As a concerned resident of Horncliffe '“ I am wondering how long the dispute over the boundary and the school field is going to carry on. It has been rumbling on for the last two years and is definitely dividing the village and the matter needs sorting out fast.
The small development on Tofts Lane of six affordable two-bedroom bungalows bordering the school field are now built. They are a practical, attractive and hopefully interesting addition to the village – three of the bungalows are occupied, three remain empty due to this matter being sorted out.
I was a parish councillor for 11 years but decided to resign four months ago due to what I considered inappropriate handling of this dispute.
