Planning Matters

At a TDC Planning Committee meeting on 20 March, District Councillors voted unanimously for enforcement of the breach of planning and have given 28 days from the service of a Breach of Condition Notice for the fence to be removed. There is no right of appeal.

Issues of interest

The fence across the village hall car park has been removed following the service of a Breach of Condition planning notice on Trustees. The Trustees have placed an article in Country News and they pose the question 'What would you have done?' If any of our parishioners have a view on this, please email the parish clerk with your comments.


The Parish Council wrote to the Trustees on 3 June requesting that the village green be restored to the condition it was before the fence was erected. They were given 28 days. The Trustees failed to take any action and therefore the Parish Council have cut the grass to enable the community to enjoy this facility which is held in Trust for their benefit.


The Trustees have written to the Parish Council requesting a refund of monies allegedly paid to them in 2013. Click here to see their letter and here to see the response.
