Happy Christmas to you

1431738_89324925We wish everybody in Four Marks and Medstead a very Happy Christmas and look forward to working with you next year to stop unsustainable development and protect our local wildlife.

Next year is going to be another challenging series of planning applications and appeals as Four Marks is “basically
‘under siege’” because of an “‘open season’ attitude for developers” – a quote from the Parish Council in a recent Parliamentary Report on NPPF published by the Government just before Christmas (a classic way to bury a critical report).

On the positive side we understand that good progress is being made on both the Neighbourhood Plan and EHDC’s Local Plan which are our best (only) hopes, under the current Government’s policy, of stopping developers making vast profits at the expense of countryside and wildlife.

You are all fantastic and we wish you a very Happy Christmas and New Year.
