Please accept this letter as confirmation that Devine Homes PLC will not be in a position to attend tomorrow night’s (January 22nd) Parish Council meeting. We apologise for this late notice.
As you are aware Devine Homes PLC is keen to support Bolney Parish Council in the delivery of the Extension of Batchelor’s Field – Policy BOLA2 of the Bolney Neighbourhood Plan. We are willing to work with the Parish Council to enable this land to be used for the public benefit, and deliver recreation facility improvements to the village.
Linked to this, Devine Homes PLC are also promoting land north and south of Ryecroft Road for residential development, through the emerging Mid Sussex District Council Site Allocations Document.
In December 2018 site management works were undertaken to part of the land north of Ryecroft Road. These works were undertaken following extensive surveys of the site, and by an experienced approved contractor. The works did not require planning permission and took place on private land.
On Thursday 17th January 2019 we were made aware that a Tree Preservation Order has been made on the land north of Ryecroft Road.
In light of the above designation, it would be premature to visit the Parish Council. We remain committed to a positive dialogue with the Parish and will be in touch in due course when we can confirm our attendance.
