The Farm, owned by the Parish, has for many years been generating a modest annual income for the Parish. It has been agreed to support a small development of housing on the Farm Yard aimed at improving the overall ‘benefit’ the Farm can bring to the whole community….
Update and Next steps: The Parish Council has appointed Greenoak Housing Association to build and manage the proposed new, subsidised homes on Peaslake Farm yard. The homes are expected to be available for rent in summer 2020 but possibly, spring 2021. It is envisaged that there will be 8/9 new homes and a couple of parking spaces per home. There will be soft landscaping/gardens above the farmyard. The fields will remain in agricultural use. The design of the homes will be sympathetic to the existing style of houses in the village.
There was a public meeting in October 2018 where residents had the opportunity to ask questions of Greenoak Housing Association and their architects. Two designs were displayed and the feedback was extremely positive. I final decision on the favoured design will be made at the January 2019 Council meeting, which will take into account the feedback from the public meeting. There will of course, be an opportunity for further public comment at the planning application stage.
