There will be an open forum where you will be able to ask questions to our parish councillors, who up until now have steadfastly refused to engage with parishioners on this subject.
This is one of the very few opportunities you will get to have your say - please make the most of it!

26th July 2007
Added press release of 26th July 2007, concerning the extradorinary parish council meeting.
25th July 2007
We feel that the Parish Council has not adequately represented a large proportion of the parishioners as regards the proposed wind factory development. To the best of our knowledge they have known about this proposal for at least 2 years and STILL refuse to discuss the matter at recent meetings and have hid behind “procedures” to dismiss the subject. They have also refused to meet with members of your local action group (ie FLAT) and seem to be treating us with contempt.
We have now learnt that there will be an extraordinary general meeting held at the Jubilee Hall on Friday the 27th of July at 7:30. We understand that the current Chairman is standing down and a new Chairman will be elected at the meeting. It would seem likely that the new Chairman will be one of the original Parish Councillors and based on the Parish Council’s previous track record they may well yet again fail to grasp the strong feelings of the local parishioners. It would therefore be desirable to show them exactly how the local community feels by turning up in force for the meeting, although we may not be able to voice our opinion regarding the wind factory because they have managed to keep it off the agenda yet again! However just your presence will not go unnoticed by them!
16th July 2007
A Parish Council Meeting will be held tonight at 7.30 in Marshland Village Hall.
18th May 2007
FLAT will be holding a meeting at Tilney St Lawrence, starting at 7:00pm. For further information please contact the secretary.
