Chiddgreen Spring Walk

Chiddgreen Spring Walk and AGM

A dozen people came out for a 2 mile stroll around the village. Afterwards we enjoyed  celebrating 20 years of Chiddgreen with cake at our AGM.

The Walk (taking in proposed development sites around the village.)

A warm and pleasant evening walk around the village, taking in some splendid views and catching a glimpse of bluebells in the woods.

We benefited from Christine Tebbot’s commentary about the progress and status of various sites around the village.  Did you know that the official village boundary (set in the 1990s by Waverley Borough Council) excludes some of the older properties that are actually right in the middle of the village?

We all agreed that this is nonsense. And looking forward to the opportunity to have our say in the up-coming  Neighbourhood Plan consultation.  More details on the Parish Website

Discussing the Chiddingfold Neighbourhood Plan

We considered the proposed site for a larger village car-park – the idea will be to extend the village hall and displace cars parked on the Green (hurrah!) to this site on Coxcombe lane. The pond will be landscaped and offer more habitat fro wildlife to flourish.

The open green space behind the homes to the north of Woodside Road is unlikely to be come a ‘Village Green’, but could be a dedicated open space, to enable the activities there to continue: keeping chickens ( see photo below – I am sure those are ducks…) and  space for children to play.
