A petition is running at the Post Office to oppose any further development ouside the present and new structure plan. In a Packed Public meeting in October the Parish Council supported the Borough Councils proposals for future development in Filby going forward to 2030. We need your continued support because as we suspected there is a rush of applications before the new plan becomes inforce. We have had 60 houses in Filby since May 2015 a 19% increase, with a further 43 seeking planning permission. The Parish Council are looking at developing a Neighbourhood Plan to run along side the new Borough Plan, and a meeting was called for Wednesday 20th March 7.30pm in the Clubroom. The plan going to take at least 2 years to produce and we need action now, so please continue to write in with your objections to further developments. Outline Planning Applications (06/19/0079/O) for a futher 6 dwellings to be built in Ormesby Lane and 06/18/0656/F for 9 dwellings off Green Lane. Download the plans and advice as to how to object at the Parish Council website .

Filby Village Screenings are held at 2:30pm and 7:00 pm on the third Tuesday of each month. Tickets, priced at £4.00 per person, are available, at the door. Our film on Tue 21 May is 'Green Book'. When Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighbourhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on “The Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger as well as unexpected humanity and humor—they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime. More
