Re: Totally wrong site for New Village Hall

If someone needed an ambulance or fire engine whilst an event is on I hate to think what might happen. Earlier this week a delivery van got stuck trying to get past parked cars.

Re: Use by folk from outside the village

Ruby red makes a good point. Even with the hall used as much as it, thankfully, now is we struggle to balance income and expenditure because of our aim to keep the rental costs to groups as low as possible. We have been accused of being greedy in wanting to raise more revenue. As a charity we cannot...

Re: Is this a consultation?

I realise that being cynical suits your cause but this is a genuine consultation process. As we've said many times this project started 10 years ago but got nowhere because there were no sites available. Now we have an offer of a site it cannot be a surprise that this has given us a catalyst to kick...

Re: Totally wrong site for New Village Hall

We are going to do a fresh search of sites as we committed to do at the open evening. Previous approaches to land owners in Marsh Lane were not fruitful but we will try again. The traffic issues would also be even more difficult on Marsh Lane than Park Lane but that will all be taken into account. T...

Re: Totally wrong site for New Village Hall

I too would like to know where they are. The hut on Hill's site is well outside the village and with all the controversy around Hill's various planning applications I understand they are just not willing to discuss it but we will try again. Where are the others? We would genuinely like to know. As t...

Re: Totally wrong site for New Village Hall

I think this is a very good point for discussion. My personal view is that we should be open and generous to folk from outside who want to visit our area and should let them use the car park. We may need some signage restricting its use on days when there are events on though.

Re: Totally wrong site for New Village Hall

If you were at the Public Meeting last Thursday you will have heard the Chairman of the Steering Group explain that floodlighting is not an option . The planning aut...

Re: First Funding Received

It was particularly encouraging to hear how supportive the Area Board are for our project. They know the village and hall well and understand its problems. They are very keen to help villages improve their amenities and support local initiatives.

Re: Totally wrong site for New Village Hall

Nothing that we do is going to make any difference to whether housing development takes place on this or any other land. Why not colour in the whole of Wiltshire? Its a great shame that people are making up stories without any facts or evidence. One person says that the car park is going to be flood...
