The Chair of the Committee stated that "I have studied the application carefully & am aware many issues raised are not necessarily relevant to planning policy however it is clearly controversial with objections registered by both HCPC & FPC.From consultee feedback there is clearly a difference of view between statutory & third party comments & therefore I recommend the application be determined by the DMC" This was referred to the Chair of the Committee because the Planning Officer was was "minded to permit whilst the parish council objected". THE DECISION WAS “PERMIT”

A public meeting to discuss the survey and the way ahead took place place in the Memorial hall on Wednesday 9 January 2019
VILLAGE SHOP AND POST OFFICE At a meeting, held as part of the Parish Council meeting on 21 January, Mr Jacob (the owner of the post office) explained that Royal Mail was planning some reorganisation of the post sorting arrangements in the Bath area and this would require him to shut down the sorting part of his post office duties. This would entail him having to operate his post delivery service from Bath with inevitable time consequences which would take him away from running the shop and post office. The viability of the business would depend to a larger extent on the proceeds from the shop (and post office). It was agreed that this should be widely explained to the village (and other adjacent villages affected) so that representations could be made if appropriate and people should recognise the importance of using the facilities that the shop provides.
