Parish Council Vacancy

There is currently a vacancy on Dunholme Parish Council that can be filled through Co-Option.  If you are interested in joining the Council, then please contact the Clerk for more information.

A meeting of Dunholme Parish Council took place on Wednesday 13th February 2019.

Cyden Homes development, Honeyholes Lane

A planning application was submitted a couple of years ago to erect 49 new houses on the field next to the village hall on Honeyholes Lane.  This application was granted and the field and granted application were taken over by Cyden Homes.  Shortly after, a further application was submitted to WLDC to increase the amount of new dwellings on this site to 64 houses which was refused at a planning committee meeting by WLDC officers.  2 further appeals were submitted trying to overturn this decision, both of which were refused thanks to the Dunholme Neighbourhood Plan and a number of Councillors (both Parish and District).

Following this, last year Cyden Homes decided to appeal directly to the Secretary of State to increase the amount of dwellings.  The Parish Council once again submitted their comments, as did District Councillors in the hope that once again the appeal would be refused.  However, on this occasion the Secretary of State has upheld the appeal and is allowing the additional 15 houses to be built.

A meeting between the Parish Council and West Lindsey shall be arranged to discuss the next steps as the Council believe that this should not have been allowed and want to know what and if any further steps can be taken to prevent this from happening.


 2019 Annual Community Awards

Do you know someone who goes above and beyond what a neighbour should do?  Is there someone that looks after a particular part of the village just because they want to? If you think there is someone that deserves to be recognised, or a group of people who help to benefit the village then let the Clerk know and they could be chosen as the 2019 Community Award winner.
