Villagers love the Links

Posted on Sat, 20/05/2017 - 9:30am

Eighteen willing volunteers helped cut back areas of overgrown scrub and brambles in The Links on Sunday 14 May to improve the appearance of Buriton’s secret valley and help local farmer, Susan Shone.

Due to wet weather in recent years and new regulations affecting farmers, Mrs Shone had been unable to keep the Links looking as beautiful as she would like.

 

More kissing encouraged on walks between Buriton and Petersfield

Posted on Sat, 20/05/2017 - 9:27am

Volunteers from Petersfield Ramblers, in conjunction with the HCC Countryside Team, have recently replaced two awkward stiles with kissing gates

In recent years Buriton Parish Council has removed over 20 stiles on popular rights of way in the area and now, thanks to the generosity and hard work of the Petersfield Ramblers Club, the section of the Hangers Way between Buriton and Petersfield will soon be stile free.

The volunteers have recently installed a new bridge as well as two new kissing gates – and plans are in hand to replace the last two remaining stiles in June.

Consultation on Buriton Village Design Statement

Posted on Tue, 11/04/2017 - 9:51am

The South Downs National Park Authority (SDNPA) has published the community’s draft Village Design Statement for public comment.

Village Design Statements (VDS) are prepared by local communities. They describe the character of the landscape and built environment of their parish and include guidelines to help ensure that this character is conserved and enhanced in any new development in the area.

Buriton has had a Village Design Statement since 1999/2000 (one of the first to be produced in the District) and it was updated as part of the community's Parish Plan exercise in 2008/9. The Parish Council has been advised by the Planning Authority that it now needs to be kept up to date again.

Update about War Memorial project

Posted on Tue, 04/04/2017 - 2:39pm

There was a comprehensive update about the War Memorial project at the Parish Council meeting at the end of March.

Everyone was reminded that the idea is to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War with something to complement the existing war memorial and give thanks to all those from the community who have helped the country in times of conflict.

A range of entries had been received by the November deadline and parishioners had had a number of opportunities to comment and cast their votes in December and January.
