REVEALED - AN EXCITING OPPORTUNITY!

OLD PARSONAGE FIELD –  A PERSONAL PROPOSAL FROM A WELL-KNOWN OBJECTOR A plan for the development of Crondall’s most controversial field is at last published. Crondall Councillor Norman Lambert revealed to fellow Councillors at the December Parish Council meeting, what is believed to be described by Peter Hall as an exciting opportunity for the village to maximise a central green space that can be of benefit to the wider community whilst setting an example of how low impact sustainable buildings can provide solutions for a highly contentious area. The Old Parsonage field plans show that a mixed use proposal can provide a long term income for the land owner whilst being a valuable resource for the village and local school. A supportive mix of active older residents and the interaction of school children should provide a valuable setting for knowledge exchange within a picturesque village. THE DETAIL Proposed Eco-Pods 10x4m single storey sustainable buildings, energy efficient, low impact with green roofs, solar panels and small manageable external spaces. These could be purchased with ground rent for land owner to form an income and area service charge. Access road to sustainable homes for the elderly or affordable housing for the young within the village. Wild life area of mixed native species and habitat pond for use by village school, leading into a wild-flower meadow following the access road and retaining the open character and views. Possible location for bee hives etc. Open space area for play, picnic tables, village fêtes etc., summer stalls selling local produce to raise funds for additional village activities and green space management. Open space area for horticulture practice, gardening and vegetable growing by school children. Area is a combination of raised beds & ground level borders to facilitate multi group users and abilities. An in-out road to ease morning traffic for school drop off's as well as providing additional parking spaces for the use of coffee shop, education centre and crèche. Parking spaces for use with education centre, crèche and coffee shop. A single storey sustainable green roof building that can accommodate a multitude of uses that is required by the village. This could house a village cafe / coffee shop aiding community interaction and further income for the land owner for its mixed use activities.
