New Email Update now available online

The Executive Commitee of the Lymington Society has decided in view of the ongoing coronavirus situation and the further lockdown, that now is the time to move to using Email Updates as the main way of communicating with members. This will enable us to communicate more often with members, and will save considerable costs having to be paid out of member’s subscriptions.

We would be grateful if any members who have not sent us their email address, now do so, in order that we can send them this, and future updates

We have just completed our first edition of this Email Update and it will be winging its way to all LymSoc members soon.

The Email Update can also seen here. LymSoc Email Update – November 2020

Delayed AGM to be Held online on Microsoft Teams on Monday the 30th of November at 6.00pm

After much delay, when the Executive Commitee hoped a socially distanced AGM might be possible, the latest lockdown and the likelihood of continuing restrictions, make this impossible. The Society has therefore announced that the delayed AGM will be held on Microsoft Teams on Monday the 30th of November at 6.00 pm

We are using Microsoft Teams instead of Zoom as it allows for a longer meeting than the standard 40 minutes of Zoom. Revised documents for this delayed AGM can be accessed here: Click Here for AGM Documents

Town Council rejects Alexandra Road development proposal

27 Nov 2014; land North of Alexandra Road
Lymington & Pennington Town Council last night recommended refusal of an application by Pennyfarthing Homes for a development of 95 new dwellings on a site north of Alexandra Road, which was released from the Greenbelt in order to provide much needed new homes, of which 70% are intended to be ‘affordable’ homes. At a meeting with residents, chaired by Cllr Rogerson, the council reached a unanimous recommendation to refuse the application following discussion and after hearing objections which Mrs Jill Vallance summarised on behalf of local residents. Nic King of the Lymington Society added that the proposed development failed on policy grounds namely it was out of character with its surroundings, had inadequate SANGS (accessible natural green space) provision and was not a ‘sustainable’ development. The developers, Pennyfarthing Homes, chose not to speak at the meeting other than to answer residents’ questions.

The deadline to make a comment on this proposed development is: 03.12.2014.
You can submit a comment online to NFDC at: http://planweb3.newforest.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=makeComment&keyVal=_NEWFO_DCAPR_189949.

ENDS.
