At Monday’s full council meeting, OPC was asked by Hart DC to consider the covenant at Palace Gate behind the Cross Barn that currently provides free weekend parking. Full details are available here. Given that this covenant is under discussion between Hart DC and the land owner, making it commercially sensitive, OPC was asked to consider the value and alternatives under a confidential agenda item. OPC is well aware that parking is an important consideration for the Cross Barn, but also that additional parking in the village is consistently raised as important issues by residents and businesses.
Whilst discussions progress between Hart DC and the land owner, OPC has asked Hart DC to properly promote this parking and will keep you informed.
Please see the Minutes from the September meeting for an update, item 136/17.
