The Parish Council is objecting to "short-sighted folly"

The Parish Council is objecting to a proposed new development off Longmeadow Lane by Oakmere Homes. Their objections can be boiled down to the need to maintain separation between Natland and Oxenholme, the adverse visual impact on the landscape, the inability of the narrow village lanes to accept any more traffic, and the distance from the village centre – it’s the wrong direction in which to expand this settlement

In addition the proposed ‘amenity space’ is not needed in a rural village .

Another objection is the uncertainty about what lies beneath this site – limestone with caves – and where the water off The Helm goes. Click here to read the full letter of objection
