Lifestyle Properties have renewed their application to build 14 houses in the field opposite the Community Hall. The Community Council have stated again the view that these should not spoil the attractive southern aspect of the village at this point – a view supported by the Public Inquiry Reporter. With regard to all housing developments the Community Council have stressed the importance of limiting housing expansion to 25% over ten years – the aim of the Local Plan, which has been endorsed by the Reporter. Planners and the Reporter have, in fact, agreed that there should be only half this scale of expansion in the first five year period up to the end to 2007.
