Parish Council August & September 2015: Hope Valley (Tas Valley Vineyard) and Laynes Farm Planning Applications 2015

Written by Brian Frith on .

'Hope Valley' planning application discussion and follow-up

Update 16th September 2015:

Planning Decisions re: 'Hope Valley' (Former Tas Valley Vineyard) and Laynes Farm.
 
At the hearing of South Norfolk Development Management Committee ('Planning Committee')  this afternoon, both of the recent applications concerning these sites were considered, and both applications were refused by the Committee.  Also, in both cases, enforcement action was authorised, with a one year 'period for compliance'. 
 
In the case of Hope Valley the applicant has indicated that he might submit another application for less development, but the one year enforcement notice will continue to run alongside that.  If the applicant appeals, there is a delay in enforcement pending the appeal.
 
In the case of Laynes Farm, an appeal has already been submitted because of an alleged delay in determination of the application, so today's decision by the Committee was to agree what the Committee would have said if they were making the final decision; this decision will be conveyed to the Inspector, whenever the appeal is heard.
 
The saga continues!

Parish Council Meeting of 16th April 2015

Written by Anne Rayner on .

The Annual Open Meeting of 16 April 2015 was well attended and reports were received from many of the groups, societies and clubs within the village. Of particular note for this year was the success of the Forncett Flyers village games team winning the “small village” category at the Village Games held at the UEA and the “outstanding” report from OFSTED for the school. Keith Fromings also reported on the defibrillator project, initially discussed at the annual open meeting in May last year. Following fundraising activities, the defibrillator was installed in the telephone box at the bottom of Mill Road in March  and is ready for use, should it ever be needed. A wide range of activities were represented, from the bowls club, to the allotment association, showing that there really is something for everyone and the community spirit is thriving.
