At the Hadnall Parish Council meeting of 14th September 2020, it was RESOLVED to seek the approval of the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities & Local Government to apply for a PWLB loan of £50,000 over the borrowing term of 30 years for the purchase of the land know as Saracens car park. The annual loan repayments will come to around £2414.

It is not intended to increase the council tax precept for the purpose of the loan repayments.

A report on the proposed purchase and loan application is filed below. 

If you have any views or opinions you wish to feed in, please contact the parish council directly, via the Clerk.



Following the popular reopening of our young children's play area on the village green, we are now turning our attention to the recreational needs of older children.

We are setting up a working group to come up with ideas and suggestions. If you would like to be involved, please contact the Clerk who will put you in touch with the working group. We need young people too! Please take part and tell us what you really want.

The Parish Council is a consultee in the planning application process, not a decision maker.

When a planning application is submitted to Shropshire Council, they ask for the Parish Council's comments and give a deadline by which to submit them. The Parish Council's Planning Committee then considers the application carefully and applies the "material planning considerations" that are set out in the National Planning Policy Framework. Any opinions from the occupants of neighbouring properties are also considered. The final comments are sent in to Shropshire Council but they alone make the decision on whether or not to grant permission for an application, not the Parish Council.

The Parish Council is impartial at all times and never applies personal views or opinions in the decision to either support or object to any application.
