(last update Thurs 20th December)

Well, it appears we've won! After packing out the
District Assembly in a show of strength and amongst bizarre scenes, the elected officials voted to defeat the plan to introduce parking on our Green. More details to follow in the blog posts.
Thank you for visiting our blog. We are campaigning to protect a small village green (Temperance Green) from being tarmaced over to provide more parking spaces.

You can watch our video and then vote (vote now closed) and contribute to the blogposts shown below (The most recent are at the top, or you can navigate with the links, also on your right, below the vote).

Why are we objecting?

This delightful green is a vital asset to our village and should remain as an open piece of land for the enjoyment of all.
- It is a well used, safe, informal play space for young kids, benefiting from being overlooked by adjacent houses
- It is an important element in creating the attractive character of this corner of our village
- It contains a variety of trees, some of which were planted as memorials to past residents and neighbours
- It forms part of the rural village setting to adjacent listed buildings
- It’s purpose has always been to provide an informal area of open green space for residents and visitors.

Voting Lines now closed

Not quite as busy as the X-factor, but the on-line vote finished with 50 votes cast. We'd asked "Do you think Temperance Green should be tarmaced over?" 90% voted "No way".
"Yes - Part of it" won 4%; "Yes - All of it" won 6%.
