Suspension of neighbour notices of planning applications

The following notice was received from the Canterbury City Council Planning Applications department:

In light of the coronavirus and the need to enable our staff to work from home, the County Council has temporarily suspended notifying neighbours of planning applications submitted to the County Planning Application for decision. Whilst we are able to do so, we will continue to advertise applications via a site notice in the vicinity of the application site and where necessary a press notice. Details of live planning applications are available to view on the Councilā€™s website.

You can search for planning applications on the Council website: https://www.canterbury.gov.uk/info/20014/planning_and_building/232/search_and_comment_on_planning_applications/1

Cleaner required for Bridge Sports Pavilion

Bridge Sports Pavilion is owned by Bridge Parish Council. It is let out for village and wider events. It is managed by Philip Wicker, resident of the village and former Clerk to the Parish Council.

It is used currently for a number of activities:

  • Football matches at the weekend (Sundays but occasionally Saturdays)
  • Art Classes
  • Toddlers Playgroup
  • Childrenā€™s activities during school holidays
  • WI events
  • Parties for people of all ages
  • A base for sporting and fundraising events on the recreation ground
  • As an overflow for the village hall

The work, which can be completed in 2 hours per week, consists of:

  • Sweeping and mopping the floors throughout the pavilion
  • Ensuring the toilets and urinals are clean and fit for use
  • Replenishing toilet rolls and handtowels (all provided by the Parish Council)
  • Wiping surfaces in the kitchen area and cleaning sinks throughout
  • Window and mirror cleaning
  • Bin emptying
  • Wiping walls and showers of the changing rooms
  • Informing the Pavilion secretary of any issues requiring attention

Timing:

  • The pavilion is currently heavily used on a Sunday morning and needs to be cleaned and ready for use at 9.00 am on a Monday morning.
  • There is less need for regular weekly cleaning from June-August each year

The work can be carried out at any time on a Sunday afternoon or evening.

This job would suit someone who has cleaning skills and experience and who is free on a Sunday.

Payment (Ā£10 per hour) is made monthly by cheque on submission of an invoice to the secretary (Mr Wicker).

All equipment and supplies are provided.
