THE anger of a village resident on reading in the Eversden's village magazine. Tail Corn, that there were firm plans for the development of farm land has been fully justified.
These were plans which were for affordable housing - plans about which the resident hitherto knew absolutely nothing. His anger was not that of a Nimby. The anger was about a glaring lack of communication.
No one is against affordable housing.
At Monday evening's parish council meeting, with members of the public present, it was finally revealed that the report as published in the village magazine was incorrect.
You may also want to watch:
It should have read that there were "no firm plans for development".
This report had been prepared by a member of the parish council and prepared for printers submission by members of the family whose land is under discussion.

It was not the responsibility of anyone, but the parish council to point this error out.
This incident and others associated with it forced the decision that a public meeting should be called for all to air their views.
The error in the report as published was not revealed until after the public meeting had taken place.
What is this? An excellent example of village pump politics or democracy gone mad?
