Rolleston Neighbourhood Development Plan Update

A meeting was held between ESBC, Rolleston on Dove Parish Council and Neighbourhood Development Steering Group on Monday 5 December 2016 to discuss the future of the neighbourhood plan in light of the college fields decision. Minutes from the meeting can be read here (with comments and amendments made by Corinne O'Hare, ESBC).

College Fields

The Parish Council has received this official notification (pdf document) from Department for Communities and Local Government (dated 10 November 2016) that the Secretary of State has allowed the appeal and has therefore granted outline planning permission for 100 homes on the land we know as College Fields.

Further details can be read here and under the planning section of the village website.

Both the threat and the reality of large scale developments within the village and surrounding areas is never far away. Read more about it in the planning section pages.
