Despite receiving approval from Wychavon District Council for a formal application for funding from the Community Legacy Grant Scheme, Charlton Parish Council will not be progressing with the plan for a children’s playground in Charlton at this time. As part of the consultation process required in order to qualify for grant funding, we distributed a survey to all households in the village, and while there was a clear 3:2 majority in favour of the scheme, there were sufficient objections, mostly concerning the proposed location, to cause us to reconsider the project. At this time, we are unable to identify any suitable alternative sites within the village, however, in the event that some new housing development occurs in the future, this would provide us with an opportunity to revisit the project.
