    Woodhall Estate Exhibition

    Recently, residents may have received a flyer from the Woodhall Estate advertising an exhibition which will be hosted by them in the village in May. The exhibition is regarding possible housing development in Watton-at-Stone on their land.

    In response to this, the Watton-at-Stone Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group would like to make the following statement:

    "The Parish Council and Neighbourhood Plan steering committee wish to make it very clear that they have not 'engaged' Woodhall Estate to put forward land for development. The Estate team has had a few meetings with the Neighbourhood Plan team but they have not had any greater degree of access to them or insight into their emerging thinking than anyone else, and is certainly not being preferred over any other option. The process of deciding whether any land (and if so, which plot) might properly be released from the greenbelt remains very much under discussion. F ollowing the public consultations, professional advice on the greenbelt issue is being sought. No decisions have yet been made. The Woodhall Estate has apologised for this misleading error in their flyer."
