Corona Virus update
The village is closely following the government advice concerning its response to Corona Virus.
The current advice involving social distancing means that most organisations and buildings are closed.
The current restrictions are in force until 2nd December. The current closures will be reviewed in line future conditions.
It has been decided not to hold any coffee mornings in the near future but this will be reconsidered at the beginning of 2021.
Just in case you thought nothing was happening with the Slyne with Hest Neighbourhood Plan we thought we'd give you an update. Following the Consultation about the proposed Plan the steering group have very carefully considered all responses and have been making appropriate changes. A heartfelt thanks to all who responded. We have produced a Consultation Statement recording all responses and explaining changes to be made as a result of those responses.
Lancaster City Council planning department then suggested we employ a professional consultancy firm to ensure the Plan meets all legal requirements. With the support of the Parish Council we have successfully applied for a grant of £4000 to pay for this. The Plan is now with the firm we have engaged to carry out the work. So hopefully not too long and we can publish the Plan and the Consultation Statement.
After that Lancaster City Council conducts a Consultation prior to appointing an independent examiner to review the Plan. Finally it's the turn of Slyne with Hest residents to vote on whether to accept it.
Any comments or queries please get in touch. We'd love to hear from you.
Martin Wakelin lead the remembrance. One wreath was laid by Martin on behalf of the churches, one by Mr Douglas Parker on behalf of the community and one by Cllr Stephen Jones on behalf of the Parish. Council. They were placed on the WWI commemorative seat outside the Memorial Hall and will then be placed as usual over the memorial plaques inside the hall.
Our Slyne with Hest is a rural village north of Lancaster. The village borders Morecambe Bay with farmland to the other three sides within the parish. The open green spaces with many mature trees within the village enhance the historic identity of this settlement and instil residents with an appreciation for rural life, the natural environment and a wish to nurture and protect these assets.
