Woodside Development Proposals

Posted: Mon, 14 Jan 2019 13:47 by Carolyn Jennings

At the Parish Council meeting on 7 January 2019 Parish Councillors expressed deep concerns and total opposition to the decision of the Amber Valley Borough Council Planning Board that has resolved to be mindful to grant planning permission for residential development at Woodside. The Parish Council is bitterly disappointed with Amber Valley Councillors who look set to approve a scheme that is contrary to several policies of the recently adopted Crich Parish Neighbourhood Plan, and in complete disregard to the views of the Crich Parish community. The Parish Council is looking into any possible viable course of action and will consider the matter again at the next Parish Council meeting.

Crich Burial Ground works

Posted: Mon, 14 Jan 2019 11:23 by Carolyn Jennings

The Parish Council has authorised the removal of the excess spoil that has been dumped on the lower part of the Burial Ground, so that the area can be levelled off, seeded and then consecrated.

The removal of the spoil will start on Saturday 26th January and continue through the early part of the following week.

Apologies for any short-term inconvenience this may cause, but the work is necessary to create more Burial space.
