Parish Council Land Purchase Survey

The Parish Council requests "in principle" support from the village to buy some land on Fiskerton Road (see plan below) to give access to the river and allow for the creation of community spaces.  We are looking to borrow up to £300,000 over 25 years to cover the purchase of the land and additional works.

The real cost is unknown at present as we had not been quoted a price from the agent of the Bowser Estate and we also need an independent valuation if the residents give us the go ahead to investigate the feasibility of such a purchase but the maximum quoted would increase the Council Tax (on average) by around £10.00 per year which is 19p per week. 

We would be grateful if you could complete the reply slip in the Cherry News, so we can ascertain your level of support.

Return it to either: the Parish Office at 16 High Street, or the Cherry Tree Pub by 10th Dec 2014.   Or complete the survey on the right of this page.

A prize draw from returned slips with your name and address on will take place at the December full council meeting with a prize of £50.  Thank you. The Parish Clerk
