Parish Plan

Parish Plan & Affordable Housing: Approximately 90 per cent of all households returned forms. The analysis of villagers replies was held up by work on the B-17 memorial but a quick study of some of the major questions revealed overwhelming support for extending the Doorstep Green and improving the church to better meet the needs of the village. There is also support for affordable housing, if the housing needs survey reveals a need. Only 11 people were against having any affordable housing. However, while we were analysising the forms the government changed and the future of Parish Plans is in doubt. We hope to be able to use the data collected when Eric Pickles, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, announces his long-awaited replacement for Parish Plans.
