Planning Application for the Barn
A change of use planning application had been submitted to turn The Barn into a day nursery. The deadline for comments was 31st March with the decision possibly being taken on 24th April. The CIC along with the Community Partnership want to see The Barn being used for the benefit of the Village and on the surface, a nursery might seem to fit the bill. However both groups objected on the grounds of a significant increase in traffic and all that this would entail.
The CIC Position
It should be stressed that if the issues of traffic, noise, poor road layout and parking for the nursery could be resolved we would support a new application. All of the documents relating to this case are to be found on the MSDC Planning website.
