Burton Green HS2 on BBC Coventry and Warwickshire

Burton Green and the HS2 compensation scheme was featured on BBC Coventry and Warwickshire Radio on 10th April.

There was a report by Jenny Scott (CWR reporter), and an interview involving Martin Beckett (a local resident) and Baroness Kramer (Minister of State for Transport).

Jenny Scott's article, titled 'The Village Where Everyone's Moving Out', can be seen on the BBC website, here:

The interview was in two interview sections within a 3-hour radio broadcast. The complete broadcast can be heard here:

The interview sections about Burton Green commence at 7 minutes into the program, and at approximately 1 hour 7 minutes. You can advance the cursor to those positions. That repeat is available only until 15th April.

Coventry and Warwickshire Radio would still like to hear from anyone in the village who lives beyond the 120 metre Voluntary Purchase Zone. E-mail: Jennifer.Scott@bbc.co.uk

There is also a related article in the Coventry Telegraph, titled 'Big increase in HS2 compensation approved as Ministers prepare for Commons showdown', here:

Vacancy for a Parish Councillor

The Parish Council currently has a casual vacancy for a Parish Councillor. This is a wonderful opportunity for someone who is interested in their local community, would like to represent the residents of Burton Green and become involved in current issues affecting the parish.  Anyone who is interested in becoming a Councillor can find out about what is involved by contacting the Clerk to the Parish Council, who will be able to send a copy of the eligibility criteria.  There are also two very informative booklets entitled ‘All about Local Councils’ and ‘It takes all sorts’ which can be found on the ‘Publications’ section of the Parish Council website (www.burtongreenpc.org.uk).  
Anyone wishing to apply should check they meet the eligibility criteria and write to the Clerk of the Parish Council with their expression of interest by 28th April 2014, with a copy of their CV and a short statement about why they would like to be considered for the role.
