Redcliffe Homes

Public question time was attended by over 20 residents, representing the working party opposed to the development at Wheathill Lane, making their case that the Parish Council should totally oppose the planning application for a housing development on land adjacent to Wheathill Lane. The Parish Council’s response to the revised application has already been submitted which recommended refusal in its present form but acknowledged that if further changes were made, it could provide benefit to the village. The Parish Council have not heard from the majority of residents within the village and would welcome any feedback.
