New Housing development grows quickly
The Parish Council received a report from Councillor Cotgreave about the progress of the new Taylor Wimpey development following one of his regular site visits with the building contractors
Since the Christmas/New Year break, the footings for another 16 houses have been completed and sales are going well. There is already a small group of new residents installed in their new homes and the number will grow considerably over the next few months. The Parish Council welcomes the residents and hopes that they enjoy their new lives in the Parish
Muir Housing Association has been appointed the managers of the 44 affordable housing units that are to go on the site, news which pleased the Parish Council which had had dealings with the Group in the past. It was agreed to contact Muir Housing to discuss with them how the allocation of units would be done. The Parish Council feels it is important that local families get priority when the houses are being allocated, enabling family contacts and village links to be maintained. A meeting will be sought as soon as possible.
The general state of the footpaths and verges is still unresolved and it seems as though the newts, or at least their advocates, Natural England, are holding improvement works up. The actual nature of the problem with the Newt Access Tunnel is unknown, but all parties are seeking to get this resolved so that work on the pavements can start. Other tidying-up work is still need but Taylor Wimpey had responded very quickly to remove a lot of wind blown litter following a recent complaint.
