A report from Colin Hall on Beacon event – photos to follow:
The Armistice Day Beacon, lit at 7 pm on Sunday 11th November at Sellet Bank, was a tremendous success. Well over 120 guests, after enjoying drinks and barbecue at Sellet Hall, made their way to the summit of Sellet Bank to witness both Lady Kimber and Eric Pelter light, what can only be described as, the most impressive conflagration in the Lune Valley!
Blessed with fine weather the concerted joint effort from the PCC, VH Committee, PC and individuals too numerous to mention more than met expectations with a grand total of £1050 being raised by donations for the Help for Heroes charity.
The organisers would like to thank all those involved in contributing so much time and energy to help commemorate such an important occasion.
Colin Hall, chair of the Parish Council, is asking for feedback from residents on the updated planning application for Whittington Farm. Please, could residents give feedback, either publicly via the post on the village blog, or privately to Colin via email: Sellethall@hotmail.com
We’ve just had a PC meeting where the developers interested in Edwards land were present. They have, as you may know, applied for outline planning permission with alterations to the original scheme, in particular to the play area ie. it’s been omitted but still want our support.
I have agreed to get soundings from residents within the next couple of days before committing PC in any way so do you mind putting something on your sites inviting comments in order that we can get an indication of what people feel on this.
Proposals are that the play area will be omitted, the scheme layout altered to accommodate garages for many units and the finish and design of the dwellings slightly modified.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
For more details on the planning application, please see this post on the village blog – many thanks to John Keegan for collecting all this information.
A planning application has been submitted for the change of use of land for the siting of 7 holiday lodges with associated access track and installation of a package treatment plant. The site is land to the west of Sellet Hall/Biggins Lane.
