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.

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.
