New park rejected

PLANS for a new pocket park in Byfield have been rejected.

The decision was made by members of the planning committee of Daventry District Council at a meeting on Wednesday last week.

The pocket park was proposed by Manor Farm Developments in Milton Keynes to be built on land off Church Street in the village.

The plans were turned down because there was no information provided about how the applicants proposed to deal with the listed wall on the site.
