As a direct result of SHDC’s Village Housing Initiative which aims to create sustainable (i.e. they should not compromise the future) rural communities , in accord with the Taylor Report (2008), 9 potential sites were originally offered to the Parish Council for consideration, since revised to 10 sites*. The approximate locations of the potential sites at St Ann’s Chapel (5 red pins, 1 green pin) and Bigbury on Sea (4 yellow pins) can be viewed here in two separate images – hint: two, separate, single clicks on the images will enlarge the picture to full size, eventually. The sites will be publicised at the Parish Council meeting on Wednesday 14 th September (see EVENTS). Future public meetings and publications in Bigbury News will provide ample opportunity for community input to the site selection process but, als0, see below.
* At the Parish Council meeting of 14th september, Andrew Davies confirmed that he will be offering a third site, nearer to the road and adjacent to his barn, as marked (green pin) on the revised photograph, below. This now makes a new total of 10 potential sites for consideration.
To express your views about these sites, please join the discussion FORUM on Affordable Housing on the BIGBURY PARISH COUNCIL page of this website. However, at the PC meeting of 14th september, it was agreed that the approximate location of the 10 sites would be shown on maps to be published in Bigbury News along with a voting form for parishioners to list their preferences in priority order (see Minutes of PC meetings in DOCUMENTS in the Bigbury Parish Council GROUP on this website).
