Parklands Farm development – update

After comments were received to the Parish Council regarding the Smiths lorries causing congestion whilst reversing into the site from School Lane, the Parish Council has raised these issues with the developer Newland Homes. They have agreed to widen the access to allow the majority of lorries to drive in, and when any do need to reverse in, a Banksman will guide them in every time.

If you see any other preventable issues on School Lane due to the construction traffic, please contact one of your Parish Councillors.
