Jan 4th 2023 - Planning Meeting

A revised planning application for the development of Massey's Folly was on the Agenda at a Planning Meeting of the Farringdon Parish Council which was held in All Saints Church on Wednesday 4th January.

There were a considerable number of visitors including Mark Kemp Gee, from the Hampshire County Council & David Ashcroft, from East Hants District Council at the Public Meeting which dealt with the three minor applications before moving on to the Folly Application.

A FPC report will be available shortly but a number of visitors, particularly those living near to the site, were complaining about the water emerging from the exit and the siting of the two cottages which had been left exposed to the weather since the site was abandoned by the original builder.

There were a number of concerns expressed about material brought in to raise the site level and the general state of chaos outside and inside the constructed areas.

The Farringdon Parish Council have now replied and the text can be viewed here

Parking Concerns in the village

Following concerns from many local residents about parking in the village the Parish Council would like to encourage residents to utilize their own drives and garages before resorting to parking on the public roads and if they do have to park on the public roads that they ensure that they park with care and attention to minimize the impact on their neighbours.

With Thanks Your Parish Council
