LATEST -Pigeon Development Burstall lane & Loraine Way


Dear Neighbours…Over the last 18 months a small group of people have been working hard to bring to your attention the potential development of the land behind the Wild Man pub and allotments, known as the Pigeon Development or Burstall lane/Loraine way development. This team of people, along with the Parish Council also help fight the Hopkins Homes development that was refused earlier this year.   This week we received a revised application for the Pigeon Site, which we would again like to draw your attention too.

As a working group we still represent the community and our main aim is always to help the community comment on the Pigeon planning application.

For further information please visit the BDC Planning portal

Should you wish to object to the application:

Please complete one of the two enclosed objection letters:

Further objection letters are available at the village shop.

Please either post it to Jo Hobbs at the address on the letter or hand it into the village shop.

Points to consider:

• Its is outside the village boundary
• On a rolling valley hillside
• Cumulative development
• Increased traffic
• Valuable agricultural land
• Physically it is an urban development in a rural setting
• An unacceptably negative impact on the historical features in the village

Plans, an additional 32 documents are available online
