78.15 Update of 48 Main Street boundary
The letter received at the previous meeting was with the Chair of the committee
and was reviewed at the recent committee meeting which the owner of 48 Main
Street attended and conversed with the committee.
It was recognised that some demolition work had taken place and the Village
Hall access used.
The Trustees noted two things:
• The owner had requested a formal agreement be reached allowing a better access
the 15ft access strip that runs along the wall of 50 Main Street.
• A request from the owner to purchase a small piece of land from the Trust, which
would allow a straight 15ft access.
After a discussion, it was decided that Trustee Alexander would seek legal advice and
would prose a letter from the Trustees to the owner, so that a formal agreement could
be reached about the use of the access and driveway, by contractors, during the build
process. To be reviewed at the next meeting.
