Marina Development Drop In Sessions

As many will already be aware a planning application has recently been submitted to West Lindsey District Council for a marina and residential development to the south of Fiskerton Road in Cherry Willingham nearby its junction with Church Lane. Planning permission already exists for a marina on this site however the developer has submitted a new application for a new design with additional residential development to help fund the development.

Full details of the development can be viewed on West Lindsey DC's web site at:

Although Cherry Willingham Parish Council do not decide whether planning permission will be granted for this development the PC will be commenting on the development on behalf of the whole village. To assist the Parish Council in determining residents views regarding the development the Council will be holding two Drop In Sessions. Plans of the development will be on show at the Drop In Sessions and Parish Councillors will be present to discuss the development and to listen to comments from residents. 

The Drop In Sessions will be held on Tuesday 7th Nov and Thursday 9th Nov at the Millennium Hall at 16 High St, Cherry Willingham. The sessions will run from 6.30pm to 8.00pm so please feel free to call in at any time during the sessions.

Although the Parish Council will be commenting on the planning application it is important that residents also directly submit comments to West Lindsey DC using the comment form on the above link or by writing to Director of Regeneration and Planning, West Lindsey District Council, Guildhall, Marshall's Yard, Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, DN21 2NA or by emailing planning.customer.care@west-lindsey.gov.uk.

Summer Events

Have you got any good ideas for a summer event in Cherry next year? For the last few years the Parish Council has been running a Village Gala at the Community School.  However, it's time for a revamp and we have just had some exciting discussions about this with the Head of the new Pembroke Academy (formerly Cherry Willingham Community School). If you have an idea for a village summer event that would capture people's imaginations we would like to hear it.  It could be something you have seen work elsewhere or your own unique idea!  Please pass your suggestions onto the Parish Council via the clerk cwparishcouncil@gmail.com or any Parish Councillor.  If you would like to be involved in helping plan and deliver an event, please let the clerk have your details and we will get in touch with you.

Parish Council Email List
