It’s the Infrastructure… Stupid Thursday, 26th July, 2007

I believe the key things that came out of the village meeting tonight were:

  1. The infrastructure of the village is going to have to be substantially updated and uprated prior to any of the proposed developments
  2. No-one wants the recreation ground built on.
  3. No-one really trusts the planning proposals as medium to long term residents of the village saw what happened on the St Mary’s Walk development – a total change from the original proposals.

Love to hear what anyone else made of it.

Next one will be on 11th July at 8pm at the Village Hall.

At the meeting about development on 27th June, a straw poll was taken, deciding an extraordinary Parish Council meeting should be convened as soon as possible specifically to discuss the proposals. When I hear when it is, I’ll post it.

Everton Village Expansion? Thursday, 28th June, 2007

Last night was the kick-off of the consultation by Mr Jonathan Pym with the villagers about the expansion of the village.

This is quick holding pattern write-up of the main points of the expansion. I’ll post the minutes as and when I get them. I have pictures of the proposals which I will use to make google maps of that I can safely publish on this blog without infringing copyright.

A summary of the proposals is (update, here’s a map):

  1. Between the end of 2008 and 2021, Everton grows from 180 households to 250.
  2. Up to five sites would be developed:
    • Manor Farm: 22 new dwellings, Manor farmhouse preserved.
    • 21 Sandy Road: 7 new dwellings. The farmhouse (Bakehouse) would be retained.
    • The ‘rec’ and the field behind it: 33 dwellings, a car park and a new village hall, plus moving the ‘rec’ to the adjacent field. The playground stays where it is.
    • End of the village going towards Sandy on the left: 8 new dwellings. Affordable housing.
    • The current village hall: sold for development.

Key phrases that came out of the meeting:

  • Affordable Housing – There are also a range of affordable home ownership options, including shared ownership (where a tenant rents part share in the property from a social landlord, and owns the remainder). The government has also attempted to promote the supply of owner occupied affordable stock for purchase, principally by using the land-use planning system to require that housing developers provide a proportion of lower cost housing within new developments. (from wikipedia)
  • Village Envelope – In a rural context, the terms town boundary, village curtilage or village envelope… circumscribes an entire urbanized area and is used by local governments as a guide to zoning and land use decisions. (adapted from wikipedia).
