Barnes Cottage development

A Full Planning Application has been submitted for the 51 housing units on the field behind the Farmers Pub. This is the largest development proposed for the village in over 40 years (see Plan). More details of the application and links to the MSDC Planning Portal are given on our News page. Whether you support or object to this proposal it is likely to go ahead so it’s important that you have your say and comment.
