3. Public participation (standing orders suspended). Members of the public had noted that there has been some recent discussion between the Parish Council and Wessex water regarding the reservoir site. Consequently, they asked for a clarification of what had been discussed. This was provided by Cllr Wood, who explained that the council had responded to the opportunity to enter into discussion which might help to influence the type of proposal which is eventually put forward. She stressed that an initial proposal had been rejected by PDC and nothing further had yet been put forward. She also encouraged interested residents to join the Neighbourhood Planning Group.

Mr & Mrs Carswell outlined their proposal (item 9 below). He also responded to Council questions regarding concerns expressed in a letter of objection from a resident of Foxhills Crescent which had accompanied a petition containing 14 signatures of residents of Foxhills Crescent.
