One thought on “Meeting to be held to try and stop housing development

  1. Perhaps the Parishioners of Wickersley should start a Neighbourhood Plan in order to determine where they would like their houses building (amongst other things). The Neighbourhood Planning Bill going through Parliament at the moment is strengthening the Law around Neighbourhood Plans, I believe.
