Bellways College Field Development Meeting

On Monday 12 March despite the village flooding and with many concerned residents feeling under the circumstances it better to stay at home, 24 members of the public attended the public meeting, Jane Bucknall, the Parish Council Clerk, took notes on the presentation and the questions which are published here (pdf document). Amongst things discussed was the controversial access arrangements. Having already submitted and had accepted a Construction Management Plan with the outline application that had ruled out the use of Fairfield Avenue many will be somewhat surprised to discover this was mentioned as a possible option being considered.

The Parish Council hope to arrange another meeting to discuss this.
