Dixies Meadow For Sale -update 29 March 2021

Dixies Meadow meeting on 18 March 2021

The Chairman & Vice Chairman had a meeting with the Farrs and their agent Savills (on behalf of the Parish Council as agreed at the March Parish Council meeting).

We made it clear at the outset of the meeting that our position in respect of ‘development’ or ‘no development’ was impartial and that we were duty bound to canvas opinion throughout the Ashwell community once there was more clarity over the options being proposed by the Vendors.


The key points to emerge from the discussion were:

  • Direct contact with the Parish Council was appreciated and welcomed by the Vendors. Further dialogue was agreed.
  • It was clear that the Vendors have no appetite for selling it at Amenity Land value.
  • We made it clear that the Village community may not support any development proposal on the site.
  • The Vendors proposed to provide the Parish Council with a small number of development options to demonstrate ways of addressing density, form and visual character implications.
  • A further meeting would be arranged once the Farrs and Savills had prepared their options.
