Parish council to discuss new homes planned for village

Have your say

Plans have been revealed for up to 116 new homes in Byfield.

The plans have been revealed by Gladman Developments, which is already behind other controversial planning schemes in the district.

The homes could be built on land to the north of Woodford Road and Byfield Parish Council will be meeting next week to discuss the plans.

It will be held in either the main hall of the village hall or the bowls club pavilion and will start at 7.30pm on Thursday, September 11.

Anyone wishing to go along is asked to look at the parish council notice boards for the exact location.

This will be the regular monthly meeting of the council and other items will be on the agenda. A spokesman for the parish council said: “Please remember that the parish council does not make a decision on any planning applications but offers its’ views to the district council.

“A statutory notice should have been posted in the vicinity of Woodford Road (opposite Curgenven Close), The Causeway or Lovett Road.

“The district council no longer advises nearby residents of any planning applications close to them, so you have to look out for notices on yellow paper.”

Residents will be able to give their views at the meeting,
