A Planning application to build 14 homes on Glebe Field has been submitted. The Parish Council strongly object and are working with the Save Glebe Field Community Group to return this field to community use. Village participation will be key to our success.

Many villagers feel very strongly that they are being deprived of their bequeathed asset, they remember the village fetes, the scout activities, the dog shows and the bands that played here, they are concerned about the future viability of the village hall and do not understand how an environmental charity can cut down trees to build predominantly large properties that our community does not need. (Not identified in 2011 housing survey or current Dover Plan)
Julys meeting took place successfully in the village hall. Our DDC councillor and some members of the public joined us remotely and it worked. – Full virtual meetings are no longer considered legal. Normal Service is resuming 13th Sept in the Channel rooms and we will be allowing remote access via GOOGLE MEETs details click here
We were setting up a community group to try and get FTTP (faster broadband > 100MBps) in the village) – click here for details and how to register. Unfortunately at a less than 1% uptake, we are unable to progress unless there is a significant increase in interest. We would welcome a champion from the village to drive it forward and canvass more interest, with our support of course.
We have added 8 village walks – click here and expand or download a safe day out. Have you tried all our circular routes? We need to keep beating the bounds and hopefully soon we can arrange a village footpath walk event again (with scones and coffee) If you think we are missing a path, let us know, we have a few years yet to update the definitive map – but it is a long process.
