  • Preserving Our Past

    The churchyard of St Thomas a'Beckett, and its Chapel-of-Ease at Felliscliffe hold within them a wealth of local heritage via their Memorial Inscriptions and Burial Records. Why so many infant deaths, what was happening in society at the time of burial, was there a war or an illness affecting the population? How many local families are represented there and are there any well known names - or not so well nown but with an interesting story attached? Is the design of the Memorial interesting in terms of its art work or the language used?This section of our website aims to list phtographs of all Memorials, together with their Inscriptions and Church Records so that such questions may be answered by browsing or searching both now and in the foreseeable future - even long after some inscriptions may have faded beyond readability.

Town and Country Planning (Permission in Principle) Order 2017

Permission in Principle is a fast-track alternative route for obtaining planning permission for housing-led development on Brownfield sites. It separates the consideration of matters of principle for the proposed development from the technical detail of the development. The legislation is relatively complex; however, I thought it would be useful to highlight some of the key criteria for you, as you may receive a consultation request for this type of application in the future.
