New Hall, Village Green and Development

NEW DARSHAM VILLAGE HALL & DEVELOPMENT

The Darsham Village Hall Management Committee are pleased to confirm that the land adjacent to the Village Hall has been sold to a Developer who is Sunbury Homes (Darsham) LLP.

This means that the development to build a new village hall together with a village green will go ahead shortly. The Developer will begin preparation of detailed plans for submission to the Planning Department for Full Planning Approval as soon as possible.

At the same time the Developer will be meeting the conditions of outline approval granted previously for things such as Archaeological Survey etc.

One of their first jobs will be to provide a new road access and site splay lines will be put in place for this which will require alterations to our existing hedge around the Hall. Vehicular access to the side of the Hall will not be possible but pedestrian and disabled access will be maintained at all times via the existing foot paths and entrances.

The existing Hall will remain and be available for all our users until the New Hall is finished and we will then exchange the old for the new. It is early days for exact time periods but we will keep you informed via the web site and notice boards.
