October 2017: Land behind Tweddle Close

As part of the development of houses on Tweddle Close an option was granted to the Parish Council to buy the strip of land behind the houses for a nominal £1. The Parish Council intends to complete this transaction and a letter has been sent to the immediate neighbours for comment on our proposal of using the land for a community woodland – a copy can be downloaded here. More details can be found in the PC minutes.
