Worswicks Farmhouse

Plans have been drawn up for two semi-detached dwellings on the site of the old farmhouse. As part of this, it is our intention to demolish the existing building as it is not viable to create a property from the existing shell to meet all the modern building regulations. The front elevation of two new dwellings will mirror the existing facade as this is part of the heritage of the village. (This is a similar philosophy to that used for the refurbishment of the Village Hall.) We will apply for detailed planning permission once the bat survey has been carried out and this is expected to be completed in May of this year.

Trust Property & Land

The Trusts ongoing maintenance programme continues. The old Police House has been renovated and a new tenant is now being sought. The Trust has granted an easement to the owners of Singleton Mill Barn to allow them to create a new and safer access to their home over Trust land. The Trust has also fenced off a small area of woodland adjacent to the school which has enabled the school to create a woodland classroom. Trust policy is now to review domestic and agricultural rents on a more regular basis to ensure they are consistent and affordable.

Thanks go to John Highton and Patrick Allen as well as all other volunteers who have given their time to help maintain the woodlands and new paths within Singleton Park. The Trust has donated money to the group to enable them to buy a small tractor and other tools to manage the woodland and paths more effectively. Since the group was started in 2016 a total of 600 new trees have been planted in Singleton Park. This includes 250 trees that were donated by the Woodland Trust.
