Village green decision delay

By Martin Neville

Monday, January 20, 2014


A DECISION on whether to designate Yarmouth Recreation Ground a village green has been deferred for a second time.

The Isle of Wight Council appeals sub committee was due to consider a recommendation to register the land, excluding the pavilion, today (Monday), but the meeting was declared inquorate after a committee member phoned in sick.

The meeting, which was adjourned to a date to be fixed, heard the committee already had two vacancies and was unable to find a replacement for today’s meeting.

It followed a deferment last September after an appeal from the landowners for more time.
