Latest News on our Open Space
We are very disappointed that the updated proposal for the open space below the cemetery 'St Nicholas Meadow' is little changed from the one which the Council's Planning committee rejected earlier in the year. FoFC consider the main reason was to give planners a chance to listen to more consultations as our spokesman urged and we have seen little evidence that they have done that.
