Car Parks

The Parish Council has received some letters of objection regarding the proposed extension to the Memorial Hall car park The various views and comments will be taken into consideration in detailing the final proposals. At this stage, the council will consult with all Parishioners and a decision will only then be made on whether to proceed or not.

Cemetery

The gate and signs have been installed at the Bridleway entrance to the Cemetery. Despite notices requesting ‘NO PARKING Access required at all times’ vehicles are continuing to park across the bridleway entrance and the Council would emphasise the fact that the bridleway must be kept clear for access to be available to not only the owner of the bridleway but also farmers and funeral cars.
