FEBRUARY 2013 - APPLICATION FOR DEVELOPMENT IN LITTLE LANE.
An application has been submitted to build a dwelling in the field to the left of Little Lane - shown in the foreground of the photograph. It would be builton undermined land and on the feeder stream to the ponds.
A planning meeting that will include the application for Little Lane will be held on Thursday 7th March 2013 in the Civic Centre's Council Chamber at 2.00pm.
Those against the application will be allowed someone to speak from the public gallery to outline their reasons for opposing it.
There is a strong feeling against this application in a site that has been designated Local Nature Reserve status, and has become a huge attraction for many people.
AFTER THREE ATTEMPTS, THE APPLICATION WAS FINALLY REJECTED ON JUNE 6th 2013,BUT ON AUGUST 17th WE WERE INFORMED THAT THE APPLICANT HAS APPEALED AGAINST THE DECISION.
THEN ON 11th DECEMBER 2013 - WE WERE INFORMED BY PLANNING, THAT THE APPEAL WAS DISMISSED,AND THAT THEY WOULDN'T ACCEPT ANY FURTHER APPLICATIONS FOR TWO YEARS - GOOD NEWS FOR ALL MEMBERS AND VISITORS.
SUPPORT OUR NEAR NEIGHBOURS AT BEAUFORT WOODLANDS.
MARCH 2013 - REPAIRS TO VANDALISED VICTORIAN BRIDGE ARE FINALLY COMPLETED.
In September 2009, many of the cast iron side posts of the bridge were vandalised and the bridge had to be closed for some time whilst repairs were carried out.
Last month, the damaged posts were replaced with decorative panels, manufactured by Design & Manufacture Limited of Merthyr Tydfil - to view their website, please click on the following link.
