If people do want to oppose this particular development the first thing to do is to attend the meeting this Friday in the Village hall - if you attended the last meeting and left an email address you will have already received some information. At this meeting we can determine what we need to do.

For people who did not attend the Parish Meeting this Monday a decision was made to ask Community First to do a survey of the village residents to find out what affordable houses the village needs. A document was shown defining affordable housing - I cannot get a copy at the moment. A series of questions was asked by the attendees about who would get the houses - the outcome was less than clear save it would be a bidding system with people with the most need getting them with little or no guarantee that it would actually villagers that would get them.

It was also clearly stated that if affordable housing was needed for a village exceptional rules could apply to land adjacent to the exiting permitted development boundary. (The proposed development is not adjacent to the boundary)
If land like this were to be identified it could be purchased and affordable houses be built on it. (It has been indicated that the proposed development would be 50% affordable housing and this would be its justification).

On a separate note I do feel it would be helpful that if people are writing messages on this forum they use their name as anonymous messages are rather hollow. If we are to fight this we need to be united and clear about our opinions however difficult that may be.

I agree with the fishlock,
We need to stand together to oppose what I believe to be a scheme totally wrong for our village.
We need to make our views clearly and emphatically to the parish council, and Malvern Hills council, that’s is what democracy is all about.
If the vast majority don’t want this development we need to sing it from the rooftops so that we cannot be ignored.
We also need to support the WAG in both its words and actions so that we have a co-ordinated approach and be prepared for a long slog.
