What Future For Our Brownfield Sites?

Our 2019 AGM at Chard Guildhall was a well attended and enjoyable event in a great venue.  Thanks to everyone who came. 

Our speakers were CPRE Chief Executive Crispin Truman, Rebecca McElliott from South Somerset District Council's Chard Regeneration Project and Mike Taylor from Chilmark Consulting.  They gave first hand examples of successes and challenges in developing brownfield sites and why we should be looking at these first instead of sacrificing our green fields. Lots of good questions came from our well-informed audience which was made up of CPRE members as well as Parish and District Councillors.

During the AGM proceedings, members agreed to adopt the new Articles of Association which brings us up to date with Charity Commission requirements.  Minutes of the 2019 AGM can be downloaded below
