Planning update

Extra meeting held on 10th February to discuss an application for nine dwellings on land adjoining Church Farm Court. Parish council acknowledged the applicant had taken into account many concerns previously raised.

Lengthy discussion and public participation ensued. Taking into account the position of opposing any development of the site and the strength of neighbours’ opinions, the parish council voted to object.

The applicant has also appealed against the refusal for 20 dwellings.
