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).
