parish Council today 12th December 2017 and forms our response to the Regulation 19 Consultation into the West of England Joint Spatial Plan.

A Home Library Service Volunteer is being sought to deliver some reading material to a borrower in Charfield. The borrower previously received deliveries via the Mobile Library, but as this service is no longer available Yate Library is looking for a local person to become a Volunteer.
The role would involve regular visits (usually 4-weekly) to the borrower to deliver new reading material and to return used books to a South Gloucestershire library.
Home Library Service Volunteers will need to fill in an application form, provide two referees and have proof of Right to Work in the UK. As the Volunteer will be visiting a vulnerable adult, a DBS Check will also need to be carried out.
If you feel you can help and spare some time please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or the Clerk for more information.
Please see below the draft Minutes from Charfield Parish Council’s November 2017 meeting.
Just to note the consultation period for the JSP has now opened and runs until 10th January 2018. The consultation home page can be found here https://www.jointplanningwofe.org.uk
It’s really worth taking some time to read the full JSP before deciding how to respond. Don’t forget the local meetings with FFC too.
Note especially for Charfield (Policy 7.9) the JSP talks about providing *or contributing to* a strategic transport package.
