NEWTON VILLAGE COMMON LAND

The Building Inspector has given approval for work to be carried out over the Newton ‘Village Green’ at Picket Mead. Work will include the digging-up of the Mead in order to lay electricity and water services for four new houses to be built within the grounds of Picket Mead House which is owned by Carrington Moore Estates (Andy Moore).

They also plan to lay a ‘grasscrete’ road across the Mead to the four new properties

Various protests have been held by local residents to no avail.
