Re development summary/update
The below is a summary of developments plans for the village based on information given to the Village Community Council and from the SBC Web Site. In some cases more detailed information may be found on the SBC Planning Application Web Site –
Bearing in mind the numerous Developers involved it is the Village Community Councils first priority to get a Master Plan drawn up which covers all existing houses, new developments and road infrastructure/car parking facilities needed to support the future Newtown for the next 5, 10 & 20 years.
The next priority is to provide a village centre in line with villagers’ wishes which is sympathetic with local countryside and existing buildings. Priority will be given to pedestrians with adequate car parking facilities close to the shops. It is planned to include a larger Food Store and Health Centre however it is early stages and villagers will be kept in picture as various alternative designs are considered. Your input is vital !!
