The Chairman read out a report, received from Richard Windley, giving feedback following the public meeting about the proposed affordable rural housing scheme.  The report concluded the positive event was attended in the main by those seeking to register their, or family members’ needs for the homes.  It is believed the existing proposal will be over subscribed.  In analysis of those attending 24 were in favour of the development proceeding, with 2 against.

The chairman requested the clerk thank Mr Windley for his report and the Parish Council awaits further developments.
