A Neighbourhood Plan has been prepared, for Filby, which will help to influence future development of our parish. The plan is around 40 pages and contains all the detail and context to the policies. Download Plan Public consultation, on the Plan, was completed on 20th September.


Development at Ormesby Lane

Despite being refused by the Parish Council and Borough Council Greenfields Properties Ltd, have submitted another application for 15 houses coming of Green Lane. If anyone objects to this application, number 06/20/0327/0, they are asked to write to the Borough Council Planning Department at the Town Hall, object online on the Borough website or drop a written objection into the Post Office for the attention of Cllr. Adrian Thompson. The last application had 76 objection letters. Objections must be in by August 20.



The Playing Field Committee Has authorisation to re-open, from the Legal Department of GYBC, after relaxation of Covid-19 regulations. It has conducted a review of potential ways and means of operation under present restrictions. This has meant a revision of the Hire Agreement, which must be agreed to and signed by all potential hirers, either regular or irregular. This may be downloaded here.  All activities, as they resume, will be published, here.
