Community Hall

St Michael’s update: Chairman gave an update, including that no minutes had been published by the Town Council since the meeting in October, which was noted.

Planning Update

Mount Pleasant – There was discussion of the “Framlingham Liaison” meeting held with Persimmon Homes in December.  While several Persimmon personnel were present and invitations had been sent to members of the Planning Team, one member of the Town Council and a couple of new residents of the development, only one (very late) invitation seems to have been sent to any neighbour of the development and no invitation to the Residents’ Association.  This lack of inclusion of those with understanding of the history of this matter was disappointing, particularly given that FRA  and existing residents of Framlingham had played a considerable role during the decision-making process.

It was agreed that the Chairman would write to Philip Ridley expressing FRA’s disappointment at being excluded from this significant meeting.

Fairfield Road – Nothing new to report

Saxtead Road/Pepperwash Lane – It is understood more information will be forthcoming in the new year.

Request from Town Council for minutes of meetings
It was agreed that the minutes of FRA meetings, redacted as necessary for confidentiality purposes be made available on the website, and that at the next meeting the committee would discuss at what stage the minutes would be posted (i.e. whether in draft or only once agreed).  The Constitution already appears on the website.

Date of next meeting – Monday 4 February, 7.30, XXXX.
