NOVEMBER 2014
FAULKLAND GREEN From your
comments you are as pleased as we are
with the work done to the two horse
chestnuts on Faulkland Green. A
sobering thought though: in the
opinion of tree surgeon James Nash,
each tree is nearing the end of its life.
We are getting a second opinion and
will keep you posted. In the medium
term the look of the Green may
change.
PLANNING In rejecting the appeal for
three houses and garages at Townsend
Farm, Faulkland,the inspector accepted
that Mendip has a 5-year housing
supply and so any development outside
the limits will be strictly controlled. The
inspector says that ‘The Old’ Chapel’
and ‘The Barn’ mark a clear division
between built-up village and open
countryside. To allow development
would harm the character of the
village.
TEMPORARY POST OFFICE The Village
Hall Committee and the PC have agreed
to support two weekly half-day Post
Office sessions in Faulkland Village Hall
for the next year. It is hoped the post
office will be open for business this
month. Please support this experiment
with your business.
ALLOTMENTS The PC is considering if it
can afford to plough and/or rotavate
the land (plot markers would have to be
removed and replaced) in a final
attempt to attract allotment holders.
Would you be interested in a plot if the
land is properly prepared?
