United Reforem Church Hall

United Reform Church Hall

The Church has agreed in principle to close in the face of the significant cost of repairs to the roof. The URC hall has been well used by the community for many years, and its closure would be a great loss to the village.

Members were asked for their views on the Forum to approaching the Council with to have the Church registered as an Asset of Community Value (ACV). This would give it protection from development or sale for a six month period in which the community (not the Forum) would be able to raise funds to purchase it.

Thank you to everyone who supported the Council’s consultation on the “Submission Draft” of our plan. More details are available here but that’s not all that’s been happening!

Outcome of Consultation on the Submission Draft Plan

Results from the consultation on the Submission Draft Plan are in! Many thanks to those who took the time to comment on the plan, particularly those who gave 100% support. However, there were some objections to the plan, particularly from developers and land owners who have their own ideas. The Independent Examiner, Rosemary Kidd, will ask for clarifications for any responses and objections, as necessary.
