Recent Additions - Planning for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, review of planning applications and discussions regarding safety at the A30 Plusha junction.
The United Kingdom’s long tradition of celebrating Royal Jubilees, Weddings and Coronations with the lighting of beacons will be continued to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. Beacons will be lit throughout the United Kingdom on Thursday 2 June 2022. It is planned to light a beacon on farmland owned by Mr Phillip Medland as one of over 1,500 beacons to be lit throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories. On the evening of Saturday 4 June there will be a Barn Dance at North Hill Village Hall with a marquee, music and BBQ. On the following day a Big Jubilee Lunch is being planned in Coads Green to be held at the Village Hall and Playing Fields. In addition, it is proposed to give a specially minted commemorative coin to all children in the parish under the age of sixteen. Details of the coin can be viewed by selecting Notice Board under the Parish Council tab.

Update on the closure of St Torney's Church.
The Church of England Church Commissioners have written to North Hill Parish Council with a copy of a draft Pastoral (Church Buildings Disposal) scheme prepared by the Church Commissioners providing for the preservation of the closed church of North Hill St Torney by the Churches Conservation Trust. The Churches Conservation Trust (“the Trust”) shall be responsible for the care and maintenance of the building and both old and new graveyards. The Commissioners have agreed to publish a draft Pastoral (Church Buildings Disposal) Scheme providing for the closed church of North Hill St Torney to be vested in the Churches Conservation Trust (CCT) for care and maintenance. The Commissioners statutory advisors, the Statutory Advisory Committee of the Church Buildings Council (SAC) have indicated in their early advice of 17 December 2018, that St Torney’s is of outstanding quality and of high significance overall and that the church ought to be preserved in the interests of the nation and the Church of England by vesting it in the CCT. The church is richly decorated and has some significant memorials. It is a positive and dominant feature within the street scene and wider landscape. The richness and significance of the church interior means that it would not lend itself to internal subdivision.
