Now You've Read It - We Need Your Thoughts

Published: 06 April 2021

By now you will have received through your letter box our 20-page booklet setting out the key results of the residents’ survey we carried out last year. Now we need your thoughts …. your thinking on the survey and on what others in the parish have said. What do you want your Parish Council to be doing?

The District Council is still expecting us to take far more houses (maybe 400 or more) than you say you want. You, the residents tell us you will only accept a much, much lower number. As a Parish Council we are fighting to get that lower number. If we lose the battle, the District Council and/or the developers will take over and plan the parish for us. In fact, developers are already attempting to do just this.

We wish to hear from you. Our Annual Parish Meeting on Thursday 29 April is where you can have your say … or simply email me with your thoughts and ideas.
