The next meeting of the Parish Council will be on Wednesday November 14th.

    The next Parish Council agenda and minutes for the past 12 months can be found on our website at:   (or Google Ingestre with Tixall Parish Council).


Penny Brookes has had to resign as a Parish Councillor representing Tixall due to having to work away from home more in the future. We are grateful to all her work for the Council in the past, especially with regard to reclaiming 1,878 from Staffordshire County Council Legal Dept. over their mishandling of the purchase of the Community Land at Home Farm Court.

          The Casual Vacancy has been advertised, and provided 10 electors do not request an election (which would be very expensive) by Tuesday November 13th the vacancy can be filled by co-option at the Parish Council meeting on Wednesday November 14th.

          Currently Tixall is represented by Malcolm Sindrey, Anne Andrews and Nicholas Bostock, who live in Tixall Village, Hanyards and Tixall Lodge respectively.

          Please contact the Clerk, or any member of the Parish Council if you would be interested in being considered as a candidate for co-option. The main commitment is to attend the 6 bimonthly meetings at 7.30pm on the 2nd Wednesday in January, March, May, July, September and November, and to represent the views and interests of the local community of Tixall.


Members of the Parish Council were shown draft plans for possible additional land requirements for HS2 at their meeting with HS2 representatives on October 17th.These include using Mr A.Collier's land on the opposite side of Ingestre Road to replace the part of Ingestre Golf course used by HS2, and increasing the amount of land around the temporary roundabout at Hoo Mill crossroads to ensure 24/7 access to Ingestre.

As soon as details of the proposed additional land requirements are available, the Parish Council will receive them in hard copy for consultation, and a further cycle of petitions.

It has been suggested that we might be able to get an HS2 Community Grant to provide a footpath along the edge of the fields opposite Ingestre Village to Home Farm corner, to provide a refuge for pedestrians and people with prams using the roads.


     Planning Applications: Representations have been made on an application for a Brick wall and acoustic wooden fence with a brick archway in line with the Long Walk at Waterford House. No.18/29407/HOU. The variation of conditions on the previous application for new build at St Thomas Priory for Elan Homes Midlands Ltd. (mainly landscaping) is still awaiting a decision 18/28286/FUL.


    The Village Hall Trustees are still waiting to hear from the Borough Conservation Officer as to whether they can move the Listed Telephone Box at Tixall.


    The rearranged last Lorry Skip visits will be on November 10th, 9 10am near the corner by Home Farm Court, Ingestre and 10.15 11.15am at the Village Hall carpark at Tixall. Stafford Borough Council have offered their sincere apologies for the failure of their contractor to turn up in October.


    The Saltbin on the layby at St Thomas Priory has been removed by persons unknown so cannot be moved to the verge nearer St Thomas Mill, to discourage its use for litter and put it nearer to where the salt is needed on the road.


    The 1997 application from Martin Reay for an alleged bridleway between Tixall road and the A51 at Colwich (Hoo Mill Lane) will be considered at the County Council's Countryside and Rights of Way Panel on December 4th with a recommendation to allow it. Comments should be forwarded to by November 19th.
