    Keeping you informed about the current status of planning issues

    The promoters of this website are supportive of small scale housing developments, that comply with the policies in the submitted/withdrawn version of the Neighbourhood Plan, aimed at meeting the local needs of the parish, but object to major speculative developments that would be damaging to the rural character of the village and its surrounding countryside.
