Communication with Chartford Homes; Development Belle Vue Road

It has become apparent that there were several organisations and individuals communicating with the developers which was causing confusion. The intention is to have a clear line of communication between residents and Chartford Homes and it was agreed with Chartford Homes that they would communicate with the Parish Council.

Chartford Homes have agreed to send details of the Schedule of works when they have the details available.

To clarify the Parish Council Clerk is the main point of contact, and details will then be passed on to all Councillors.

This does not prevent you writing to them directly if you wish to do so, but it is easier if there is a single point of contact. Moreover, it is helpful if the PC can be kept updated, if you do write can you copy to the PC. This will help monitor any issues as they arise.

Please contact Stella Walsh directly if you wish.
