EHDC Planning Committee Disconnected from Reality ?

Chawton Parish council successfully lobbied to speak at the recent recent South Alton planning meeting that was to decide on "The largest development Alton has seen for 40 years" according to their chair, cclr Burridge.

Chawton Parish Council takes a balanced view on planning - some is necessary to support the growth of the country and control housing costs, but conversely it has to be "right" for the area and include a good balance of stock from affordable housing through to higher end housing - hence catering for the various needs of the community and it must include the right mix of services as well as houses - after all we all need schools, shops, water, electricity and the Internet for example.

Fireworks Feedback 2014

We hope everyone enjoyed the Village bonfire and fireworks on Sunday evening. This was the first time that we have had to take the decision to re-schedule due to the weather and it shows the power of the Web sites, social networks, personal networks and local radio.

We would like to hear your feedback, both good and bad, please take a minute or let us know your views, so that we can make any amendments to next years event.

For those who are interested, the reason for the unexpected small gap in the middle of the display was due to a couple of fireworks that had got a little damp and decided not to play ball. So, for all the planning, mother nature still shows who's in charge.
