The next meeting of the Parish Council will be on Wednesday March 13th 2019. The Annual Parish Meeting will be on Wednesday April 3rd.

    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).


          Have you considered putting yourself forward as a potential Parish Councillor for Ingestre or Tixall ? We depend on local people taking an interest in what happens in our community. Whatever your background, local people standing as councillors can bring a wealth of knowledge and community understanding into the local team.

         Parish Council Elections will take place on Thursday May 2nd, but nomination papers will only be available on Wednesday March 27th and must be submitted by Friday April 3rd 2019. Current Parish Councillors will be up for election. It is important that we ensure that there are sufficient nominations to fill the vacancies or the election will be declared void and have to be rerun at considerable expense. Further information is available from the Clerk.



          HS2: We are meeting with members of Ingestre Golf Club on February 14th, after the Additional Provision plans have been received. Copies of the plans will be available for consultation at Ingestre & Tixall..

          The Parish Council would like HS2 to provide a footpath along the edge of the fields opposite Ingestre Village from the entrance to Manor Farm & the Dower House to Home Farm corner, to provide a refuge for pedestrians and people with prams using the roads. In addition we are asking for a permanent roundabout at Hoo Mill crossroads although this could require street lights.


            The County Council Broadband Officer has told us that the 109 Cabinet at the Crematorium Traffic Lights is still being commissioned to serve St Thomas Priory and the houses near the traffic lights.. As regards Holdiford Road  they appear to be connected to Milford P5 and will remain so as there is no further work planned. As additional funding becomes available it will be allocated on the “next best value for money” basis in line with the national framework requirements. At the moment we cannot see any additional funding coming out of central government to complete the final 5%. Instead the government are banking on the forecast that over the next few years, approx. £550m should be returned to the programme from BT through the gain-share mechanism, which will be reinvested to get the nation to 98%.


     Planning Applications: The development at Brancote farm no.18/29007/PAR has been withdrawn and the applications to move the Listed Phonebox at Tixall are still awaiting  decisions. We have been notified of a planning application ref.  S.19/01/437 W at Brancote Sewage Treatment Works for Installation of an motor control centre kiosk, two polymer kiosks and a cake silo at the SE end of the site, comments are required by the 25th February, see


    The County Council's Countryside and Rights of Way Panel has noted that the evidence submitted by the applicant and that discovered by the County Council is sufficient to conclude that a Public Bridleway which is not shown on the County Council’s Definitive Map and Statement is reasonably alleged to subsist from Hoo Mill crossroads to the A51 with a width of approximately ten feet.        


Welcome Pack for New Residents: If you are new to the area or know of any other newcomers, who have not already received a pack, please contact the Parish Clerk.
