Rudford and Highleadon Parish Council




At the Council meeting , Rudford and Highleadon Parish Councillors:

·       learned from Councillor Burford about the District Council’s consultation on the Local Plan 2021-2041 and agreed to organise a separate meeting to respond to it

·       were updated on the District Council’s continuing plans to pursue enforcement issues regarding illegal building works in the Parishes

·       received a report on the site meeting to investigate erecting a bus shelter for northbound travellers at Highleadon turn, and agreed to make a decision on this matter at the November meeting

·       further discussed the possibility of clearing the area at the corner of Buttermilk Lane and planting trees there and on the south side of the B4215 north of the bus shelter, and resolved to apply for a grant for the cost of trees.  Councillors also agreed that such work should be confined to the area between the watercourse and Buttermilk Lane on the northbound side and to commit a maximum of £150 of Council funding towards the project. We would welcome views on this revised proposal before our next meeting at the end of November, when we will revisit the proposal.  If you want to e-mail comments, please send them to
