The Staplegrove Annual Parish Meeting was held on 11th May 2022 in the Village Hall, Ian Talbot, chair of Staplegrove Parish Council reported on the activities of the Parish Council in the last year. His report includes an update on the North Taunton Development, the changes in local government that directly affect the future of Staplegrove Parish as a separate entity from the proposed new Taunton Town Council, the proposed electoral boundary changes that could put Staplegrove Parish in a Parliamentary constituency with Minehead and Tiverton rather than Taunton Deane.
He reported on this year’s work in the Grove by the councillors and some volunteers which included tree planting to replace the tress that had to be felled and the creation of bug hotels. The newly purchased speed indicator device has been trialled and will be sited at five points around the Parish. Finally, he gave thanks to his fellow councillors and to those who help in the community. The meeting also heard reports from the Staplegrove Trust, The Parish Paths Liaison Officer, Staplegrove Community Group and Staplegrove Youth Football Club.
