For Forever...A Legacy

In anticipation of the Church Commissioners sale of Court Farm, the Parish Council has been exploring ways to protect the landscape in the village centre and village use of the land for key events. We are grateful for all the photos and contributions in response to our call for evidence on how the Village has used the land over the years; however we recognised that any formalisation of the situation was going to be a difficult, protracted and expensive process.

We are therefore delighted to announce that with the very ready cooperation of the new owners Evelyn and Guy Timpson of Court Farm and the Church Commissioners, we have negotiated a Covenant, in perpetuity, on Court Farm, to retain the open nature of the land in front of the house and to allow up to 5 village events and the Christmas lights. This Covenant is forever and will ensure that the open land in front of Court Farm remains free of both buildings, further fencing and is available for important village events. We have consulted with the village groups and the Parish Council has taken responsibility to ensure that event organisers are appropriately insured etc.  The Parish Council has refrained from widespread publicity to protect the interests of all parties involved during purchase negotiations, but now that the Exchange and Completion of purchase has been achieved it is appropriate to make a more public announcement. The covenant will also be available on the Parish Council page of the village website.

The proposed WS13/1 footpath diversion is a separate issue and the County Council will be running a formal consultation in due course.
