Parishioners might be aware that the owner of Stone Arrow Farm is making a retrospective planning application for a business servicing and selling commercial vehicles on his property. This in addition to the planning permission granted last year for a waste transfer station and materials recycling facility associated with a skip hire business.

The new application can be read here.

The Parish Council will be submitting comments as part of the consultation but the Wychavon District Council Planning Committee also like to have comments from individual residents. These can be made on the website by 17 October.

Speed Limit on A44

Our thanks to all those who signed the petition; there were over 300 signatures from Peopleton and over 200 from Drakes Broughton.

We have now received a response. Unfortunately, the County Council will not reduce the speed limit. They consider that it is too small a stretch of road and that the road markings, small islands and signs are sufficient.
