Alderton Village Newsletter - August 2023
Note from Editor:
Hopefully children and parents are enjoying the Summer break and we have a sunnier August! Good luck and best wishes to everyone getting exam results this month.
Recently there has been a spate of door-to-door callers offering to power wash drives and roofs. The latest company is suspected to be bogus, despite smart leaflets. The advice from the police and Citizens Advice is to “use well-known known local companies who can provide genuine references and a land line number. Get quotes from more than one company. Even better if they have been recommended by people you trust & you can see examples of their work.”

1. PARISH COUNCIL NEWS
PROPOSED NEW DEVELOPMENT – Land East of St Margaret’s Drive [was 55 houses, now 48 houses]
We have received the very disappointing outcome to the Inquiry. The only scope to challenge the outcome would be through a judicial review and the Parish Council have said to Tewkesbury Borough Council that we would support them if they chose that route. Otherwise careful attention
needs to be paid to the detail of the full planning application. A village meeting to discuss the implications was attended by over 60 villagers.
PROPOSED NEW DEVELOPMENT- Land South of Dibden Lane [ 26 affordable houses]
There are still some reports missing so consideration of the application by Tewkesbury’s Planning Committee remains delayed.
