The Parish council will continue to work in partnership with SPADE and others to try and ensure that the negative effects on the Parish are minimised.
In September 2017 the Parish council completed the purchase of the Village Green. Sincere thanks to Paul Wooldridge for his dogged determination to see the Village Green acquired as a community asset and to those parishioners that donated funds.
The upkeep and maintenance of the Village Green is now the responsibility of the Parish Council and over the coming years we will be investing in it to ensure it can be used by the Parish and becomes a haven for wildlife.
Boars Hill Speed Limit Reduction
Following representation from a number of residents regarding road safety along Foxcombe Road, the Parish Council submitted an application for the speed limit to be reduced from 40 to 30 mph. This was implemented towards the end of 2017.
