Charfield Parish Council will be hosting a liaison meeting with the Crest Nicolson developers in early September, to discuss issues arising from the construction of 106 homes at the Wotton end of the village. Although this is not a public meeting, it is the best platform for engaging with the developers in order to raise parishioners concerns and find solutions to issues as construction continues. The Parish Council already has a number of agenda items, but please contact the Clerk if there is anything you would like the Parish Council to cover at the meeting. Likewise, a liaison meeting with Bellway Homes is being sought.
