Update on Church field site

You can read here the letter from the planning consultants re their proposals for Church field, as read out at the Parish Council meeting on 10th July.  Unfortunately it is not possible to show the layout – this was A2 so can’t be scanned and uploaded, and electronic copy was not forthcoming.

The Parish Council’s reply can also be viewed – it appears beneath the letter from DLP Planning.
