A last minute request has been made to the Parish Council for the Developer to present plans to the next meeting on 3rd September.
When questioning the urgency we have been informed that they wish to make an Application by the end of September and they intend mailing villagers with details of their proposals in the next few days!
Despite the fact that the Parish Council have had no discussions with the Developer since January 16, plus an invitation to see how proposals were proceeding from the Peak Park in March – we are now told an Application is imminent. We do not consider this proper community consultation.
Please feel free to attend Wednesday’s meeting at 7.30 in the Bakehouse where we will hear for the first time about the latest plans.
