The Society continues to press SDC to use all means available to the Council including the threat of compulsory purchase to get the Farmers site into development. The President and the Chairman of the Townscape and Planning Group recently met Councillor Peter Fleming, the Leader of the Council, in order to discuss the options. Councillor Fleming said that SDC had made a number of direct and indirect approaches to the site’s owners without success. He undertook to carry out a further economic appraisal and inform us of SDC’s conclusions.
