Futures Forum: Policy-makers and the Public
And now the village is to face a 'super inquiry'.
This is the FFFF homepage:
‘Super Inquiry’ scheduled for Feniton
The Planning Inspectorate has agreed with EDDC that the fate of Feniton’s green spaces should be heard at one giant Super Inquiry. This event will take place in the Bowling Club starting at 10.00 on Tuesday 4 January 2014, and will run for two weeks.
Watch this space for the latest news on time and place.
The Inquiry will hear submissions from each developer (Wainhomes, Strategic Land Partnership and Feniton Park Ltd) who, between them, are trying to build up to 235 more houses in the village. Feniton residents will be welcome to come and express their views at the start of each day’s proceedings.
A public meeting to discuss this major threat to Feniton’s way of life is being held at Feniton Primary School on 4 November 2013 at 7.30 p.m.
