PARISH INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENT PLAN (PIIP) - We need YOU to come forward with ideas as to how we can best utilise the income we are receiving from the new developments in the village.
We have a duty to spend CIL income on providing, improving, replacing, operating or maintaining infrastructure that supports the development of the PC area or anything else concernced with addressing demands that development places on the area.
The Parish Council have come up with a few ideas but we need more. It is YOUR village, so please engage with us so we can make improvements for the benefit of everyone. Please refer to both the December and January editions of the Palgrave Star for some initial ideas. You can bring your wish list to the next meeting of the Parish Council, relay them to any one of our Councillors or email the parish clerk. All ideas welcome!
