The results of the Survey indicate that most regret the loss of the old historic inn [site pre: circa 1500] and later the family restaurant used as a community meeting place. A majority of the community respondents said they did not want a supermarket on this very small site with the traffic and parking problems it would bring.
Planning permission was granted in February 2014 for a Class A1 retail outlet during the drafting of this document.
The community wishes this central prominent brownfield site to be carefully considered for a family - friendly café/licensed restaurant/community hall/medical centre with sufficient parking on it, should it become available during the life of the Plan. If this were not commercially viable as a community usable facility, a small development of low rise flats with adequate parking would be acceptable in line with adjacent residential developments, subject to normal planning controls and conditions.
