BEECHCROFT ANNOUNCE OPENING OF NEW FOOTPATH AT JOYCE GROVE

BEECHCROFT ANNOUNCE OPENING OF NEW FOOTPATH AT JOYCE GROVE The new owner of the former Sue Ryder Home at Nettlebed has announced that a footpath which is parallel to the High Street will be open to the public from the end of this month.  A planning application granted to Sue Ryder for the re-development of the former hospice and surrounding buildings includes a requirement to provide a footpath running from the entrance gate close to the High Street on the eastern side of the village to the western side of Joyce Grove near the Nettlebed Creamery.  The planning conditions stipulate that the footpath needed to be opened prior to the first residents moving into the apartments. However, Beechcroft Developments has decided not to wait for the planning application to be implemented and are aiming to have the footpath open by the end of June once security fencing is in place.  This approach was communicated to a meeting of Nettlebed Parish Council on Tuesday...
