Greensands Appeal
Tuesday 28th February to Friday 3rd March
Commencing 10am Snells Hall
The application to build 75 houses at Greensands and Mather House
(planning reference P15/V2328/O)
was rejected by the Vale DC, and the applicant lodged an appeal
against this rejection.
The appeal will be heard by a government inspector.
The appeal is open to the public, and the presence of local residents
will help underline the strength of feeling about this application.
When the appeal was postponed in November, the inspector said that
local residents would be given a chance to speak at the beginning
of the appeal (Tuesday 28th February, 10am).
To re-inforce the strength of local feeling, please come to Snells Hall
for 9:30am, with placards (fine to use the same ones as last time!)
In November we had an excellent turnout, which was noted
by the appeal inspector.
Please put this in your diary and come along to help prevent
unsustainable development around our village.

Church Services - Sunday 5th March
9:00am Holy Trinity, West Hendred, Morning Prayer
9:30am St Mary's, East Hendred, Sunday Mass
