VILLAGE DEVELOPMENT INFORMATION

A number of residents have shown concern at the lack of activity to complete the village development and the Parish Council has received this statement from the developer

JME continue to be fully committed to progressing works as promptly and efficiently as possible, and work with all the stakeholders to achieve a successful and completed project.

 Work has slowed up over the winter months, however we are currently procuring suitable contractors to carry out soft landscaping works in Long and Short Meadow, this will be followed by laying the tarmac on the paths in these areas. The shortage of suitable planting stock is causing some difficulty, which is explained in more detail on the attached statement from Lockhart Garrett.

With regard to the work in the village square area of the site we are working through due diligence with funders and this has raised a number of legacy points that have to be worked through systematically before work can commence.

    Sorry, but clear as mud!

    Can someone (JME?) please explain ‘due diligence’ to the uninitiated among us.
    Who are the ‘funders’?
    What are ‘legacy points’?
    What brought this work suddenly to a halt?
    Who are JME accountable to for this work?
