Linton has a new website!
Bear with us as we go through and update the content, check the links and pictures etc .. it shouldn’t take too long. Then we will be adding new stuff, hopefully on a regular basis as we used to do
Would you like to help run this site?
We are looking for Linton residents who can help to update the site – editors, if you like. Extensive computer experience is not necessary, so long as you are reasonably comfortable using a PC and (for example) basic spreadsheets. Contact Jerry Whitmarsh or Richard Butters..
Have you nice photographs of Linton?
we are looking for good photos of Linton that show off the village, or one bit of it, for the beautiful place it is. If you have one, send it to the webmaster and we will consider it for addition to this site. We are interested in recent photos but also in historic ones.. when we have enough we might add a “Historic Linton” section!
A message from the PC Chairman:
To all Linton residents, and other interested parties:
As you may be aware, planning applications have now been submitted in respect of a development of 13 houses in Vicarage Field, and the provision of a parking space at the rear of the Village Hall. At my request, Alan Firmin Ltd arranged a drop-in event at the village hall to provide details of what is proposed.. this was scheduled for 18 July from 4pm to 8pm. If you weren’t able to attend, details of all the documentation submitted is available here: planning documents – the planning reference is 16/505401/FULL. The application in respect of the Village Hall car park is available here. As you may also know, I have never been enthusiastic about housing development in Linton of any kind. However this proposal is at the least more attractive than its predecessors, in several ways. It is also noticeable that of what little recent building there has been – the New House in Wheelers land, Redwall Barn, and Rose Court in Vanity Lane – all of these are occupied by folk who do contribute more than their share to the community life of the village. I have not decided how to vote when the time comes. I will make the best decision for Linton that I can, and vote accordingly, and I am sure the other Parish Councillors will do the same. In the meantime I am very interested to hear any views you may have. However I would say that the decision is not a one-sided one – and you should beware of any who think that it is.
Feel free to (politely!) contact me by email
