Welcome To Woolsery

Or Woolfardisworthy West to give the village its correct title, but we think Woolsery is a little more friendly.

Woolsery is set within unspoiled rolling North Devon countryside with wonderful coastlines and country walks, and has a heritage going back to the Doomsday book and beyond. The heart of the village was built around the Norman Church and has grown over time into a thriving community with something for everyone. Our Village School is one of the best in the area, and we have a pre-school group know as Sunflowers. We hold annual events that the whole village gets involved in such as the Woolsery Village Fayre, The Weekend of Open Gardens and the Woolsery Show, as well as various local Clubs and Societies to suit all ages, many of which are held at our award winning Community Hall.

Cllrs:   Edmonds, Turner, Ashworth, Medd, Heywood, Gammond and Bryant.County Cllr Robin Julian, Alison Boyle and other members of the public.

2.0              Apologies

No apologies received

3.0              Public Comment Session

3.1          At the previous meeting a tree was reported to be down on the road to Bucks Mills. This has      now been removed, with the power cable being reinstated. Surveys have been conducted,           therefore it is hoped that where the road is falling away into the stream will be fixed.

3.a       Presentation by P Hamilton on Farmers Arms community asset bid, plus Q & A.

 

The Community Asset Register

  • On the 8th January 2014 an application was submitted to Torridge District Council requesting that the Farmers Arms is listed on the community asset register. This was supported by 170 residents within the Parish.
  • Torridge District Council confirmed on the 5th March that this has been successful.
  • Despite the Farmers Arms being added to the community asset register, it does not mean that the community has a right to purchase the Farmers Arms, it remains owned by Mr Lindsay.
  • Whilst listed on the registers, the Farmers Arms must remain as a community asset and cannot be redeveloped.
  • Mr Lindsay has the right to appeal eight weeks from the 5th March 2014. Two weeks remains for this period, Mrs Hamilton checked on Monday and no appeal had been lodged. If Mr Lindsay does appeal, the Farmers Arms will remain on the register during this process. If the first appeal is lost, there is another four weeks where another appeal can be lodged with an independent body outside Torridge District Council. The whole process could take another 18 weeks.
  • If Mr Lindsay wins the appeal then the restrictions are removed and the Farmers Arms could be sold or subject to a planning application.
  • If Mr Lindsay is unsuccessful the Farmers Arms will remain on the register and restrictions will be in place for the following five years.
  • If Mr Lindsay decides to sell the Farmers Arms, Torridge District Council must inform the Parish. The Parish has 6 weeks to decide if they want to purchase and pub, followed by 6 months to raise the funds and make an offer to the owner. Mr Lindsay cannot accept offers from others within this period. If at the end of 6 months the funds cannot be raised etc, Mr Lindsay will be unable to sell the property for another 12 months.
  • There are many caveats, for example if Mr Lindsay is declared bankrupt the Farmers Arms can be sold on the open market. If he decides to keep it within the family, the pub still remains on the register.
  • There are various options available with funds from different charities and funding organisations. It was considered that the Parish could create a Trust and offers shares with a minimum value of £250. Each shareholder would have one vote in the decision making process.
  • There are concerns that the process could go on, with no short cuts being available to take.

 

The appearance of the Farmers Arms

  • The Parish is disgusted with the decay of the Farmers Arms. Letters have been sent to the Conservation Officer at Torridge District Council (Sarah Chappell).  
  • Torridge District Council has two options in order to get Mr Lindsay to maintain the building; 1) The Farmers Arms is Grade 2 listed and 2) The structural condition. Due to the building being Grade 2 listed the owner has a duty to maintain. Similarly Torridge District Council could carry out the repairs and recoup the costs at the point of sale.   If the building is structurally unsounds, building control can instruct Mr Lindsay to make the repairs.
  • Mr Lindsay was instructed to make the roof safe, but unfortunately this was carried out by using tarpaulin, which has upset the Parish.
  • There are concerns that the Farmers Arms will become a ruin, which then is demolished and redeveloped for a different use.
  • There is rising damp and has been no heating in the building since 2012. The ridge has now gone. A previous quote stated £18,000 to fix the roof, however there has been more damage.
  • It appears that Torridge District Council has not made any progress with the owner regarding the state of the building. In a letter Mr & Mrs Hamilton have requested that Torridge District Council should take immediate action in order to maintain the building. In order to put pressure on Torridge District Council, Mr & Mrs Hamilton encouraged others to write a letter, a copy is available and can be sent via email.

Questions and Answers

1)        Assuming the community acquire the Farmers Arms could it be ran as a pub?
          This would be the next step in putting together a business plan and cash flow. The           community must decide how to run it, but it is envisaged that there will be two full- time people as the managers, with people from the parish working part-time.

2)         Mr Lindsay has a mortgage on the property. It was questioned whether the bank             were aware of the state of the building. This was unknown.

3)         What would happen if Mr Lindsay waits for Torridge District Council to carry out the       repairs and then decides to not sell the Farmers Arms? Mr Lindsay would have to   apply for a premises licence, therefore presumably this would not be granted if there          were outstanding finance to be paid to Torridge District Council.  

4)         The next milestone is the end of the first appeal process (2 weeks). The Parish     Council has written to Sarah Chappell regards to essential maintenance work.     Torridge District Council stated that at the time they did not have sufficient funds in          order to carry out any repairs. Is there anything that the Parish Council can do? Mrs          Hamilton requested another letter. Action: Agenda item for the next meeting.

5)         Alison Boyle asked whether the Tourist Board and those affiliated, could have an             influence? Mrs Hamilton will look into this.

6)         How will the community be kept informed of progress? The best way of   communicating is through the Parish Council and on the notice board in the post    office. It was asked whether an email distribution list could be established. Mrs        Hamilton agreed, therefore interested parties should pass on their email address.

7)         At what point does someone declare the Farmers Arms as unsafe? Torridge District        Council would be responsible for this.

8)         It was also questioned whether the building had valid insurance and whether       Torridge District Council should look into this. It is very well having a mortgage on    the building, but does the insurance company know what they are insuring?

Summary

  • First appeal process to end in two weeks.
  • Woolsery Parish Council will write a letter to Torridge District Council.
  • Mr & Mrs Hamilton will contact the Tourist Board to see if they can influence
  • Mr & Mrs Hamilton will establish an email distribution list and continue to update the Parish Council and put information in the post office.

This has been an option put forward to the District Councillor, but         unfortunately was declined. It was questioned whether someone could act as an      intermediary, again this has been suggested, but not acted on.
           
            Cllr Edmonds agreed to write to him again, but unfortunately the last response form       the District Councillor advised the Parish Council to make a formal complaint, which at that time Torridge District Council was unable to progress.

Woolsery WI Update April 2013

We've had a number of new members come along recently and there's room for lots more - why not join us on 4 April at 7.30pm to hear from Jane Maynard, on India?

In recent week's we've raised money for the North Devon Hospice with a Knit-In, very kindly hosted by Wendy and refreshed by some fine cakes and biscuits. But the WI isn't all about baking - maybe you noticed us milling about the village a couple of Saturdays ago, in yellow tabards, picking up litter around the village and surrounding areas? We've also got a number of trips planned soon - opportunities offered to members range from lunches out and food fairs, to forensic science and canoeing...not on the same day, we hope. You can find out more about what we're doing and what we have planned on our website at woolserywi.wordpress.com
