Malvern Hills District Council have emailed Abberley Parish Council to request a new street name from Abberley Parish Council for the new development of 26 properties on the land at Clows Top Road, Abberley (near Abberley Parochial (VC) Primary School).
Abberley Parish Council would welcome Parishioners to choose their favourite option.
To vote you could simply email the clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org stating your favourite option or write your favourite option on a slip of paper and place in a box provided in the Village Shop.
The area, now approved for development, is designated on old maps as ‘the meadow behind the house’ – the house being Walshes’ farmhouse. Since medieval times and indeed, well into the twentieth century, the land had been farmed by the Walshes; a well known and respected family in Abberley and the surrounding area.
A descendant of the Walshe family, the Revd Francis Severne, Rector of Abberley, established in his will of 1828, the Abberley Charity. Its purpose was to educate a number of village boys with funds provided by income from the fields at Walshes Farm.
Votes will be counted on 31st May and a further press release will appear on the website with the result.
Could any suggestions be submitted to the Clerk to Abberley Parish Council at email@example.com no later than 31st May 2020 for consideration at the next Parish Council meeting on Wednesday 17th June at 7.30pm via ZOOM.
