Tonight was the Annual Parish Meeting of the parish of Old Buckenham. There was a larger number of villagers than usual in the audience to hear reports from the county councillor, district councillor and the chairman of the parish council. There were also updates on the progress of the village's neighbourhood plan and on the building of Chapel Green school.
The main interest though was in the proposal to establish a Green management scheme involving the Parish Council, the Green Right holders, the Lord of the Manor and other village representatives.There was plenty of discussion and a vote to support this proposal was carried with no one dissenting (48 for and just one abstention).
A huge step forward after many years of infighting between various vested interests.
|All those in favour...|
