Library Service: Town and Parish Councils are being asked by West Berkshire Council to consider a donation towards the ‘shortfall’ in funding to maintain the current level of library service – 8 libraries, the Mobile and At Home Service. Following discussion, Councillors have agreed to make an initial donation of £200 in order to assist with the cost of maintaining the mobile library service for residents. The position will be reviewed towards the end of the financial year.

The Great Plantation: The countryside officer at West Berkshire Council has written to all the landowners asking for evidence/information about the plantation and also permission to explore the woods. Five separate applications have been submitted requesting that different routes across the Plantation are recorded as public footpaths. One of the major concerns is how accurate the routes drawn on the application correspond with the informal routes drawn by residents.

Inkpen Parish Council meetings are advertised on the village notice boards and on the official village website in advance of the meeting - see . The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 30th July 2019 at the Inkpen Sports Pavilion at 7.30pm, subject to councillor’s availability. All Inkpen residents are welcome to attend.
