It didn't take much to persuade them to don the ice cream coloured outfits (well...

At the Grove Farm consultation this evening Durrants were arguing that a 2012 revision to Stradbroke's village design statement gave them the green light for their proposed development. Nobody including several parish councillors who were present could remember this but Durrants had a copy.

Village Design Statement 2003 - the forgotten 'Neighbourhood Plan'

Back in 2003 Stradbroke Parish Council published a "Village Design Statement". This was before it was possible to develop a neighbourhood plan.
